New Delhi: Kings XI Punjab were forced to play the waiting game after the Bombay High Court adjourned the hearing of their case against the BCCI challenging the franchisee's termination from the Indian Premier League.
Kings XI were hoping for an interim relief along the lines of Rajasthan Royals, who had managed to obtain a stay order against the scrapping of their team from the IPL by the Board.
Earlier, after a seesaw battle, the Kochi IPL team got the green signal from BCCI to participate in the fourth edition of the cash-rich event.
The decision was taken after a lengthy Governing Council meeting in Mumbai. With that, the franchisee also became the eighth team to participate in the next edition of the IPL.
