Brad Hodge awaits compensation from banned IPL franchise Kochi Tuskers Kerala

New Delhi, July 13: Days after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) paid Rs 2.23 crore after he missed the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 due to injury, former Australia cricketer Brad Hodge wonders if he'll ever get his dues cleared from Kochi Tuskers Kerala.

"I see Mohammed shami got compensated for injury during @IPL in 2015 from @BCCI . Any chance they can compensate the kochi tuskers players," tweeted Hodge, who is the coach of IPL franchise Gujarat Lions.

Kochi Tuskers Kerala was launched in IPL 2011 and was a consortium of five companies put together by Rendezvous Sports World. Within a year, the team's contract was terminated after the franchise failed to deposit its annual bank guarantee.

The IPL squad included VVS Laxman, Brendon McCullum, Ravindra Jadeja, Parthiv Patel and Muttiah Muralitharan. The players were auctioned for the subsequent season, following Kochi's termination.

In January 2012, the BCCI reportedly suggested the overseas players to sue the Kochi Tuskers.

In 2015, Kochi Tuskers finally got some relief, after a long legal battle, when the court-appointed arbitrator Justice Lahoti directed the board to pay Rs 550 crore for terminating the franchise.

Hodge is not the only cricketer waiting his IPL dues to be cleared. Legendary Sri Lanka spinner Muttaiah Muralitharan and Mahela Jayawardene too want their dues to be cleared.

"The BCCI still owes me $400,000, and Mahela, who was the captain of the team, $500,000. I've written or spoken to the BCCI officials so many times in this regard, but despite many assurances on their part, nothing has happened. Overall, the BCCI owes the Kochi players more than $2 million," Muralitharan was quoted by TOI as saying.
