IPL postponed

Source:  http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/7942095.stm

We reported earlier this week that the Indian Cricket League has had to be postponed until later in the year due to the credit crunch, well now it seems that the same fate has befallen the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Indian officials have announced today that because the IPL dates (10 April – 24 May), clash with National elections in the country (16 April – 13 May), the government has said it will not have enough security officials to guarantee player safety during this time. Instead, the IPL will have to move its playing schedule (after the government refused to move its elections!) and new dates for the competition should be published shortly.
