The management of Rajasthan Royals team which has been scrapped by the BCCI due to breach of agreement has issued a statement where they have intended to take legal recourse to protect their investment but also said that forcing someone to opt the legal route is a shame for those who want to invest in sport in India.
The management is also upset that the decision to de-franchise them was taken without issuing a proper show cause notice.
The statement issued by the franchise stated: "Rajasthan Royals are shocked and surprised by the termination notice today, particularly without issuance of the showcause notice described to the media ten days ago, which was never received. Naturally we will need some time to review the termination notice sent today, such that we can provide a considered response."
The management also claimed that they have conducted themselves in a transparent manner.
"We have always conducted ourselves transparently in accordance with our contract terms and only desire fair and unbiased treatment from the BCCI. If the only way to achieve this is through legal recourse, then that is a shame for those that seek to invest in sport in India."
"We are proud of the role that we have played in building the IPL into one of the most successful sporting events in history, and we intend to protect our investment and our brand - especially for the millions of fans that we have across the world."
