Few matches of the IPL tournament to be played in Sri lanka.

The next season of the Indian Premier League or at least some matches of the T20 tournament — may be played outside India.


A top cricket board official said Sri Lanka or Bangladesh, or both, could be the likely host.


The reason is Lok Sabha elections and the current Lok Sabha’s term ends in May 2014, and if the election is not brought forward, the IPL will coincide with campaigning and voting, and severely stretch security forces.


The BCCI has begun to prepare for a possible overlap with the IPL, which is played in April and May.
