GUWAHATI: In a good news for cricket enthusiasts, Guwahati is set to host two Indian Premier League (IPL) matches in its 2020 edition at Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati.

The decision was taken at a meeting held between IMG-Reliance (IMG-R), the parent body of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Rajasthan Royals and Assam Cricket Association (ACA).

Taking to the Twitter handle, Assam Finance Minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma wrote, "It is a moment of joy for us as @rajasthanroyals will play 2 matches in #IPL's next season in #Guwahati. I appreciate Sri @JayShah for this great initiative for the people of #NorthEastIndia. May the spirit of sports keep us united forever."

Earlier, Rajasthan requested a change of their second home from Ahmedabad to Guwahati. Meanwhile a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed by three petitioners at the Jaipur bench of Rajasthan High Court, claiming that shifting of matches outside Jaipur “would be disrespectful to the state.”

People would definitely enjoy the IPL matches of Rajasthan Royals in Guwahati because local boy Riyan Parag is a star middle-order batsman of the team.
