The Indian Premier League franchise Kochi Tuskers Kerala is likely to face action from the Board of Control for Cricket in India as it has allegedly not cleared its dues to the board.

There are some pending contractual obligations that KTK is yet to clear, and it needs to be sorted out, The Economic Times reported.

“The contractual obligations pertain to payments and bank guarantees,” BCCI sources said on request of anonymity.

These sources informed that “so far”, the issue is not on the agenda of BCCI s Annual General Meet starting Monday, September 19, but they insisted that the action is inevitable.

“BCCI as a body has a responsibility and remedial actions will have to be taken in case obligations are not met by Kochi.”

Meanwhile, a KTK spokesperson has denied such allegations, adding that they have paid all their dues on time and have also not received any complaints from the BCCI.

Throughout Sunday, September 18, news channels telecasted news regarding the BCCI suspending KTK from the next IPL season due to pending contractual obligations that include non-payment of dues and bank guarantees.

The BCCI sources, however, didn t confirm whether KTK will be suspended or not.
