With the dates of the general elections finalised, IPL chairman Ranjib Biswal today said 60 to 70 per cent matches in the seventh edition of the Twenty20  tournament will be held in India.      

The decision to host "bulk of the matches" in India was  taken after a meeting of BCCI bigwigs, including its president  N Srinivasan, senior vice-president Rajeev Shukla, secretary  Sanjay Patel, Biswal and IPL CEO Sundar Raman at a city hotel  here.      

Biswal insisted that since IPL is a domestic event, their  main objective is to conduct majority of the matches in India.      

"Now that the elections dates have been finalised, we are  working towards hosting bulk of the matches in India. Since  it is the Indian Premier League we need to accomodate as many  matches in India," Biswal told reporters after coming out from  a meeting of the IPL governing council at a city hotel here.
