India Cements Ltd. is planning to challenge the Lodha Committee verdict suspending the franchise for two years from playing in the league. CSK owner held a discussion on the Lodha committee verdict and decided to go Supreme Court of India seeking relief.

The Supreme appointed committee made the decision to suspend Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals in accordance with the rules that stated that a franchise can even be terminated if a team owner was found guilty of betting or related activate.

Sources in the CSK legal team say there is provision to challenge the order. The Lodha Committee decided on the quantum of punishment after investigation by the Mudgal Committee. Both were appointed by the Supreme Court of India and while India Cements look for relief, Justice Mudgal felt that it will be of little use.


“If you read the Supreme Court’s order, in the last line says, this will be subject to any remedy in accordance with law. So challenge is available, the question is, when a committee comprising a former Chief Justice and two former Supreme Court judges gives a report, it is highly unlikely that a court will interfere in that verdict. I can’t rule it out. Theoretically it is possible,” Justice Mudgla  said.

The Lodha Committee report will also be sent to the BCCI disciplinary committee and the Board president Jagmohan Dalmiya will consult a lawyer and brief the media in detail.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra said he was shocked and disappointed. He is now trying to file a RTI to make public the justice Mudgal committee report.


Kundra, even snapped reporting that published Wednesday morning (today) newspaper, calling them “careless journalism.”


With this verdict, the future of IPL has become unclear and the question is will the tournament will go ahead with six teams next year.
