We’re telling cricketing community that in future we must sever ties with nations from where terror emanates.”, Vinod Rai was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
He further added, “We’ll not have a regular IPL opening ceremony and the amount of the budget for the opening ceremony will be given to families of the victims of this terror attack.”
