BCCI may shift out beleaguered Rajasthan Royals' IPL games

Rajasthan Royals

The Mail Today newspaper reported on Monday that the BCCI has formed a committee headed by treasurer Ajay Shirke to finalize its plan of action in respect to the tax issues.

The BCCI has had a troubled history with its IPL franchises and has scrapped two teams over payment and ownership issues in the past.

Hyderabad franchise the Deccan Chargers was replaced by the Hyderabad Sunrisers under a new owner this year, while the Kochi Tuskers were terminated after only one year in 2011.

The Pune Warriors, which was among two franchises added to the original eight teams along with Tuskers in the 2011 season, also announced it was withdrawing its team from the IPL last year before arriving at a compromise with the BCCI.

The IPL had previously ousted the Royals and the Kings XI Punjab over breaches of ownership rules before they were re-admitted following a court order.
