India Cricket News: BCCI invites bids for new IPL team | ESPN Cricinfo

The BCCI has floated a tender, inviting bidders for a new IPL team following the termination of the Deccan Chargers franchise.

Leading Indian newspapers on Sunday carried an advertisement from the BCCI which read, "Under this invitation to tender, the winning bidder will be granted the right to own and operate a new team which will compete in the IPL in each year from and including 2013 onwards and will have the opportunity (if applicable and subject to qualification) to compete in each and any CLT20 which is staged from 2013 onwards." The deadline for submitting the bids is noon on October 25.

The bids have been invited with respect to 12 cities, including Hyderabad where the owners of the Deccan Chargers franchise were based. The others are Ahmedabad, Cuttack, Dharamsala, Indore, Kanpur, Kochi, Nagpur, Noida, Rajkot, Ranchi and Vizag.

This will show where the tournament stands. Question is about the players, will the new team inherit the players, or will there be another auction fiasco.

They stand to gain more money if new team is introduced into IPL instead of deccan chargers paying their dues and coming back. Damn BCCI
