IPL revised schedule to be sent to state govts: Home Ministry

#1
New Delhi, Mar 9 (PTI) The Indian Premier League's revised schedule, expected to be submitted to the Home Ministry tomorrow, will be sent to the concerned state governments for their feedback before a final decision is taken.

The IPL coincides with the general elections in the country and the organisers of the cash-rich league have been forced to revamp the schedule to avoid matches on polling days in the host cities.

"Any revised schedule received from the IPL will be sent to to the concerned state governments for their comments," a Home Ministry spokesman said.

Home Minister P Chidambaram had earlier stated that some re-scheduling of IPL matches "seems unavoidable", as he was trying his best to ensure that the second edition of the event is held smoothly.

The 45-day extravaganza begins on April 10 and the 60 matches to be played among eight teams and spread over eight cities will end on May 24.

The IPL organisers have conveyed to the Home Ministry that they do not require any central forces for the security. PTI
