Key points stated by the BCCI to Bombay HC in relation to Maharashtra drought

New Delhi: Here are the key points the BCCI has stated to the Bombay High Court against the plea of shifting the Indian Premier League out of drought-hit Maharashtra.

The Bombay High Court will take a final decision today in connection with moving the cash-rich league out of the state or not.

# BCCI has informed the court that, they will try to shift matches in Nagpur somewhere else.

# BCCI also argued against the plea saying that transferring matches would have been possible if it was taken a month back.

# The Mumbai and Pune franchise will donate Rs.5 crore each towards the CM's drought relief fund.

# Usage of sewage water and not tank water for watering the pitches.

# BCCI is ready to supply 64 lakh litres of un-potable water to drought affected areas in Maharashtra.

# RWITC has given undertaking about supply of required recycled sewage water for Mumbai and Pune stadiums.

# BCCI has also stated that the board will provide equivalent amount of water used for the Indian Premier League.

#Transferring IPL matches will be a logistical nightmare.

# BCCI questioned that how many 5-star hotels and pools are closed owing to the crisis in the state?
