It’s back to square one for Kochi IPL team

Cricket News:

Team Kochi’s affairs have just got murkier. A day after putting up a united front, the members of the consortium are back to what they do best — fight amongst themselves. The newest from the mystery IPL franchise is that one faction has started questioning the other’s right to submit a reply to the showcause notice issued by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

As reported by this paper on Wednesday, the majority stakeholders of the consortium submitted a proposal of their combined venture, as required in the showcause notice.On Thursday, things took a different turn with sources hinting that notices likely to be sent from one faction to the other. Things have reached to such a stage that the whole issue has been taken over by lawyers of all parties, including the BCCI.

The BCCI’s lawyers are examining the reply and also the request for extension of deadline by a Rendezvous Sports World Pvt Ltd (RSPL) official. “We’ve got the reply and one person has sought extension of the deadline. We’re studying the letters,” said a top BCCI official. A conclusion will be taken by governing council of the IPL. The council is likely to meet early next week.
