Terror: Shane Warne wants IPL shifted to South Africa
Thursday, 18th February 2010
Rajasthan Royals’ captain Shane Warne is concerned about the safety of cricketers in wake of threats by terror groups and suggested that IPL-III be held in South Africa again if these threats are credible.
“The threats of the past 24 hours have certainly got me thinking twice and is of deep concern to athletes across several sports,” Warne said.
“If the threats are proven to be real, then organisers of the IPL may look at moving the tournament. We moved it last year at short notice (to South Africa), so it can be done. There is no way organisers will risk the safety of players and officials,” he added.
