Board of Control for Cricket in India‘s (BCCI) secretary Sanjay Patel was of the opinion that it is premature to decide on the venue for Indian Premier League (IPL).


“We have not yet decided about the venue for the IPL. We have been thinking over United Arab Emirates (UAE); Bangladesh, Sri Lanka are also interested. South African president told me personally about it,” as said by Patel in press conference.


He concluded, “But we will see. It is not a question of asking the government of India at the moment and to take any names that are coming out will be a premature thing.”
