According to sources, a faction of BCCI has raised the issue of the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) administrators still not functioning fully after the board recently revoking the suspension of the state body. It is leaned that a section in the board is lobbying for matches to be hosted at the new stadium in Lucknow.
It is also learnt that the IPL Governing Council will meet on Monday to discuss the possible options, including the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur, which was Royals' base before it was suspended. The venues for Kings XI Punjab's home matches will also be finalised on the same day.
"The Rajasthan High Court had directed to RCA to hold general body meeting to implement the clauses put in by BCCI to revoke the suspension and allow elected administrators to resume functioning. They have held an emergent general meeting and done the required. The next hearing, where RCA will put up its final submission, is on January 24," as told by a top BCCI official.
