There could be Two IPL tournaments in a year

#1
The success of Indian Premier League in South Africa has given organisers of the Twenty20 a boast to organize IPL twice a year. Orgainsers are also hopeful of positive response to IPL like South Africa in other countries.

IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi said that the IPL will be based in India, but the second season we are planning gives us the chance to see if a market exists and we are seriously looking at what we can do with it.

Modi said: "We have turned the challenges and adversities in moving to South Africa into an opportunity. It is fans who determine if you are successful or not and they have come out in force here. It has shown that the tournament can be in any region, in any country. This opens up many different opportunities for us."[Image: lalit%20modi_0.jpg]

"America throws up challenges but the format we have developed works. It is an opportunity for families to spend a day out. Apart from watching great cricket they have an enjoyable evening out. That will work anywhere," he said.

"Before this tournament we did not know if we could do it. But we do know now. We have to satisfy an appetite across the world and build a fan base across the world."

He added: "We will talk to the England and Wales Cricket Board, and South Africa are natural allies who want us to come back every year. The public and the boards want us but it is not realistic to come back to the same place every year."
