Karnataka declines to host IPL till May 4
What looked like a simple affair after the grand success of its inaugural edition, the Indian Premier League is struggling in its second year for a smooth take off.

A day after Union Home Ministry rejected the new IPL schedule and asked the organisers to re-work on it, the tournament got another blow as Bangalore police declined to provide any security before May 4.

Karnataka Home Minister VS Acharya said that the state was ready for IPL between May 4 and May 14. During this period, the state would provide security even without the central security help.

The poll dates in the state are on April 23 and 30 and the counting of votes will take place on May 16.

However, the organizers are trying their best to have the T20 event on schedule with minor changes. They are keen to go ahead with the tournament, as it's not possible to postpone the dates as the cramped international cricket calendar does not allow it.

IPL chief Lalit Modi was in Delhi on Saturday to try and salvage the high-profile event that has thousands of crore riding on it.

IPL authorities said they were ready with the revised schedule. According to them, the third schedule was ready for the tournament that's less than a month away.
