International investment firm Irelia Company Pte Ltd, an arm of CVC Capital Partners, successfully bid for the Ahmedabad franchise for Rs 5625 crore last month. But due to its alleged ties with the betting companies, the BCCI put a hold on issuing the letter of intent to both new franchises including Lucknow. The BCCI approached the solicitor general of India Tushar Mehta for guidance and now they have decided to go ahead with forming a committee. The decision by the committee will be final and binding.

“The board doesn’t want to leave anything to chance and want to be completely sure before giving the team to CVC. This is the reason the IPL GC has been called and they will form an independent panel comprising of some of the most well respected legal luminaries in the country,” a BCCI source informed InsideSport last week.
