Mumbai: The IPL governing council on Saturday held a meeting to take stock of what happened in the UAE leg. Sunil Gavaskar, the interim BCCI president for IPL affairs, said he wanted the people to remember this IPL only for cricket.
“The human nature being what it is, nobody can give any guarantees. We have put some measures in place and certainly the way the UAE leg went, it has given us some confidence… if it carries on the same way we will have this India-leg also free from any off-field controversies.
“That is what we are hoping for. I believe that the presence of the integrity officers is evidently a big plus. Now the integrity officer travels with every team. So the younger player or the most susceptible sometimes, is the uninitiated player. We have given them all the education that is necessary,” Gavaskar said.
