Bombay High Court’s order on Wednesday to move out of drought-hit Maharashtra the 13 Indian Premier League matches allotted to the Maharashtra after April 30. This matches may shift to Karela.
“The only stadium now fit to stage international cricket matches in Kerala is the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi, but a refurbishment is currently on to make it a likely venue for the 17th edition of the U-17 FIFA World Cup that India will host next year,” he said.
“So, Kerala will not be able to stage any IPL matches that are going to be moved out of Maharashtra,” said Mathew.
The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium was the home ground for Kochi Tuskers in IPL 2011, but its franchise was cancelled by the BCCI.
It was big loss to the Maharashtra public and government to loss IPL Matches even they shift that matches is there any possibility that government satisfy need of water to the Maharashtra public.
Even few days back World T20 Matches was played in Mumbai and there were 4 matches played and same water was used to maintain the ground so is this correct decision to shift the matches from Maharashtra ??
