London, Apr 14 (UNI) England may soon have its own version of the IPL with ECB chairman Giles Clarke believing that a Twenty20 tournament similar to the one in India could be a reality within two years.

''We don't want a knee-jerk reaction to the IPL, but we believe that we can set up a robust, spectator-friendly, economically sustainable competition of our own which will not cut across the core revenue streams of Test and one-day international cricket,'' Clarke was qouted as saying by the local media.

Texan billionaire Allen Stanford, who has invested in a similar project in the West Indies, will reportedly meet England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) representatives.

IPL chairman Lalit Modi - whose much-hyped competition begins this week - has reportedly indicated he may be interested in a partnership of some sort between the two competitions.
