Following the news of BCCI proposing to ban the IPL team Rajasthan Royals from any further participation on August 10, co-owner and actor Shilpa Shetty came out on Twitter to claim that all such reports are false.
She tweeted: “News about Banning the Rajasthan Royals is NOT true. So to all the RR fans. Don’t panic.” The team was brought under the scanner when reports suggested that the former commissioner of the league, Lalit Modi owned a share in the team. The BCCI wants to set an example to prove that no illegality will be permitted.
