The second half has been tentatively kept in Bangladesh but could be held in India if the BCCI manages to get the government's clearance. For the period from May 1 to 12, BCCI has approached the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, seeking permission to play IPL matches in India in cities where the polling has concluded in the respective state.
"BCCI is extremely conscious of the various complexities involved, but hopes for a favorable consideration. BCCI will abide by the decision of the authorities in this regard. If it is not possible to play in India during this period, IPL matches will be held in Bangladesh and BCCI is thankful to the Bangladesh Cricket Board and the government of Bangladesh for their support," the Board said. But there is no ambiguity for the final leg, which will be held in the country.
From May 13 (once polling has concluded in all states), the remaining league matches plus the Playoffs will be played in India. There will be no matches scheduled on the counting day of May 16. BCCI will take the advice of the authorities if any further restrictions are required around the counting day. (PTI)
