"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.
