Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Thursday permitted the inaugural Indian Premier League (IPL) match between Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiants to be held at the Wankhede Stadium here on Saturday as scheduled.
 
A decision on the remaining 19 matches scheduled in Maharashtra has been kept pending while the matter has been posted for further hearing on April 12.
 
 
The high court ruling came on a PIL challenging the staging of IPL matches in Mumbai, Pune and Nagpur on grounds of acute water crisis in the state. 
 
Earlier on Wednesday, the Bombay High Court pulled up the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) and asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to shift the venue of the IPL matches from drought-hit areas of the state.
