A source close to BCCI has said a recording to inside sport sources : ” 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 previous case of player poaching happened in 2010 for which Ravindra Jadeja was banned for a year from IPL

This is a piece of development that will be under the probing  eyes of the media and it remains to be seen what verdict BCCI comes up with in this respect .
