! IPL 2009 not to be held in India!! - 03-22-2009, 03:12 PM

With the state governments playing tough on sparing forces for security, the Indian Premier League was on Sunday shifted to another country amid speculation that England or South Africa would be the venue for the second edition of the high-profile event.

The decision to shift the Twenty20 tournament out of the country was taken at the BCCI's emergency Working Committee meeting in Mumbai to take a final call on the cash-rich event which had run into rough weather because of security apprehensions.

"Because of the attitude of the government that they are not ready to spare security forces for the cricket tournament... we are forced to take the decision to move the event out of India," BCCI president Shashank Manohar told a press conference.

"So the Board has decided to take the tournament out of the country. We are in discussion with other Boards who are willing to host the event. I apologise to the people of India for moving the tournament out," Manohar said.

"But we're are going ahead with the event so that they can at least watch the event on television," Mahohar added. The BCCI President said venue would be decided in next couple of days.

"We are in discussion with other boards and will decide the venue in next 2-3 days," he said.

IPL Commissioner and Chairman Lalit Modi, who was also at the press conference, said the number of matches, format and timing of the event will remain unchanged and the organisers would not tinker with the "integrity of the tournament".

"Dates and timings of the matches will remain the same. The Indian audiences can watch the matches at 4 pm and 8 pm IST as they did in the inaugural season," Modi said.

"Revenue cannot be an issue, the 59-match tournament will remain as 59-match tournament. The issue is the integrity of the tournament.

"We want to ensure the quality which we deliver and it cannot be compromised. We have to deliver the world standard event," he said.

Manohar also expressed his displeasure at the state governments' attitude, saying Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra Government changed there stance at the last moment.

"The AP government revoked its earlier permission... and Maharashtra Chief Minister wrote a letter that we can't host matches in that state until May 13. We had scheduled 18 matches for Maharashtra," he said.

Asked if franchise were also taken into the confidence before taking the decision, Manohar said "the franchise would want the tournament to go ahead".

All the other countries have fallen to a trap called the IPL which was meant to save the future of indian cricket after they got humiliated at the 2007 world cup...its only the Indian team which has benifitted from this as a string of new players got drafted into the team after performing in the IPL such as yusuf pathan,Pragyan Ojha & Gambhir
Its these players who were responsible for the series loss to india earlier this year.

Its also quite unfortunate that our cricketers preffered to play in this tourney rather than tour England in april due to their greed of cold hard cash by falling in to this trap meant for rewamping indian cricket..

its further unfortunate that they even threatened to even retire from international cricket had the SL cricket board went through the English tour as planned before..
