Minor changes only to next month's Indian Twenty20 league

There'll be minor changes only to Indian's popular Twenty20 cricket league next month.

Indian authorities wanted the Indian Cricket Board to reschedule the league as security forces would be focusing their resources on the country's general elections which are being held at the same time.

The Indian Cricket Board has agreed to reschedule matches so that none are in cities when elections are being held.

The league, which involves many international players, has been thrust into the security spotlight in the wake of Tuesday's militant attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Pakistan.
