HC slams BCCI over Kings XI termination

first_imgThe Bombay High Court on Wednesday slammed Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for appealing against its stay order on the termination of Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kings XI Punjab’s agreement.Upholding its decision to grant relief to Kings XI Punjab against the BCCI petition, the high court lashed out at the board and said that the basis of termination of the team was erroneous and flawed.This effectively means that there would be 10 teams in the forthcoming fourth season of IPL which is scheduled to begin just six days after the ICC World Cup.The court emphasised that the basis on which the BCCI terminated the contract was factually incorrect.In its appeal the BCCI had claimed that Punjab did not make a strong prima facie case that its consortium members were always in control. The BCCI had also claimed that the franchise did not meet the legal requirements needed to get the interim stay.The latest court order comes as yet another setback to the BCCI which had earlier terminated the contract of Rajasthan Royals along with that of Punjab.last_img
