Former union minister Shashi Tharoor sees a ray of hope in BCCI's decision to postopone a final decision on the fait of the Kochi IPL team to December 5.

"I think the team will become a reality as BCCI's decison holds some hope to save it", the Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram told reporters here today.

Tharoor, who had to resign as minister of state for external affairs an year back amid controversies over his role as a "mentor" of the Kochi team, said if the team fructified it would do good for cricket in Kerala in particular and sporting activities in general.

He was here to attend a private function.
