The West Bengal government will take stock of the revised schedule of the Indian Premier League at a high-level meeting on Thursday to determine whether It needs any changes to the security set up for the Twenty20 league.

“The state government has already received the revised schedule of the IPL which will be reviewed at a high-level meeting day after tomorrow,” Chief Secretary Asok Mohan Chakraborty said.

Convened by the Chief Secretary, the meeting would be attended by state Home Secretary Ardhendu Sen, Sports Secretary KN Behera, DGP AB Vohra and Kolkata Police Commissioner Goutam Mohan Chakraborty.

The city police commissioner told PTI that the meeting would discuss whether the revised schedule would require any changes to the security arrangement.

Seven IPL matches are scheduled for Kolkata. The revised schedule had fixed five matches in April and two in May, instead of three matches in April and four in May in the original schedule, the commissioner said.
