IPL GC yet to decide on the venue for the summit clash

Mumbai: In an attempt to get back the IPL final on June 1, the Mumbai Cricket Association agreed to all the terms and conditions laid down by IPL Chairman Ranjib Biswal, including temporarily lifting the ban on superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

“We had received letter from IPL chairman Ranjib Biswal dated May 13, and there were as many as 14 conditions. We have decided to accept all the conditions because the President (Sharad Pawar) desired that the match should be played in Mumbai only and we hope that our decision will change the heart of the governing council and the match will be played in Mumbai,” MCA vice-president Ravi Savant told reporters.

Without naming Sunil Gavaskar and Ravi Shastri, Savant also hinted that these players would support MCA’s bid to get the final back. “There are also Mumbai players who are part of the IPL governing council, who should support us and we hope they will definitely support us,” Savant added. PTI
