IPL Chairman quashes reports which claimed that India will be travelling to Pakistan for the tournament 

He dismissed the reports from Pakistani media claiming that India would travel to their neighboring country, as some quarters of their sports minister, Ehsan Mazari, had been asserting.

"There was no such discussion held. Neither India is travelling to Pakistan nor our secretary will be travelling contrary to reports that have surfaced. Only the schedule was finalised," Dhumal added.

It is highly probable that India will face Pakistan in Dambulla, Sri Lanka, just like in the 2010 edition. Pakistan's sole home match will be against the underdog team Nepal. The remaining three matches will include Afghanistan versus Bangladesh, Bangladesh versus Sri Lanka, and Sri Lanka versus Afghanistan.
