The meeting of the Governing council of the Indian Premier League was smoothly held in Delhi, on Thursday and it seems that the conflict between the parties in the Board of Control for Cricket in India has finally ended.
The concerns were deeply discussed during the meeting as the Government council didn't keep any feeling of bitterness towards each other. One of the major decisions that were taken during the meeting was that the playoffs will be played at Mumbai and Bangalore. The decision was made collectively to assign the matches to these two places.
The GC called by the committee of administrators (CoA) was attended by all the office bearers. The whole team took some decisions without an accord and the chief of COA Vinod Rai made a declaration that the office bearers will call the Special General Meeting (SGM). After further discussions, it has been decided unanimously that SGM will take place on 9th of April in Delhi.
One of the BCCI said, “Our stand has been vindicated. Mr. Rai has conceded that we were well within our rights to hold the SGM. It will now be held in Delhi as scheduled.”
The Governing Council decided to a lot the Qualifier 1 of May 16th to the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai while the eliminator and Qualifier 2 of on May 17th and May 19th respectively will be played at the Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore. Hyderabad will host the final of the Indian Premier League on the May 21st.
