New Delhi: Newly appointed Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) interim president Sunil Gavaskar is confident that the 2014 Indian Premier League (IPL) will be successful.
Gavaskar's statement comes a day after the Supreme Court virtually split the BCCI and named the legendary batsman and senior board vice president Shivlal Yadav as interim heads in place of the tainted incumbent president N Srinivasan.
"I had a meeting with IPL chairman Ranjib Biswal and the management staff in Dubai earlier on Saturday.
They briefed me on the various aspects related to the IPL 2014 and updated me on the current status of this year's season which will commence April 16 in the United Arab Emirates.
I am confident that the upcoming season of the IPL will be a successful one," Gavaskar said.
