Will CVC Sign Ravi Shastri For The Ahmedabad IPL Team

According to the source, the existing India head coach is interested in a coaching job in the IPL in exchange for a comeback to commentary. If he accepts a commentary contract with the BCCI and subsequently accepts a coaching position with an IPL franchise, he will be in a dispute of interest scenario. Having said that, Ravi Shastri may directly connect with the broadcaster while still being active with the IPL side, as VVS Laxman has done in previous.

The BCCI has chosen to extend the 2 additional IPL clubs to sign up to 3 players outside of the bidding in order to begin developing their teams. For the very same cause, CVC Capitals is anxious to finalize the agreement with the backroom personnel as soon as possible since they want the experts to be engaged in decisions about competitive balance and other considerations.

They are also trying to hire a CEO and an administrative manager as soon as possible to handle a lot of functions. There were concerns about their presence in the IPL just a few days after they purchased the Ahmedabad club for INR 5600 crore last month. CVC drew negative attention for its participation in a betting company in the United Kingdom. Furthermore, the BCCI has now approved them and, according to reports, BCCI also signed the franchise contract.
