After much deliberations and speculations of the Indian Premier League matches being held outside India because of the forthcoming elections, it has now been decided that the IPL will be held in India itself. The IPL Governing council and the Supreme Court appointed CoA have decided that the 12th edition of the IPL will be held in India. The tournament is scheduled to commence on March 23. This announcement by the BCCI puts to rest all doubts about the IPL being played at South Africa.
A meeting was held at New Delhi by the CoA when it was finalized that this cash rich tournament will be played in India. The final dates and venues are expected to be fixed only after the General Election dates are announced.
