IPL Revises Schedule

IPLThe Indian Premier League schedule has been revised due to the fact that the dates of IPL matches may clash with the Polling dates that occurs on May. So this may cause a problem in security arrangements both for polling centres and IPL matches.

So IPL  has sent a  revised schedule for the Indian Premier League cricket tournament, but the central government is still deciding what to do. It wishes to first discuss the matter with states where both polls and the matches are scheduled.

This is even though IPL organisers have told the Union home ministry they do not require any central forces for security during the matches. The ministry has passed on the new IPL schedule to the states and is awaiting their response. The new schedule maintains the duration of the Twenty20 format tournament from April 10 to May 24, but with changes on match dates that fall on April 16, 23, 30 and May 7 and 13. This ensures no matches are held in cities on election days.

New Delhi, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad are the venues. Though the Central Government of India asked to postpone the tournament, the IPL officials clearly told there is no window open expect for April and May. Also there is a World Cup starting on the first of June,  referring to the Twenty20 World Cup in England from June 5-21. The league, involving many international players, has been thrust into the security spotlight in the wake of Tuesday’s terrorist attack on Sri Lankan players in Pakistan, which left seven Pakistanis dead.

Foreign players are raising concerns over travelling to the sub-continent. Malhotra said security had been assessed and league officials would talk to players and national boards to allay safety fears. They also emphasised the fact that India is safe place to play Cricket and thereseems to be no problem with security as far as India is concerned.
