IPL won’t be the same outside India: Sachin

The Indian Premier League ‘won’t be the same’ when played outside India, Sachin Tendulkar said on Monday voicing his disappointment at the BCCI’s decision to shift the Twenty20 event abroad.

Echoing the master batsman, his teammates Yuvraj Singh, Gautam Gambhir and L Balaji also expressed disappointment with the BCCI’s decision as it will deny them a chance to play in front of home crowd.

“It is disappointing that the IPL has been moved out of India. We will certainly miss playing in front of our supporters. It won’t be the same,” Tendulkar said.

“Obviously the Indian public would have liked to have the IPL played in India. Due to certain circumstances it is difficult. I’m sure the authorities must have tried, but it is not workable. That is the reason it is not in India. I guess we have no choice at this moment,” said the champion batsman.

“It is obviously going to be different. In India it is about home games and away games. Right now, looking at the itinerary, either in England or South Africa, everything is going to be an away game. It really doesn’t matter where you play everything is going to be an away game,” he said.
