Lalit Modi has now taken his pissy little administracratic grudge match with Giles Clarke to the next level by suing him for defamation.
I have no idea how rich Giles is, but his suits never fit, and that is never a good sign.
The problem with Lalit just suing Giles, the man he barely contains his hatred for, is that he is leaving out at least 70% of all cricket fans.
I cannot believe that even those who like the IPL haven’t defamed Lalit just once or twice.
The last time you mentioned him to your mates you probably defamed him.
There, you just did it again, didn’t you?
In modern cricket there is no one easier to defame than Lalit, he practically demands you to have a go at him.
I’ve never been sued for defamation (it amazes me too), but Lalit would be a good place to start.
Lalit knows what it is like to be on both sides of defamation after twittercusing Chris Cairns of match fixing. Although I believe he is still yet to be served for that one.
As for the reasons of the Giles lawsuit, it seems a bit unnecessary, Giles is accused of saying Lalit was trying to take over world cricket and English cricket, if you are a well funded politically minded cricket administracrat and you haven’t ever thought of taking over English or World cricket, you aren’t really trying.
I plan on taking over world cricket all the time.
It is just I have no money, contacts, or natural Lalit business sense.
I don’t think Giles’ comments really changed anyone’s mind on Lalit, the good thing about Lalit is most of us found it easier to not like him from the start.
