IPL Chairman and Commissioner Lalit Modi said that the decision on the fate of the second edition of the lucrative Twenty League is still awaited.

IPL Chairman and Commissioner Lalit Modi on Wednesday said that the decision on the fate of the second edition of the lucrative Twenty20 League was still awaited, as the Home Ministry had not taken any decision yet.

Earlier in the day, Union Home Minster P Chidambaram said a decision would be taken soon after the Ministry received feedback from the concerned state governments on the revised schedule.

Desperate to get the cash-rich league on track, the IPL's top brass held a series of meetings since Monday and submitted a reworked schedule to the Home Ministry on Tuesday. The new schedule has now taken into account the reservations and security constraints of the states hosting the matches.
