Partha Jindal had said – group competition can be held in Mumbai
Recently, Delhi Capitals team co-owner Parth Jindal said, ‘I believe that IPL can be done in two faces in two faces. It is heard that a venue may be Mumbai, as there are 3 grounds (Wankhede, Brabourne and DY Patil Stadium) here. There are also very good facilities for practice. Knockout matches of the league can take place in Motera (Ahmedabad). However, this has not been confirmed yet. This is everything I heard. ‘
There should be matches in most cities for the preparation of T20 World Cup.
Partha had said, ‘I think we should get the IPL done in most cities of the country. Along with this, the world should also give the message that we are also ready for the T20 World Cup to be held in October. I think they (BCCI) are yet to wait. I believe that the board is looking at the current situation of Corona in the country and will take a decision accordingly.
