Meanwhile, according to the reports of Cricbuzz, the last word on the CVC sports is not out yet. It was reported that the successful bid by the private equity firm for the Ahmedabad franchise has gone into negotiations with the American company and they are trying to clarify to the BCCI officials that its investment in a UK betting firm, which has become a bone of contention, is not illegal.

As a result, there has been a delay in CVC getting a Letter of Intent by BCCI. However, this has not been the case with the owners of the Lucknow franchise, RPSG Group of Sanjiv Goenka as they have already received the letter of intent.

The reports from Cricbuzz further added that the top CVC official has flown to India as well as Dubai to have talks with the BCCI officials. Also, they are expected to have a meeting on Monday, November 15 or in the next couple of days.

Ahead of that BCCI’s legal team are already looking into the CVC files and it is expected that a committee might be formed to solve this matter. Notably, BCCI has already informed the bidding parties that there will be a full-scale study of their business.

BCCI insiders say that the bidding parties were told on October 25, when the auction had taken place in Dubai, that there may be a full-scale study of their business roots as it was not possible to go through all the papers on that day itself. The BCCI had given itself time up to December 31 for the second round of due diligence, if needed,” As reported by Cricbuzz.
