Kings XI says too early to comment on termination agreement

Chandigarh: Kings XI Punjab on Sunday said it is “premature” to comment on its termination from the Indian Premier League “for violation of the franchise agreement”.

“It is too early and premature to comment on this,” Col (retd) Aravinder Singh, KXIP Vice President (cricket operations), told a news agency.

Asked if his franchise would contemplate any legal action against the termination, he said “let us first get hold of the facts (pertaining to the termination) and then we will see how to proceed”.

“But till we apprise ourselves about the facts, we would not like to say anything,” he said.

The BCCI on Saturday unanimously decided to “terminate” the franchise agreements of KXIP and Rajasthan Royals, while sparing the newly-inducted Kochi.

The Kochi franchisee has been asked to resolve their disputes in 10 days.
