Mumbai: BCCI president N Srinivasan on Thursday refused to talk about the issue of IPL franchise Deccan Chargers as it was sub-judice, but said that the Board can advertise for a new team to be added to the Indian Premier League.
"I cannot comment on the matter (of Deccan Chargers) as it is currently sub-judice. I'm informed that the court may issue an order soon," Srinivasan told reporters after the Board's 83rd AGM.
"But as far as the Board is concerned, it is at liberty to advertise for another franchise. But that's a decision to be taken. If we have to go with nine teams, so be it," he added.
