IPL 2021: Major update from the BCCI for the participation of sites, dates and fans of the IPL 2021.
BCCI major update for IPL 2021 sites, dates: The thirteenth edition of the IPL, which was supposed to take place in India, was moved to the United Arab Emirates after Covid-19 hit the world hard. The next edition of the Indian Premier League is still uncertain as the second wave of coronavirus has struck recently.
As cases of covid increase in India, BCCI is not sure whether to organize the Indian T20 League in the country. According to the BCCI, if the deteriorating situation in the country does not improve quickly, they may have to move the 2021 IPL out of India again.
BCCI Treasurer Arun Dhumal, in an interview with Insidesports, provided a major update on the IPL. Dhumal said BCCI was still unsure of the IPL’s conduct in the country. As cases are increasing rapidly, BCCI is currently in a risky situation. He said the final decision will be made once the India-England series is over.
Locations for IPL 2021:
When asked about the entire IPL to be conducted in one location, Dhumal said all possibilities will be explored. With no more than two months left for the fourteenth edition of the IPL, the BCCI will soon have to answer the call.
Previously, it was reported that the IPL could take place in Maharashtra only because the state has three grounds for hosting the games at international level. As the situation in Maharashtra worsens day by day after the second wave of coronavirus has hit, BCCI will surely consider the appeal again.
Meanwhile, to make matters worse for BCCI, three (unnamed) players who are part of the 2021 Vijay Hazare Trophy (ODI National Championship) have tested positive for COVID-19. Players who have tested positive for the unholy virus belong to Maharashtra, Bihar and Himachal Pradesh and are currently being held in isolation.
