      'We have been forced to move IPL outside India because of the attitude of the government, especially the Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh governments' - said BCCI president Shashank Manohar. (AP Photo)
      'Unfortunately, we could not hold it in India because of the election issues. We had to take into account the need for continuity in holding the tournament. We could not have found other dates in the international calendar' - IPL commissioner Lalit Modi said in a press conference. (AP Photo)
      'It is a great decision. We will follow what the IPL and BCCI decide. All the franchise owners have decided to stick together and see it through' - Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)-owner Shah Rukh Khan reacted. (AP Photo)
      'Elections are number one priority and we had to take it into consideration. We want to have this tournament to happen too, so this is a good decision as every fan will still get to see it from 4 p.m. to 8 pm' - Kings XI Punjab co-owner Preity Zinta said welcoming the decision. (AP Photo)
      'If the choice is no tournament, or the tournament in another country, then we clearly prefer the latter. The locations and options presented are all viable, and we are working closely with the IPL, as they formulate a decision over the next 24 hours' - Rajasthan Royals co-owner Shilpa Shetty, though disappointed at the news, also followed suit.

      'Shifting IPL out of India was the last resort for us but we did not want to stop IPL from taking place this year. IPL has assured us that there won't be any losses' - Mumbai Indians co-owner Nita Ambani said. (AP Photo)
    • 'We are happy that the tournament is being held. It was unfortunate that it is not in India despite trying to adjust the dates because of the ensuing general elections. All the franchises without exception wanted the show to go on' - Bangalore's Royal Challengers team owner Vijay Mallya was quoted as saying. (AP Photo)
