The abridged version of Lalit Modi’s response to the second show-cause notice

Over at cricinfo there is the complete and uncut Lawyer’s edition of what Lalit Modi said in response to the BCCi’s second show-cause notice.

I’ve read it, and somehow I survived.

It is really long. I obviously don’t like long. I like short. Like this sentence. Or this one.

But you still need to know what is says.

So here it is boiled down to twitter length nuggets.

“Giles thinks our shit is because of a personality clash. I think it is because he is a cunt.”

“Differences between Giles and me came in connection to me calling him a cunt, and him calling me a dodgy bastard.”

“I don’t give a fuck about some English idiot who can’t wear suits that fit, give me my league back.”

“Giles is a prick, but I made you millions and you guys are still giving me shit. That’s cold, dawg”.

“In this particular even I did nothing wrong, and here is 7417 words to prove this. Suckers.”

“I really am a good guy, trust me on that. You should give me my job back, or I’ll send more emails this long.”

There are probably really important details in his email, but that is the thing with things of this length, yawn.

Lalit is fighting for his career, and this is the email of someone fighting for his career.

The good thing about this conflict is you don’t have to pick sides, you can hate Giles and Lalit and then have a glass of mountain dew (or put Vodka in it and call it Goat’s piss).

As for the email, this is a hardcore apologia. Nerdy children should read this for when they want to get out breaking their mum’s vase in a mock indoor test match.

It isn’t the first apologia I’ve read in recent times, the last one was “written” by Ricky Ponting in the form of a diary.

Lalit and Ricky don’t like each other, but when it comes to explaining away why other people are in the wrong and they are in the right, both of them are very similar.  They write very long things that put me to sleep.

Maybe they aren’t so different. They should start a club.

    My favorite apologia has to be the brawl letter from Ravindra Jadeja.

    I admit, it’s nowhere near as flowery but it cuts to the point with it’s twisted in knots denial of any wrongdoing in the form of a sorry letter.

    “No way I was involved in any ugly brawl and I went to the pub only to have dinner with my teammates.”

    Now, I probably should feel bad about the fact that English is obviously not his first language but I think a weasel move is the same in any tongue.

    The beauty of this is that the biggest threat to international cricket, the BCCI, cricket in India and the future of humanity is the IPL, which Lalit M so delightfully gloats over through the course of this letter…

    Thank you for summarising it, could you put that up at Cricinfo please? Possibly at the top of the original message? I capitulated after scrolling down to the bottom to see how long it is.

    This is a piece of crap. But, curious as to how cricinfo has such good access to BCCI emails and documents? Do they have some kind of sweat equity deal with them?
