BCCI may shift Royals games
New Delhi - The beleaguered Board of Control for Cricket in India may force Indian Premier League franchise the Rajasthan Royals to move its matches out of its home city of Jaipur in what could be a double blow for the former champions.
The Royals, who are already planning to contest a $18.8 million fine handed down earlier this week by India's Enforcement Directorate for flouting foreign exchange rules, has been given until Wednesday by the BCCI to settle matters with its stadium owners or risk losing IPL home games, according to Wednesday's The Times of India.
The Royals have payment issues with the Rajasthan State Sports Council, which owns Jaipur's Sawai Man Singh Stadium.
The BCCI is facing troubles of its own after being served a $433 million income tax notice.
