Kundra fate in balance
A decision on whether Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra will be present at the venue during the Champions League Twenty20 will be taken after the IPL Governing Council formally clears the NRI businessman in the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal.
“We are very happy to know that Mr Kundra’s name has been cleared of any wrongdoing during the BCCI working committee meeting. The franchise will come out with an official statement once the IPL governing council ratifies the decision of the working committee,” a senior Royals official said.
Asked whether the co-owner of the Jaipur-based franchise will be there in the stands to cheer the team during the upcoming Champions League Twenty20, the official said. “A call in this regard will be taken after the IPL governing council meeting on August 2.
As of now, the BCCI hasn’t made any formal contact with us or issued a notification about clearing Kundra.”
