London: Former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi feels that the Indian Cricket Board can hardly help that the cash-rich league is held in April-May every year and this will be a problem in all World Cup years.
"The IPL is a long tournament without doubt. It is scheduled in the Indian summer during April and May. Usually the IPL takes place at the end of the season so the boys should be able to go out there and play and have a good time. That was the original idea," Modi, who was present at The Oval to watch the third ODI between India and England told a cricket website.
"But this year had a World Cup and having a competitive tour like England became an issue. It could be a problem every World Cup year."
