Although the Bombay High Court’s decision of shifting IPL matches from Maharashtra after April 31 would not affect the Gujarat Lions, the team owner Keshav Bansal, was in a spot of bother too when drought-related protests sprouted in Rajkot a few days ago.

“It does raise a concern at some point of time when suddenly such issues come up.

“I mean, just because the protest was in Maharashtra, you can’t copy them in some other state. You can’t co-relate the two (issues). It’s part of India’s eco-system. Luckily, it (drought issue) was handled maturely (in Rajkot),” Bansal told mid-day during an interaction on Saturday.
