The date for the Indian Premier League (IPL) governing council meeting is still to be decided. In the meeting, the Chinese based sponsorships will be over viewed and decision will be taken.
The main issue rises over Vivo, China’s mobile company, which represents IPL. Recently, 20 Indian soldiers have been killed by China military as a consequence of cross-border war. Subsequently, India have banned twenty China apps including TikTok. The sources said that Vivo will no more be a sponsor for IPL.
IPL governing council meeting date yet to be decided
“Taking note of the border skirmish that resulted in the martyrdom of our brave jawans, the IPL Governing Council has convened a meeting next week to review IPL’s various sponsorship deals,” the tweet read.
However, along with sponsorship decisions, the decision for tentative dates rescheduling the T20 cash-rich league will also be taken. The decision will be taken which will be in favour of India’s harmony.
“No date has been decided as yet for the IPL governing council meeting, we have to work on other issues regarding IPL. A decision will be taken which will be in the best interest of cricket and the country,” a source was quoted as saying by Times Now.
“It will be a GC meeting and nothing else. Apart from reviewing sponsorships, the possibility of IPL this year will also be discussed,” the source added.
Earlier, it was decided that the cash-rich league will be played by 29th March but the decision is still hanging by a thread amidst the rising Coronavirus cases. Also, the boxing-day test match is in fear as Victoria has developed 75 positive cases.
