Hyderabad: What is in a name, asked the Bard. However, a much-thought of name is ostensibly about to cause dismay to a newly-cricketing entity.A A private complaint has been filed against Sun Group and the BCCI in the City Civil Courts for using the name of Sunrisers Hyderabad for its IPL franchise.
The complaint has been filed by Abed Moinuddin, Editor of an English news weekly magazine titled Sunriser, which is published in the Old City.
Abed told reporters here on Thursday that influential business captains from Chennai had bought the IPL cricket team, whose name 'Sunrisers' has been affecting the interests of his periodical. He lamented that scores of individuals had been calling the magazine office seeking various details of the matches that was affecting the functioning of the periodical.
He pointed out that they had to approach the court as a last resort because "numerous notices to the team management have been futile because they have not responded."
