Jaipur: BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary on Monday said 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 here on Tuesday.

Due to the World Cup in England from 30 May-14 July, the IPL is likely to run from last week of March to mid-May.

The BCCI had hosted the tournament in South Africa during the 2009 elections before partially hosting it in the UAE during the 2014 elections.
