Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: The all-party Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC) will write to Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Lalit Modi to assure him that there would not be any trouble from its side if the inaugural match of the third edition of IPL which was scheduled to be played in Hyderabad was gone ahead.

Amidst IPL’s reported decision to shift the venue of the match from Hyderabad to Mumbai in view of the turmoil in the State capital on account of separate Telangana agitation, the joint secretary of Hyderabad Cricket Association Venkat and another official on Monday called on JAC convenor C. Kodandaram to seek the latter’s intervention in a bid to see that the match was held here. Mr. Kodandaram told The Hindu that he promised to them that he would write to Mr. Modi on Tuesday to reconsider the decision.
