The Indian Premier League’s Governing Council (GC) will meet on Wednesday in Nagpur to decide the fate of the Kochi franchise.
India captain Sunil Gavaskar has helped the Kochi Indian Premiere League (IPL) franchise. This was confirmed by the Gaikwad family which owns 25 per cent free equity and 1 per cent paid equity in the team.
“We have Gavaskar’s support and full backing. It was under his guidance that we had decided to get into this,” a family member said.
Gavaskar confirmed that he was approached by the franchise. He said, “They have asked me, individually and collectively, to come in for the cricketing part of the team. I will take a call once the internal issues are resolved.”
Kochi Indian Premier League franchise had been given ten days by the IPL governing council to resolve its differences or face the axe from IPL like Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab.
The Kochi franchisee submitted its reply on the last day of the deadline.
