Durban: Indian Premier League (IPL) Commissioner Lalit Modi will meet Cricket South Africa CEO Gerald Majola at an undisclosed venue Tuesday afternoon to discuss the possibility of hosting the second edition of the Twenty20 event here.
“Cricket South Africa’s CEO, Gerald Majola, is due to meet with Lalit Modi, in South Africa Tuesday afternoon at an undisclosed venue to discuss IPL hosting issues,” the CSA said in a statement.
The outcome of the meeting would be conveyed later, the cricket board said.
According to sources, Modi will check out the possibility of hosting the event here after the government back home had an issue with the dates of the tournament which clash with the Lok Sabha elections.
Modi is expected to leave Johannesburg for London Tuesday evening. He is expected to hold talks with the England and Wales Cricket Board there, exploring the possibility of hosting the league there.
South Africa, however, has an edge over England as a potential host of the cash-rich event because of the good weather in the April-May period.
