Modi set to tour London and South Africa

Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi is all set to leave the country and finalise the host nation for the second edition of the Twenty20 League which has been shifted overseas.

The IPL chief has kept open his option of going both to South Africa and England.

"Booked (for) both places", Modi said when queried whether he was leaving on Monday night or any time soon for London or South Africa to hold discussions with the officials of the cricket boards there.

Modi is scheduled to be accompanied by IPL CEO Sundar Raman and Tournament Director Dhiraj Malhotra, according to sources.

According to reports, Modi was scheduled to depart for England on Monday to hold discussions with the ECB officials on Tuesday.

England appears to be the front runner for relocating the highly successful league temporarily this year on account of logistics.

"England is a very attractive venue. It is easy to access from India and there is a large Asian community to tap into", Modi has told The Daily Telegraph.
