    4 IPL vs Media




    When the league was launched in 2008, strict guidelines were enforced on the media covering matches, causing furore across the media fraternity.

    2 Kochi fiasco



    On September 19, 2011, the Kochi Tuskers Kerala franchise was terminated by the BCCI for 'breaching its terms of agreement'. The consortium that owns Kochi had allegedly 'defaulted on an annual payment'.
