Mumbai, Apr 4 (IBNS): The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday said Indian Premier League (IPL) side Rajasthan Royals (RR) has indicated to the Indian cricket board that the team is 'happy' to play their four home matches of the India leg of the 2014 season at Ahmedabad.
"The Rajasthan Royals have indicated to the BCCI that they are happy to play their four home matches of the India leg of the 2014 season, at Ahmedabad, to avoid any uncertainty to their home matches. KXIP and CSK will be playing some of their home matches outside Mohali and Chennai respectively, due to the non-availability of their home venue, for a large portion of May 2014.IPL will continue to look at as many venues as possible to play the tournament in forthcoming seasons," BCCI Secretary Sanjay Patel said in a statement.
"Hosting IPL involves elaborate planning on several fronts, logistics included. It is critical that there is surety on the availability of the match venues, for a tournament of this magnitude. The BCCI has worked with various franchises and stakeholders to get confirmations to host matches in the cities," he said.
The first half of the cash-rick tournament will be played in UAE from Apr 16.
The second phase of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) will be played in India from May 2.
