IPL governing council meeting likely on Aug 2

New Delhi: The governing council of the Indian Premier League is likely to meet on August 2 to give a final shape to the schedule and discuss other arrangements for the eagerly-awaited event to be held in the UAE.

The tournament, forced out of the country due to the raging COVID-19 pandemic, will be held from September 19 to November 8.

“The IPL governing council is likely to meet on August 1. It is expected that franchises will be handed the SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) after the meeting,” a senior BCCI official told on the condition of anonymity.

The meeting, expected to be attended by top BCCI brass, including President Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah, would address concerns of various stakeholders.

The tenures of both Ganguly and Shah are over but the two have sought a relaxation in the Lodha Committee-recommended cooling off norms from the Supreme Court, which will hear the matter on August 17.
