BCCI not aware of Sunil Gavaskar’s IPL link with Kochi

New Delhi: The BCCI today said it was not aware of the Kochi consortium’s ‘links’ with ex-Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar, who was a member of the IPL’s Governing Council before being ousted a few weeks ago.

The fate of the Kochi consortium, which has sought some more time to resolve its internal differences, would be decided tomorrow in a meeting of the IPL Governing Council in Nagpur.

Gavaskar has been roped in an advisory capacity by the franchise, which says it did so after he had been ousted from the Governing Council. BCCI vice-President Rajiv Shukla said the Board was not aware of the consortium’s move.

"We were not aware of Gavaskar’s links with the Kochi IPL," Shukla said.

"We were never informed because this issue was never there. This is for the first time we are coming to know about this.(PTI)
