No IPL matches 48 hours before polling: Modi
The Indian Premier League (IPL) was fully aware of the importance of the coming Lok Sabha elections and would not hold IPL games up to two days prior to the polling dates across the match venues, IPL chairman Lalit Modi said today.

"The IPL is fully congnizant of the importance of general elections in a country such as ours. We will go a step further to ensure that there will be no games 24 to 48 hours prior to the polling dates across the nine match venues in the country," Modi said in a statement.

Stating that the IPL was working on the schedule to ensure that there was no clash of IPL matches with the election dates, Modi said the IPL would work with the state and local authorities to ensure the smooth conduct of the April 10-May 24 Twenty20 event.

"We will announce the new reworked schedule in the next 24 hours," he added.
