Days after fans expressed their anguish at Team Kochi adopting the name 'Indi Commando' and doing away with the name of the city and the state itself, the owners- Kochi Cricket Private Ltd- have begun an online poll to invite fans to vote on their favourite options.

Seen as a move to appease disgruntled fans, the team which will make its Indian Premier League (IPL) debut this season has provided six options including Titans, Tuskers, Heroes and United. Interestingly, there also exists the option of choosing between Kochi and Kerela as the first name.

Having spent considerable financial resources on creating a dedicated fan base, the owners had fueled speculation of even moving the team away from Kochi. The online poll is being billed as an assurance that the team management and the owners have no such intention.
