Last year, Australian batter, Brad Hodge had asked the BCCI about the money owed to him by the Kochi Tuskers Kerala for representing them in the 2010 Indian Premier League. He was responding to a claim in the ‘Telegraph’ that the BCCI had failed to pay the Indian women’s team their part of the USD 550,000 ICC prize money, the Australian cricketer had tweeted.

“Players are still owed 35% of their money earned from ten years ago from the IPL representing Kochi tuskers. Any chance BCCI could locate that money?” Hodge had tweeted. Rahul Dravid, S Sreesanth, and Mahela Jayawardene were among the players who represented the franchise, which was purchased for a whopping Rs 1,550 crore.
