BCCI terminates Deccan Chargers franchise

BCCI decides to expand IPL

Deccan Chargers thrown out of IPL for non payment of fees

The Board of Control for Cricket in India has terminated the contract of the Indian Premier League franchise Deccan Chargers. The BCCI said the decision to terminate the IPL contract of Deccan Chargers was taken after “careful deliberation” and only due to the absolute inability of the franchise to effectively run the team. With the BCCI-Deccan Chargers stand-off now becoming a legal battle, the Cricket Board on Saturday decided to add a new team for the coming IPL season while leaving it to the court to rule on the beleaguered franchise's participation.
