India Cricket Body Plans to Hold Tournament Overseas, PTI Says

March 22 (Bloomberg) -- India’s cricket body plans to hold the Indian Premier League tournament overseas, the Press Trust of India reported, citing Shashank Manohar, president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

The country where the Twenty20 cricket tournament will be held is to be decided in two or three days, the Press Trust said.

India earlier this month had asked the Indian Premier League to redraw its cricket match schedule because of security concerns as it coincided with the national and state elections. Elections will be held in five phases between April and May.

The Indian Premier League tournament, a shorter version of the game spread over about three hours, was first held in India last year.
