Chennai Super Kings has switched its ownership from N Srinivasan who is the chairman of the India Cements to the shareholders of the India Cements. From 2008-2017 Chennai Super Kings was owned under the name Chennai Super Kings Cricket Ltd now it is owned under the name of Chennai Super Kings Sports Company Limited.
India Cements has transferred the share of Chennai Spur kings to the shareholders of India Cements with Chennai Super Kings valued at the low price of Rs 50 lakhs according to the document. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will have a huge loss as valuing the franchise low at Rs 50 lakh will reduce the transferring fee of BCCI. As BCCI gets the 10% of the money when the franchise ownership is changed.
IPL Governing Committee (GC) will investigate the CSK transfer, which is looking suspicious. Also, IPL GC member told that it will be looked by the legal department.
This issue related to CSK has been referred to our legal team. We will wait for their advice.
