In that case, the Lucknow based franchise offered him the INR 16 crores for the next season and INR 20 crores for the stylish right-handed batsman KL Rahul. "We haven’t received any letter but we have received a verbal complaint from two franchises about players poaching by Lucknow team.

We are looking into it, and we will take appropriate action if it proves to be true. We don’t want to disturb the balance. You cannot avoid such things when there is fierce competition. But it’s not fair to the existing teams when they are trying to balance everything," the BCCI official was quoted as in InsideSport.

"See, it’s obviously unfair. Till November 30, the players are under our contract and we have the right to negotiate and no one else as per BCCI guidelines. Hence, it is illegal as per the IPL charter. But it is not just about the new franchises.

In the past as well, many of our players were approached during the break or before an auction but this time with three first picks, it makes the job difficult for us. We can only hope that BCCI will make stricter guidelines and penalties in such instances for not just the player but also the franchise," another franchisee said to InsideSport.
