New Delhi:

It seems there is yet another controversy brewing in Indian cricket, and the latest casualty of the fight between the BCCI bosses and Lalit Modi is the International Management Group or IMG.

The IMG had come up with the format of the tournament and has been conducting it for the last two years. Incidentally, the BCCI bosses thought that they were over-charging the board for organising the league, as result the board's profit from IPL were going southwards.

Also BCCI is not happy with IPL having given compensation to two franchises, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals for last year's Champions League T20 that had got cancelled.

The contract with IMG was only for conducting IPL and not for Champions League T20. So IPL has been asked to let go of IMG.
