John Manoj the secretary of the Hyderabad cricket association has confirmed that all the home matches of Sunrisers Hyderabad will be played at the designated venue.
And with the statement made by Manoj it marked the end of discussions and rumors that were flying high in the air of not having the IPL in Hyderabad and for this the players and supporters were really very obsessed.
"IPL is on. I just had a meeting with the police commissioner. You don't have to believe rumours," Manoj told Cricbuzz on Thursday (March 23).
The lack of payment for employees arose due to the fact that they hadn't received funds from the Board of Control for Cricket in India. Manoj stated that this issue is also in the process of being sorted.
The Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad will host the opening ceremony of the tenth edition of IPL, on April 5, followed by the tournament opener between holders Sunrisers and last season's runners-up Royal Challengers Bangalore.
