New Delhi [India], Aug 6 (ANI): Former Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Rajeev Shukla is confident that the 2020 edition of the IPL will be successful, saying that UAE is the best place for staging this year’s tournament.
The 13th edition of the T20 tournament will be staged at three venues (Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah) in the UAE.
Reflecting on the same, Shukla said, “Vivo and BCCI have mutually decided to suspend Vivo's sponsorship for this season. It will impact revenue and that would be a problem but our prime focus is to start cricket, priority is to start cricket. 182 countries watch cricket. To start cricket this has been done.”
After tensions flared up at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) between Indian and Chinese troops in June, there were calls for boycotting Chinese products in the country.
Shukla further added, “Keeping in the mind current atmosphere, current environment, current perception this decision has been taken which is fully correct and we endorse that.” (ANI)
