Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi has denied reports that Deccan Chargers may refuse to defend the title because it is unhappy over a switch of venues for its home matches.
Several newspaper reports have said that a law firm acting for the team had issued a legal notice stating that Modi’s decision to switch its matches from Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam to other cities violated its franchise agreement.
But Modi said on Tuesday on Twitter: “Reports that DC will not play or xyz may not - please ignore such news. All IPL teams will participate. You have my assurance on that.”
