Shashank Manohar: What he said, really meant and definitely did not


Shashank Manohar is Reclusively Recused

What he said:

“I wanted to give Modi no ground for complaint.”

Ex-BCCI President, Shashank Manohar, elaborates on why he recused himself from the disciplinary committee looking into alleged misdemeanours and violations by ex-IPL commissioner, Lalit Modi.

Manohar—a lawyer by profession—said:

The truth is he called me sometime in early May 2010, and told me that he would be making an allegation (questioning my neutrality) against me in the media. He said, ‘The truth is only known to you and me and I know that as per your nature you will not speak to the media.’ He also told me that Srinivasan was also involved in a few wrongdoings. I told Modi to point those out and assured him of action against Srinivasan too if he was indeed involved. He never got back.

What Shashank Manohar really meant:

“Lalit Modi made his point. Ipso facto, I recused myself.”

What Shashank Manohar definitely didn’t:

“Cleaning the BCCI’s Augean stables is right up my alley.”

What he said, really meant and definitely didn’t: Shane Warne

What  he said:

“I should have gifted Sanjay Dixit a pair of Spinners underwear.”

Shane Warne reacting to the $50,000 fine imposed on him by the IPL disciplinary committee on CNN-IBN.

What he really meant:

“As a peace-making gesture, I can’t think of anything else to trump that. Can’t gift Liz those anyway.”

“Come on, can I pass up free air time to promote my brand of clothing?”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Spinners underwear cost $50,000.”
