New Delhi: With the government making it clear that it will not be able to provide adequate security for IPL 7, the BCCI has started talking to cricket boards of other countries for possible venues of the cash-rich tournament, tournament chairman Ranjib Biswal said on Friday.

"The (central) government had expressed it's inability to provide adequate security for IPL 7 in view of the upcoming general elections. So we have started talking to different countries to hold the tournament," he said.

Asked if South Africa is a likely venue, he said, "South Africa is a favoured venue to host the matches but we will have to decide."
