Bangalore, Feb 13 IBNS | 7 months ago

The 2014 Pepsi IPL Player auction concluded in Bangalore on Thursday and few big names, including Australian fast bowler Brett Lee, remained unsold.


Dashing Sri Lankan all-rounder Tillakaratne Dilshan, veteran Sri Lankan cricketer Mahela Jayawardena, West Indian all-rounder Marlon Samuels, Sri Lankan all-rounder Angelo Mathews and Australian fast bowler Brett Lee and all-rounder Cameron White failed to get a spot in any of the teams.

Meanwhile, the seventh edition of the cash-rich tournament might be taken out of the India due to the upcoming Lok Sabha polls this year, reports said.

The tournament might be shifted to South Africa.

"We are considering so many options. We are meeting the Home Ministry officials and the Home Minister (Sushil Kumar Shinde) to know the possible dates on which we can accommodate (the IPL) in India as far as possible. We are keen holding the matches in India. If not, South Africa is the preferred destination. But also the second and third options are open," IPL chairman Ranjib Biswal was quoted as saying to NDTV.

"What we are asking is, we have a window from April 9 to June 3. We will be speaking to the government officials in the Home Ministry. We want to hold maximum number of matches in India and if we get the green signal, probably we can hold all the matches in India," he said.

South Africa had earlier hosted the event in 2009 when it was shifted to the country.
