ICC had decided to postpone T20 World Cup which was scheduled to be held in Australia later this year and this has created a window for BCCI to have the IPL. However, due to prevailing COVID conditions, the Tournament will be held in UAE.
IPL Chairman Brijesh Patel has announced that the action-packed cricket season starts from September 19th and will conclude with the Final on November 8th. The matches will be played in empty stadia following all the necessary precautions. The IPL will be followed by India’s tour of Australia in December.
The franchises will be discussing and finalizing the precautions. It is known to our readers that the 13th edition of IPL was earlier scheduled to commence from March 29, with Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings meeting at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai for the first match.Follow @THEPANIPURI
