“The UAE has offered to have the IPL if we need them to. But at this moment when there is no global travel, there is no doubt of accepting an approach that,”
said BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal.
“The wellbeing and security of players and all members is our need. Right now, the whole world travel has halted, so there is nothing we can choose at this stage,” he added.
