Finally the suspense over the venue of the Season 7 of India Premier League (IPL 2014) is over.
Yesterday BCCI took a decision to shift the first half of the tournament to United Arab Emirates (UAE). This is something which cricketing fans in Middle East will cheer.
Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi will be the three venues that will hot the matches of IPL 2014.

IPL 2014 will start on 16th April 2014 in United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the tournament will return to India on 13th May 2014.
This decision came after BCCI got a security clearance from the union home ministry to hold the IPL matches in India after May 12 (the last day of voting).
As a result, around 60 per cent of the matches would be played in UAE, a BCCI source told mid-day.
Initially South Africa was the front runner for hosting the tournament but it wanted to host the full tournament like it did in 2009, but BCCI wanted to host half of the tournament in India and hence they opted for UAE which recently successfully hosted the ICC U-19 World Cup.
A final and detailed itinerary is likely to be declared in a couple of days.
