KPL to go on as per original schedule

Only on Wednesday, the KSCA was forced to cancel matches on Friday and Saturday in view of security concerns. But following the SC diktat on Thursday, the KSCA officials, the eight KPL team representatives and the TV production company held a meeting here on Thursday evening and decided to conduct the matches as planned earlier, all at the Chinnaswamy stadium.

The semifinals are tentatively scheduled for September 29, but the situation will be reviewed a day or two before that date. The schedule has undergone several revisions, first following the incessant rains that forced the cancellation of the matches in Manipal, and then after the matches in Hubli were shifted due to security reaons.

Revised schedule (all matches at Chinnaswamy stadium)

Sept 24: Provident Bangalore vs Malnad Gladiators (2.45 pm); Bangalore Brigadiers vs Davangere Diamonds (6.30 pm).

Sept 25: Belagavi Panthers vs Mysore Maharaajas (2.45 pm); Bangalore Brigadiers vs Mangalore United (6.30 pm).

Sept 26: Provident Bangalore vs Mysore Maharaajas (2.45 pm); Bijapur Bulls vs Davangere Diamonds (6.30 pm).

Sept 27: Malnad Gladiators vs Bangalore Brigadiers (2.45 pm); Belagavi Panthers vs Mangalore United (6.30 pm).

Sept 28: Mysore Maharaajas vs Shamanur Davangere Diamonds (11.00 am); Bijapur Bulls vs Bangalore Brigadiers (2.45 pm); Provident Bangalore vs Belagavi Panthers (6.30 pm).
