High Court allows MI to play the first match

The Bombay High Court on Thursday permitted the inaugural Indian Premier League (IPL) match between Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiants to be held at the Wankhede Stadium on Saturday as scheduled.

A decision on the remaining 19 matches scheduled in Maharashtra has been kept pending while the matter has been posted for further hearing on April 12.

The high court ruling came on a PIL challenging the staging of IPL matches in Mumbai, Pune and Nagpur on grounds of acute water crisis in the state.
