Due to the security concerns posed by the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the seventh edition of the high-profile Indian Premier League could be shifted to South Africa.
 
Reportedly, the dates of the event are clashing with the event. 
 
The IPL authorities will be meeting home ministry officials next week and a final decision on the venue and the exact schedule is expected to be taken in the coming 10 days. The general elections are scheduled to be held in April-May.
 
“We are considering many options. We are meeting the home ministry officials and the home minister (Sushilkumar Shinde) to know the possible dates on which we can accommodate (the IPL) in India as far as possible, we are keen on holding the matches in India. If not, South Africa is the preferred destination. But we have second and third options too,” IPL chairman Ranjib Biswal said.
