The Kochi Tuskers Kerala IPL franchise has been terminated by the BCCI for breaching its terms of conditions, the new board president N Srinivasan has said after the annual general meeting in Mumbai.
"Because of the irremediable breach committed by the Kochi franchise, the BCCI has decided to encash the bank guarantee in their possession and also terminate the franchise," Srinivasan said. When asked if the franchise had any chance of return, Srinivasan responded: "No, we have terminated the franchise because the breach is not capable of being remedied."

Very good decision. Actually it was owned by a few Gujarati businessmen and they where trying to shift home town to Ahemadabad. They choose the name Kochi just as an eye wash and there was too much controversies about the team. The only thing I feel sad is about Sashi Tharoor. Poor fellow lost his job because of this team and is still having a bad time. Let us hope future teams will be headed by a strong consortium or person than a bunch of greedy businessmen who bought Kochi team.

BCCI got many complaints from people across India who watch (still) watched IPL 4 that their eyes were damaged temporarily due to the unnatural colors worn by Kochi franchise :p

BCCI should not terminate Kochi location. Rather they should terminate group which owns Kochi team, and invite fesh bids from other companies to own the team for next season.The new company which would own Kochi team should have conditions that they retain existing players at least for some time period (like 3 years).
