    MUMBAI: The Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) was trying to get an Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise to Indore. However, the final decision will be taken by the BCCI and the IPL Governing Council.

    MPCA president and union minister of state for commerce and industry Jyotiraditya Scindia said Indore is one of 10 cities shortlisted for a new franchise.

    On Monday, the Bombay High Court will hear the Deccan Chargers plea for a stay on the termination of its franchise agreement by the BCCI.

    Referring to MP chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan?s stand against IPL in the state, Scindia said that there was no need for state government?s support to get the IPL franchise or to play IPL in the state.

    He noted that with other franchises like Punjab, Delhi or Mumbai, there is no involvement of state government anywhere.

    On the MPCA meeting, Scindia said a decision has been taken to buy land in Indore and Jabalpur division.

    "Land at Super Corridor in Indore is our priority. Talks with the Indore Divisional Authority are on and we are hopeful that the state government will co-operate with us. Administration had already allotted around 100 acres land for multi- purpose sports complex at Super Corridor and the MPCA is ready to purchase 25 to 30 acres of land even at market rate".
