"First of all, I would thank BCCI and IPL for deciding to hold all the matches of this season of IPL in Mumbai and Pune. There are restrictions and bio-bubble but we hope that as the things are getting normal more and more people can be allowed to come to the stadium and see the match and cheer their favorite teams and players," said Kedar.
