Former Australian batsman Brad Hodge on Monday brazenly asked if BCCI had managed to “find” the money that the now defunct Kochi Tuskers Kerala owed him to represent in the 2010 edition of the Indian Premier League.
The 46-year-old has played 14 games for KTK, scoring 285 runs at an average of 35.63. It was purchased by Kochi Tuskers for $ 425,000 at auction in 2010.
“Players still owe 35% of their money won ten years ago by @IPL representing Kochi’s bikini. Any chance @BCCI to find that money? “, Tweet Hodge.
According to Hodge’s tweet, Kochi Tuskers still seems to owe the Australian more than $ 127,000.
He reacted to a report published in the Telegraph on the Indian women’s team, which did not receive its share of the $ 550,000 ICC BCCI award.
It should be noted that Kochi Tuskers were expelled after only one season due to non-compliance with the annual payment obligation of 155.3 kroner in 2011.
Players such as Rahul Dravid, S Sreesanth and Mahela Jayawardene had introduced the franchise, which was bought for the huge Rs 1550 crore. He had finished eighth in the tournament with 10 teams.
KTK did not pay the bank guarantee annually, which led to their termination by the money-rich league.
One of the co-owners of the franchise, Rendezvous Sports World, had dragged BCCI to the Bombay High Court, which ordered the Indian Council to pay the franchise 550 kroner.
In 2012, there were reports that some cricketers who played for the disbanded IPL team did not receive 30 to 40 percent of their promised pay.
