Sacked CEO of Rendezvous Consortium that won the IPL's Kochi franchise, Shailendra Gaikwad on Wednesday said that he had not invested in the venture and was connected with the team only in an administrative role.

"I am involved and connected with the team as an administrator to implement good ideas for cricket. I have nothing to do with the investment," Gaikwad told reporters in Solapur.

Neither me nor my family have any equity share in the Kochi team, he said.

Gaikwad said he enjoyed good relations with some cricketers including Sachin Tendulkar and Sunil Gavaskar but it was due to his interest in cricket.

"Money does not matter. I have good relations even with Pakistani batsman Zaheer Abbas," he added.
