Sri Lanka Cricket offers BCCI to host the remaining IPL 2021

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has offered the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to host the remaining Indian Premier League (IPL) matches in September.

IPL was earlier suspended indefinitely due to rising coronavirus cases in the league. Since then, several organisations have shown their keenness to host the cash-rich league. SLC also has come forward with their proposal. Last year, the SLC had shown interest in the competition, but the BCCI went ahead with UAE.

In an interview with the Deccan Chronicle, SLC chief of the managing committee, Arjuna de Silva, said that they could ‘certainly provide a window’ to have the league in September.

“Yes, we can certainly provide a window to host the IPL in the month of September. We hear the UAE (United Arab Emirates) is their one option but Sri Lanka can not be ignored for all reasons.”

“We are planning to host the Lanka Premier League (LPL) in July-August and the grounds and other infrastructure will be ready for the IPL in September.”

The biggest hassle for BCCI is to find a slot that can accommodate the remaining part of the league. BCCI President Saurav Ganguly, recently cleared the board will talk with other committees to see if a window can be made available for completing the remaining matches before the T20 World Cup. He also stated that the board could face INR 2500 crore loss if the league is not concluded.

Strangely enough, there are no Sri Lankan players in the IPL. Only Muttiah Muralitharan, Mahela Jayawardene and Kumara Sangakkara are part of the tournament, that too, as a member of the coaching staff.

It is yet to be decided if the league can be completed later this year, and also if it is conducted will the BCCI take the offer of SLC. According to the reports, the Indian board is considering staging the remaining part of the league in the UAE.

“Pure bliss” – Fans react as Suresh Raina shares ‘Positive Vibes’ with a smiling pic

Former Indian cricketer Suresh Raina was recently seen in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, which has been postponed due to rising COVID-19 cases among different IPL franchises. The left-handed batsman re-joined his team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) as he had opted himself out from the previous season, citing personal reasons.

Raina started his IPL 2021 journey on a high note as he smashed a half-century in the very first game for CSK. He played seven games for the ‘Yellow Army’, scoring 123 runs before BCCI suspended the fourteenth season of the cash-rich league.

Just like other cricketers, Raina has returned home and spending quality time with his family. In the meantime, the 34-year-old shared a picture of himself having a laugh in order to spread positivity. Raina urged people to find happiness in the little things around them and take some time off to enjoy with their loved ones.

“Find happiness in the little things around you. Always be grateful! Take some time off & enjoy with your loved ones. Have a happy & safe weekend, you all #PositiveVibes,” Raina captioned the image on Twitter.

Raina’s message was well-received by fans as they came up with some heartwarming replies for CSK’s backbone. A fan asked Raina to keep the smile always with him.

“This smile on yours. Pure bliss. Keep this smile always with you champ, Happy to see you like this.”

Another fan mentioned how the picture of the CSK star makes her happy. “Happy to see you. I miss you, but this picture makes me happy. Stay safe, @ImRaina Take care.”

One user explained that Raina and other CSK members made him happy when the IPL 2021 was on. “Watching you guys playing was my happiness.”
