IPL: Indian Premier League 2009

IPL transfer window postponed by a week


The IPL transfer window, which was scheduled to begin on December 15, has been postponed by a week after the Mumbai terrorist attacks disrupted preparations for the event. The IPL officials will meet some time this week to prepare the rules for the transfers which will now take place from December 22 to January 22.

The terror strikes in Mumbai on November 26 forced organisers to postpone the Champions Twenty20 League that was to kick off on December 3, with Mumbai as one of the three venues.

Many key Indian IPL officials were involved in organising the Champions League and the tournament’s postponement affected the IPL’s transfer window as well. “The attacks delayed a week of preparation for both the franchisees and us,” an IPL official told Cricinfo.

With the Champions League pushed back by a year, it is the second season of the IPL that will decide which Indian teams participate in international Twenty20 tournament. The second season of the IPL will be held between April 10 and May 29, 2009.
