IPL matches on May 4, 6 won't be played in Bangalore
Tuesday 26 March 2013

The Indian Premier League matches scheduled to be held in the city on May 4 and 6, could either be shifted or rescheduled owing to Assembly elections in Karnataka.
    
"The matches on May 4 and 6 will be either shifted or rescheduled owing to Assembly elections in

 

Karnataka. We will arrive at a decision in a couple of days," a KSCA official said.
    
The Karnataka Assembly election is scheduled on May 5 and counting of votes will take place on May 8.
    
The KSCA held a meeting after Bangalore Police Commissioner Jotiprakash Mirji expressed his inability to provide security to the IPL matches due to elections, the official said.
    
"It will not be possible for us to provide security for the matches as our officers would be deployed for elections," Mirji told reporters.
    
Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad are scheduled to play their away matches against Royal Challengers Bangalore on May 4 and 6, respectively.
