Ahmedabad:The Indian Premier League (IPL) is willing to organise two matches of this season's T20 Championship in Ahmedabad, provided the Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA) gets clearance from the state government.
"We have received an email from IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi who has asked us if two of the matches for this season could be held in Ahmedabad after the Lok Sabha elections in the state," GCA President Narhari Amin told PTI.
"Modi has asked to get necessary government clearance for organising the matches. We have faxed a copy of the email to the Chief Minister along with a request letter to allow IPL matches in Ahmedabad," Amin said.
Doubts had been raised over the second edition of the IPL in wake of the deadly terror attack on the Sri Lankan team in Lahore and the general elections which coincide with the league that starts on April 10 and concludes on May 24.
The five-phased Lok Sabha elections are scheduled to be held between April 16 and May 13.
However, following talks with the Central Government over security issues, IPL chief Modi had declared that the T20 Championship will be held with a few modifications in the schedule.
