IPL's new schedule under stake till friday

A decision on whether the Indian Premier League can go ahead with a revised schedule would be taken after the Central government discusses the matter with the host states and the Election Commission.The IPL organisers have conveyed to the home ministry that they do not require any central forces for the security.The ripples of the shocking terror attack in Lahore was felt back home with the Home Minister P Chidambaram announced that it is impossible to have a high profile event like IPL during the election.Cancelling the event would mean incurring mind-boggling money so that would obviously be the last option for the organisers.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) governing committee met on Wednesday and worked out a latest schedule, which has been forwarded to the Home Ministry for consideration. A absolute word on it is predictable by Friday.
According to the present schedule, 24 Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket matches clash with the elections. Indian Premier League (IPL) is worried that if the Home Ministry hinders them from going in advance, the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament may not take place this year given the busy international calendar of the teams.
The states where the IPL matches are scheduled to be held are Delhi, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.

Lets hope for the best.
