Anyone reading the following HT report will assume that they are referring to Chennai Super Kings (Southern Franchise & Senior Indian Cricket Board Official Combo) and that the players are Ambatti Rayudu & Shadab Jakati.
Though this is nicely written as if the guilty party is Chennai Super Kings, it might actually refer to Bangalore Royal Challengers. (Refer: Siddharth Mallya's visit to Ranji Trophy Final to meet Rayudu & Anil Kumble is actually a senior Indian Cricket Board Official). Also it might actually be a franchise with powerful influence in newspapers preventing other franchises from signing players they want (Refer: Radiagate & the fact that one of the owners of IPL employs Radia). So just remember that there might be more to this story than actually meeting the eye.
