IPL Spot-Fixing Petitioner Urges BCCI President Sourav Ganguly To Conduct IPL 2020 In India And Not UAE
IPL spot-fixing petitioner Aditya Verma has urged the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly to conduct the thirteenth season of the T20 League in India and not in UAE. Verma told PTI that he feels UAE is also not safe. It is the pandemic that has forced BCCI to take the decision of shifting the tournament – which was initially slated to start earlier this year from March 29.
“The Dubai Rugby Sevens is a big event in the UAE and they had to postpone it when it was supposed to be held in November. So how can we take IPL to UAE. I have written to Dada (Ganguly) and requested him to have IPL in India,” Verma told PTI.
“We have 60 plus foreigners. If they are not willing to come, we can replace them with Indian players,” the secretary of the unsanctioned Cricket Association of Bihar said.
“An IPL in India would help to uplift the mood of the common public which is already stressed by COVID-19. If we can hold a successful IPL in India in these times, it will be a huge achievement,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, the IPL Governing Council is set to meet today to finalise things and give clarity to the franchises, so that they can start their preparations.
