Mar 23: Indian cricket premier league to stage abroad

Security concerns have dominated the build-up to the lucrative eight-team event, involving many big-name international players, after an attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in the Pakistani city of Lahore earlier this month. Indian Cricket authorities also failed to secure approval from the government, who said it would be difficult to spare security forces as they would be deployed for the polls. India remains tense, 166 people were killed by attacks in the financial hub of Mumbai last November.
