Similarly, the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) has received a payout of Rs 6.75 crore as part of their dues. The Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) was also reimbursed an amount close to Rs. 30 Lakh for hosting the U23 CK Nayudu Trophy as well as the Knockout matches.

Three Indian Premier League Franchises, the Mumbai Indians, the Kings XI Punjab and the Delhi Daredevils have been given advance payments as they contest their place in the ongoing ninth edition of the IPL. The parent companies, of each franchise, had been paid the money instead of the IPL franchises itself.

KPH Dream Cricket Private Limited, the holding company of the Punjab franchise was paid a whopping 21.90 Crores while the Mumbai franchise under the name Indiawin Sports Private Limited was paid 22.90 Crores. The Delhi franchise owned by the GMR group was reimbursed the same amount as the Mumbai Indians franchise.
