Updated:8 months, 3 weeks ago IST

New Delhi, Mar 25 (ANI): Commenting on Steve Smith and David Warner's removal, the Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Rajeev Shukla on Sunday said, "this is a matter of serious concern for all of us." "We are waiting for decision of ICC and Cricket Australia before taking any step," he added. "Matches will start on 7th April and we will take decision before that, in coming 1-2 days. Announcing a decision today won't be right. We are holding discussions with those concerned," he added. Following the unraveling of a massive ball-tampering scandal, Steve Smith and David Warner agreed to step down as captain and vice-captain, respectively, for the remainder of the third Test against South Africa in Cape Town.
