After Sri Lanka Cricket Players' Association expressed concerns over ongoing

attacks against Sri Lankan nationals in Tamil Nadu, IPL commissioner Rajiv Shukla said that there is no threat to the upcoming mega-tournament, scheduled to commence from April 3rd.


Earlier, SLCPA has written to the Federation of International Cricketers' Association to assess the safety of its players during the tournament.


At least two Buddhist monks came under attack in two separate incidents since Sunday.


Around 11 Sri Lankan players including Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene and Lasith Malinga are part of various IPL franchises.


Some of them represent Chennai Super Kings who are based in the state where the recent anti-Sri Lankan attacks have happened.
