BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary on Monday said that the board is trying its best to ensure all matches of the 2019 IPL take place in India.

The dates and venues of the IPL are not announced yet as the BCCI is awaiting the schedule of the 2019 general elections which could clash with the T20 league.

“We are trying our best to ensure that not a single game is taken out of India,” said Choudhary during the IPL auction in Jaipur on Tuesday.
