IBL 2 to be held in January

New Delhi, Sep 24 (IANS) Following a gap of almost two-and-half years, the second edition of the Indian Badminton League (IBL) will make a return in January, 2016.

“We have not finalised the dates yet, we are still working on it but it is likely that it will be held between the first and third week of January 2016,” Badminton Association of India (BAI) president Akhilesh Das Gupta said on Thursday.

A top BAI source revealed to IANS that the dates are likely going to be from January 2 to 17.

The first edition of the IBL was held in August 2013 following the conclusion of the World Championships after which the tournament faced administrative hurdles and could not find dates in the busy international calendar.

The Saina Nehwal-led Hyderabad Hotshots were champions in the inaugural edition held from August 14 to 31, 2013.
