Why is there no icon player for Deccan Chargers?
Posted by sriram on April 24, 2008
The answer is two-fold:
One version of the story is Deccan Chronicle owner of Deccan Chargers requested BCCI to grant icon status but they have declined.
Other version is, VVS Laxman has denied icon status as that would give the company more budget to work with. Remember icon player would recieve 15% more than the highest bid player. In this case its Andrew Symonds for $1.35 million. That would translate to $1.5525 million making VVS Laxman the richest player in IPL.
I would like to believe the second version of Laxman declining the icon status and getting the right team in place with the right bids. What he has to do now is deliver. He has do that right and fast. The time is now.
