IPL Changed To International Premier League

23 Mar

IPL is no more indian Premier League as the second season of ipl has been decided to move out of india.England and south africa have accepted to host the ipl league.

Shashank Manohar, the BCCI president said that the venue for the tournament has been changed because the government didnot want to take chances with the security after the attack by gunmen on Sri Lankan cricketers in Lahore.

The ipl commissioner Lalit Modi tried to convince the home Ministry about the security concerns but as the ipl league clashes with the lok Sabha elections in india the government is more concerned about it rather than cricket which just comes under entertainment.

But modi had different plans and he was more concerned about the franchises and broadcasters and decided to move ipl out of india.He was clear that a lot of money was invested in this and could not afford to lose so much.

The ECB said that they have got a request from bcci and they are examining about hosting the tournament.Manohar also said that they were helpless about this issue as the indian government didnot help them with this they were forced to take this decision and said his apology to the people of India for not being able to hold the event in India.

Even though the reasons that they put in front for changing the venue is acceptable it is a big disappointment for the cricket fans when the players representing their state play in foreign soil.
