Cricket in India safe, but IPL must be rescheduled: PC

#1
Union Home Minister P Chidambaram has said that the government will help authorities in organising the Indian Premier League but rescheduling of matches is unavoidable.

"Cricket in India is completely safe, but dates for IPL need to be rescheduled," said Chidambaram.

The Union Home Minister is in Hyderabad for a two-hour review meeting on the security situation in Andhra Pradesh, with Chief Minister Y S R Reddy, state home minister and senior police officers.

The meeting takes place in the backdrop of concerns over the election and IPL dates clashing and whether foolproof security can be provided to both.

Sources say that the Home Ministry will put forward a suggestion to the IPL organisers to crunch the total number of matches. So, lesser venues would mean less travelling.

They will also suggest dividing the eight teams into two groups and conduct the tournament. The police can then look at the possibility of providing security.
