After a vital meeting regarding the upcoming version of the IPL, the BCCI and the Maharashtra government have decided to permit 25% crowd capacity for the first phase of the IPL 2022 from March 26th to April 15th.
According to a source, “A decision to increase the crowd capacity for the second phase will be taken later, depending on the COVID situation.”
On Wednesday, Aaditya Thackeray, the minister for tourism and environment in the state government, and Maharashtra guardian minister Eknath Shinde organized a meeting with BCCI’s acting CEO Hemang Amin and imperative officials of the Mumbai Cricket Association at the Sahyadri Guest House in Malabar Hill concerning the arrangements for the tournament.
“To ensure the smooth flow of the @IPL, Minister @mieknathshindeji and I conducted a joint meeting of IPL, @BCCI with officers of Police and Municipal Corporations of Mumbai, Thane, Navi Mumbai,” Thackeray tweeted.
In another couple of tweets, he cited: “For Pune, the meeting will be held soon, proposed to be chaired by DCM sir to ensure that the tournament is successfully carried out in all our city venues.”
“IPL coming to Maharashtra ensures that the games aren’t played overseas. This is a huge boost for the country, as well as Maharashtra in terms of economy, morale and for the passion of cricket fans.”
