As Justice RM Lodha headed Committee suspended Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, the main question to come out from the crickte fold is: Will IPL go ahead with six team tournament or will they float tenders for two new teams?  According to former vice chairman of the IPL Niranjan Shah, BCCI is chalking out the option for two new teams. Earlier, after the Lodha committee verdict IPL chairperson Rajiv Shukla also said that the league will feature eight teams.  

“That is the only solution. If the two suspended teams were to come back two years later, we can have 10 teams, which is not, anyway, new to the IPL. By the way, the BCCI had toyed with the idea of having 12 teams in the league,” Niranjan Shah, a former vice-chairman of the IPL, told to The Mirror.   

In the wake of Lodha Committee verdict a big question mark is now looming over the future of IPL as the tournament is suffering from big credibility crisis, IPL Governing Council called an emergency meeting on Sunday. It is understood that BCCI mandarins might take final decision about new tenders. A majority of State Associations wants BCCI to do it.  

Meanwhile, former BCCI president Shasank Manohar flew to Kolkata to meet Jagmohan Dalmiya. It is learnt that Manohar went to Kolkata to convince the incumbent BCCI president, the “need to cleanse the IPL.”  It is also learnt that Manohar is in favour of terminating the contract of CSK and RR, an option left to BCCI by Justice RM Lodha.

If the report is to be believed, Manohar went to Kolkata with the message that many state boards also want to terminate the contract of two franchises for two years.

The Mirror quoted a unanimous source, who belongs to a state board, as saying, “That is the opinion of many state associations. Manohar has gone to Kolkata with that message.”

The termination of contract is not new to IPL. Earlier, Shank Manohar, who run the board with transparency, had snapped the IPL contract of Rajasthan Royals, Kochi Tuskers, and Kings XI Punjab as they breached the agreement. However, they later bounced back through legal means, and two of them got into the league itself.
