"Let me assure each and everyone concerned with the tournament, that we will leave no stone unturned to provide our cricketers, fans and stakeholders alike the best security arrangements," Modi was quoted on official IPL Web site.

"We are working in close conjunction with the Indian government, the State governments and franchisees for the safe and successful conduct of the tournament in 2009."

The eight-team tournament, which runs for six-weeks from April 10 to May 24, has attracted many of the leading players in world cricket.

I hope our players will pull out.

My worry is pro ltte groups. Our players will find it really hard to play in Chennai. Modi can say like this. If terrorist carried out a attack similar to that of Mumbai.
I am big fan of IPL. IPL is simply high class entertainment. But my heart says it's better if our players pull out.

Revised IPL schedule to be announced on Tuesday

The Indian Premier League (IPL) will announce its revised schedule for the second session of the tournament on Tuesday.

IPL commissioner Lalit Modi will announce the schedule in Mumbai.

The IPL commissioner has tried to avoid a clash with polling dates.

The rescheduling follows after the intervention from the home ministry and apprehensions of the various state governments over the dates clashing with the general elections.

Modi has earlier assured the cricket fans that IPL was on and there was no question of the IPL moving to a foreign country.

Various media reports had claimed that the UAE and some Western countries are ready to host the cash-rich Twenty20 event.

Modi also thanked Home Minister P. Chidambaram for receiving assurances on security.

Earlier, the Home Ministry had urged the IPL to alter the dates as they were clashing with the election schedule. (ANI)

Pietersen considering pulling out of IPL

ONDON, March 8 (Reuters) - Former England captain Kevin Pietersen is considering pulling out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Twenty20 tournament after last week's militant attack on the Sri Lanka team bus in Pakistan.

However he told Sunday's News of the World: "I will be consulting as many people as I can, but if I do not think it is right then I will not be going.

"After this final test against the West Indies, I will be speaking to Bangalore, and the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) to my agent and to security advisors.

He won't pull out. I think KP will go ahead and play unless ECB stop him from doing so.

This will become a huge

This will become a huge problem. NZC is not going to send their players. ECB will kick a fuss, I dont think the Proteas want to be in the sub continent after attacks on Sri Lanka either.

If these terrorist can target their own asian kind an all white cricket team would be top of the hit list.
