IPL second leg could be held in India

The second leg of the IPL, for which Bangladesh is a standby venue, could be held in India with the organisers on Wednesday claiming that state governments want to host the matches once polling for general elections is completed. The second leg of the tournament has been set from May 1 to 12. “Pursuant to the initiative taken by the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, many State Governments have indicated that IPL matches can be conducted in their respective states,” BCCI Secretary Sanjay Patel said in a statement. “Based on the responses received so far, the BCCI believes that the Pepsi IPL 2014 can be conducted in India from the first week of May,” he added.PTI
