The IPL Governing Council members had an informal discussion on Sunday about the likely venue for the seventh edition of the T20 league in 2014.
The discussions were primarily based on the fact that India will be going for general elections next year and it would be difficult for the State governments to deploy security for the matches.
“Although our first preference is certainly India, keeping in mind the sponsors and cricket lovers, if the general election dates clash with the IPL matches, then we have no option but to think of other alternatives,” said a BCCI official.
If there is a partial shift, Sri Lanka could be in line to host a few matches. — PTI
