IPL 2020: Why champion wrestler is hoping for IPL's success?
Other sports organisers can consider plans on holding events, on the basis of the successful hosting of the IPL
Star Indian wrestler Bajrang Punia feels that the start of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will bring positivity among all the sports disciplines worldwide.
Punia said that if UAE manages to host the lucrative league without any hassle then other sports can also think of resuming events.
"Safety of everybody is very important. I am of the opinion that the IPL is starting in UAE and if it gets started and finished without any bad news of coronavirus, then I think other sports organisers can also plan on holding the events (with all precautions) in future," Bajrang told IANS.
On Tuesday, former world championship bronze medallist boxer Gaurav Bidhuri had also shared the same sentiment.
"Yes, it would be good for us once the IPL begins. We all will get an idea of what precautions and steps we should follow to keep everything safe in order to conduct any event in India," the Delhi-based boxer had said.
The IPL is scheduled to start from September 19 in the UAE with most teams arriving in the UAE.
Olympic-bound wrestler Bajrang is currently at his home in Sonepat. The Sports Authority of India (SAI) is hosting the men's wrestling camp in Sonepat from September 1 and Bajrang is excited to join it.
"I got to know that the women's camp is postponed. It's ok. SAI and our federation (Wrestling Federation of India) will do everything for the betterment of the athletes. I just came to my home (Sonepat) from Bengaluru where I was training. I want to join the camp here now. It will be a good opportunity to excel my skills and work hard for the Tokyo Olympics next year," he said. "Right now my focus is to win an Olympic medal for my nation."
