IPL deal done: Lalit Modi, S Africa official to freeze venues

met Cricket South Africa CEO Gerald Majola at an undisclosed venue this afternoon to discuss the possibility of hosting the second edition of the Twenty20 event here
TV reports said that the IPL deal is almost done and South Africa may lap up IPL 2009. TV reports indicated that the S Africa official and Lalit Modi are soon to freeze on the venues for IPL -2.

"Cricket South Africa's CEO, Gerald Majola, is due to meet with the Indian Premier League commissioner, Lalit Modi, in South Africa this afternoon at an undisclosed venue to discuss IPL hosting issues," the CSA said in a statement early in the day.

The outcome of the meeting would be conveyed later, the cricket board said.
According to sources, Modi will check out the possibility of hosting the event here after the government back home had an issue with the dates of the tournament which clash with the Lok Sabha elections.

Modi is expected to leave Johannesburg for London this evening. He is expected to hold talks with the England and Wales Cricket Board there, exploring the possibility of hosting the league there.

South Africa, however, has an edge over England as a potential host of the cash-rich event because of the good weather in the April-May period.
