“Yes, it will lift the mood of the country, for sure.

Dhumal also said that IPL also employs a lot of people which is business. He also said the tournament will boost the economy in the country which has incurred losses during the lockdown.

“It’s not just about entertainment – it’s about the business it gets and the employment it generates across many sectors. It will boost the economy in many sectors which are dependent on our tournaments. And obviously, if IPL happens, player safety would be paramount,” he added.
