    Johnson Cherian, Lalit Modi and a couple of domains

    Over 3 years ago, I'd written about one of the BCCI's domains - bcciratings.com. The domain was registered under a name 'Johnson Cherian'. I now notice that the domain has Lalit Modi as an administrative and technical contact.

    Tinu Cherian reckons that the ownership details of iplt20.com changed on 19 April.

    I don't think his reasoning is right. The 'Updated 1 hour ago' entry he points to merely indicates that the whois server fetched the data 1 hour ago. Just click on the "Refresh" link to see the last update details change.

    But yes, the larger issue is that iplt20.com and clt20.com (the Champions Twenty20 League domain) are owned by someone from Modi Entertainment Network, even though the BCCI's address is provided.

    So, is Johnson Cherian someone who works for Lalit Modi at the BCCI office? He does seem to work at Modi Entertainment Network, since he is listed as the administrative contact for modi.com as well.

    In passing, you can actually go and buy the iplt20.com domain. The whois record indicates the domain expired over a month ago.

    For the record, just in case the ownership data changes, here's what the whois information looks like:
