Maharashtra drought: Bombay HC orders BCCI to shift all IPL 2016 matches after April 30

New Delhi: The Bombay High Court has advised the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday to shift all the remaining Indian Premier League matches scheduled in Maharashtra on and after April 30 onwards to another state.

The Bombay HC observed that shifting of IPL matches will not be solving the problem, but if water is diverted to drought hit areas problem can be solved to some extent.

This comes as a big blow for the BCCI as a total of 13 matches are to be shifted out of the state.
