The new Sardar Patel Stadium (Motera Stadium) in Ahmedabad will also be considered to host the IPL matches. Sarder Patel Stadium will most likely host the IPL knockout matches and finals.
It will be great news for Indian fans to see IPL unfold in India. While there are site restrictions, part of the franchise may have to share the same land.
The 3rd edition of Indian Premier League has moved to UAE due to the poor covid situation in India.
No Ranji Trophy this time
In the past 87 years, this will be the first time that BCCI has refused to host Ranji Trophy matches and instead, the Vijay Hazare Trophy will be held. The process was taken after obtaining the agreement of the various state associations and most of them were in favor of the BCCI. Also, the lack of time pushed BCCI to take the plunge.
“This will be the start of all forms of cricket in India after the covid. The national games will take place and for the international games, England and India will play 4 test matches with 5 T20I and 3 ODI ”. said a member of the BCCI.
IPL 2021 mini-auctions will take place on February 18 in Chennai. It is expected that BCCI will host IPL 2021 from the first week of April and this will continue until June.
