BCCI submits revised IPL itinerary
The BCCI has sent a new schedule of the Indian Premier League to the Home Ministry.
Sources have told CNN-IBN that the BCCI has sent the new schedule in the wake of security concerns after the Lahore terror attack.
The Ministry of Home Affairs has been uncomfortable with the IPL dates clashing with the poll schedule.
The Ministry had earlier asked the DGPs of all host states if they could provide additional security because private security is not expected to be a foolproof replacement.
The Punjab government said that they'll provide security for the IPL matches only if the schedule is changed.
Bengal had demanded a complete change in the IPL calendar. They wanted all matches in Kolkata to be over before April 30.
