The Bombay High Court has adjourned its hearing on the petition filed by Deccan Chargers against their termination from the Indian Premier League to September 24, and asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) not to float any new tender for a new franchise in Hyderabad.
“The BCCI filed a counter-affidavit,” a board official told ESPNcricinfo. “Deccan Chargers wanted some time to go through [the papers]. The affidavit discloses that that we were never going to float a new tender for a franchise in Hyderabad in any case.”
