The two suspended IPL (Indian Premier League) teams, Chennai Super Kings and the Rajasthan Royals aren’t giving up their fight against the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India).

According to the news of CNN-IBN, both the franchises are likely to take the BCCI to court in the issue of they have to pay their franchise fee by January 2, despite being not allowed to play next two IPL seasons. The two franchise teams were suspended in the aftermath of the IPL spot-fixing scam.  

The BCCI sent them invoices for asking them 30 percent of the annual franchise fee within 2nd January 2016. The franchises urged that the fee is not meaningful as they are suspended.

Earlier this year, BCCI’s Working Committee didn’t appeal in the court against the Justice RM Lodha panel’s decision. According to the RM Lodha panel’s decision, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) will be suspended until 2018 due to the spot-fixing scandal in 2013.

The committee also decided that IPL would remain an eight-team event in the next two years (2016 and 2017). In December, it was decided that Pune and Rajkot are the two new franchises for the next two IPL.

Sanjiv Goenka’s company New Rising bought the Pune franchise while Intex mobile won the Rajkot bid in the reverse bidding process.

The ninth edition of the IPL will be held from 9th April 2016 to 29th May 2016.
