Dropped Delhi may host IPL matches: DDCA
Advertisement
#1
Contrary to reports that Delhi has been dropped as a venue for the Indian Premier League (IPL), Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) president Arun Jaitley on Wednesday said that the city might host a few games of the Twenty20 event's second edition.

"Some matches could still be worked out as per the new schedule sent to the Home Ministry. We are in constant touch with Chief Minister Shiela Dikshit and police authorities," Jaitley told reporters in New Delhi.

"I am in constant touch with the authorities and I am hopeful that some matches will be played in Delhi. May be some matches presently planned for Gujarat could be shifted to Delhi. We have proposed new dates for matches in Delhi only after May 6," he added.

Sources said while Dikshit had given her nod to the hosting of the matches, the police apparently declined to give the green signal citing lack of security forces due to the upcoming general elections.

Sources said the police authorities had suggested feasible dates only after the counting of votes.

However, Union Home Minster P Chidambaram said a decision on the fate of the second edition of the event would be taken soon after the Ministry received feedback from the concerned state governments on the revised schedule.
