IPL 2013 in J&K







Pin It



Union Home Ministry, India, is thinking of an idea to hold IPL cricket matches in Jammu and Kashmir to send a message that the state is returning to normalcy. This is a part of its confidence building measures in the state.

sher e kashmir stadium IPL 2013 in J&KThe issue has been taken up with the BCCI to hold IPL T 20 matches in Kashmir in the next summer. The ministry had attempted earlier but it was too late as the IPL schedule was already fixed.

The Omar Abdullah government and the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association had also expressed desire last year for having their own team for the IPL T20 tournament but it has failed to fructify so far.

It is learnt from a news that the state association is also laying down turf and outfield in Sher-i-Kashmir Cricket Stadium so that they are well prepared to hold matches of international standards.

The last international cricket match held in the Sher-e-Kashmir stadium, Srinagar was a one-dayer, between India and Australia, played way back on September 9, 1986.

A positive mood indeed.
