Mumbai: The Indian Premier League (IPL) will go on as per schedule, according to Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Committee of Administrators (COA) chief Vinod Rai.
There has been some confusion regarding the IPL schedule, after the BCCI released its new constitution earlier this week. The new constitution brings the one-state-one-vote policy that the Lodha committee suggested to the Supreme Court.
However, Rai refuted these rumours, saying that the IPL will go on, as per schedule.
"IPL is happening and it is on schedule," Rai said to India Today.
"We are trying our best to be in the saddle. Our commitment was to bring undiluted cricket to the country. It is a governance structure that we are playing with,” said Rai.
"The COA appointed by the Supreme Court are established people in the governance. Someone has played the game, someone has written about the game," he continued.
"There is a model constitution put out and the state association will have to put it out. Most of the state associations are co-operating. We are trying to implement the recommendations as early as possible."
