IPL headed to South Africa?

Mumbai: The second season of the IPL which was shifted from India due to security reasons could take place in South Africa.

IPL chairman Lalit Modi has flown to South Africa, though he is also scheduled to fly to England later on. Modi says the big worry with England is the threat of rain disrupting matches.

The IPL runs from 10th April to 24th May. However the real reason for the change could be that South Africa is far more willing to lay out the red carpet for the IPL in terms of venues and government support.

The Indian government rejected another proposal from IPL organisers this week, insisting security forces would be unable to cover both the cricket and national elections.
