Mumbai:

The IPL Governing Council met in Mumbai on Wednesday to discuss plans for IPL 4 and planning for an auction for an 8th team as Kochi is likely to be out later this month.

The Kochi franchise has not resolved its differences over the ownership and control of the franchise and will not be able to meet the 30-day deadline issued to them. The IPL council on Wednesday approved the decision to tender for a new franchise as soon as the deadline is up on the 27th of November.

The players auctions for the IPL 4 will be held in January 8th and 9th next year. Each franchise can retain a maximum of up to 4 players & will be asked to submit its list of players it would like to retain by 5th December. Remember IPL 4 will begin just days after the ICC cricket World Cup.
