BCCI thanks ECB

Special Correspondent

MUMBAI: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has thanked the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for its readiness to be a venue for the IPL.

Both have explained that logistical issues, climate and permanent floodlights made South Africa a more practical choice in the timescale available.

David Collier, the ECB chief executive, said: “We wish the IPL every success in South Africa and are grateful for the letter of thanks we have received from the BCCI for the assistance and support we offered to the IPL.

“However we all recognised the difficulties and logistical issues involved in areas such as security when the G20 is meeting in the UK next week and the climatic challenges.

ECB is pleased that a number of nations offered to support the IPL and we do believe the event will be a great success in South Africa.”
