IPL drops New Delhi, Jaipur, Vizag venues
New Delhi: New Delhi, Jaipur and Visakhapatanam have been dropped as venues in the latest schedule for the second edition of the Indian Premier League(IPL), which is still awaiting the green signal from the Home Ministry.

In the revised schedule, submitted to the Ministry on Tuesday, these venues have been left out as the State governments could not guarantee security because of the general elections, IPL sources said.

The sources said the IPL took into consideration the security constraints of all the State governments and prepared the new schedule in such a way that it would not hinder the election process.

“We do not expect any problems now. The Ministry will consult the State governments and then get back to us,” a top IPL official said.

The multimillion-dollar League has run into rough weather because of security concerns and the Ministry has already rejected two of the IPL schedules.

The sources said the hill city of Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh would host a few matches. The organisers were also looking at Raipur in Chhattisgarh.

Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Mohali, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad will host most of the matches. The IPL has received a boost with Kolkata clarifying that it will not have any problem with the revised schedule. — PTI
