A total of 13 matches which were to be held in Pune, Nagpur and Mumbai will now be held outside of the state. Though a bench of justices V.M. Kanade and M.S. Karnik observed that such a ruling might not solve the water crisis but water diverted from the IPL will at least assuage the thirst of the people to some extent.

So glad to hear ,Bombay high court verdict acknowledging the drought in Maharashtra n shifting IPL matches. It’s a great leap forward. — Madhur Bhandarkar (@imbhandarkar) April 13, 2016
I welcome Bombay High Court’s directive to shift #IPL matches out of Maharashtra. In fact, IPL should be shifted out of India to Canada/SA.— Devinder Sharma (@Devinder_Sharma) April 13, 2016
Shifting of IPL matches out of Maharashtra is a good step. Hope Bombay High Court also bans washing of idols in temples as it wastes water. — Eminent Intellectual (@padhalikha) April 13, 2016
Great decision by Bombay High Court. Next step would probably be to ban all cricket matches in India whenever the monsoons fail— The Bad Doctor (@DOCTORATLARGE) April 13, 2016
