New Delhi: The BCCI has submitted a revised schedule of the Indian Premier League to the Home Ministry.

BCCI announced new schedule in the wake of security concerns after the Lahore terror attack.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has been uncomfortable with the IPL dates clashing with the poll schedule.

The Ministry had earlier asked the DGPs of all host states if they could provide additional security because private security is not expected to be a foolproof replacement.

The Punjab government said that they'll provide security for the IPL matches only if the schedule is changed.

Bengal had demanded a complete change in the IPL calendar. They wanted all matches in Kolkata to be over before April 30.
