New Delhi: Lack of viewership for the Indian Premier League (IPL) in Kerala has prompted the owners of Kochi Tuskers to request the Indian cricket board to shift the team's base to Ahmedabad.
An official of the franchise told IANS that they have written to Shashank Manohar, president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), and the IPL Governing Council will consider their request. The letter from Kochi Tuskers was discussed at the BCCI working committee meeting in Mumbai, Monday.
"We have suffered huge losses in our inaugural season this year. And there is no viewership for cricket in Kerala. We have asked the Board to shift the team's base to Ahmedabad," said Sanchit Aggarwal, a Kochi Tuskers official.
