But whatever the status of the international schedules. The stubborn BCCI has almost managed to outline the rest of the IPL. It is likely that the rest of the postponed IPL matches will be held in Dubai in September-October.
The remaining matches of the 2021 IPL may start from September 19 to 20 in the United Arab Emirates. The final could be on October 10 or 12.
In the current scenario, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is desperate to finish the rest of the IPL. That’s why the BCCI asked the England Cricket Board to bring forward Kohli’s Test series schedule against Roots. So that there is enough time to host the remaining 31 matches of the IPL. Which has been postponed due to covid.
But even though the ECB did not respond to their request. Sourav Ganguly & Co. has started thinking about resuming the IPL. The rest of the matches of the 14th IPL are set to resume in September.
The 14th edition of the IPL matches started on Indian soil last April; But within 24 days, the franchise tournament had to be postponed IPL matches due to the spread of Covid-19 infection among the players.
However, the BCCI has said that if the IPL is not over, there will be a loss of around two to two and a half thousand crore rupees. For that reason, Saurabh is desperate to finish the IPL even at the end of the year. According to the news published in India Today, the rest of the matches will be held in the UAE like last year.
The five-match India-England Test series will end on September 14. The next day, on September 15, England and Indian cricketers playing in the IPL can fly directly from London to Dubai. Virat-Rohit will be able to play in the tournament after being in quarantine for three days in the United Arab Emirates.
The BCCI is in talks with the England and Wales Cricket Board. It is thought that the remaining 31 matches of the IPL can be completed only after getting an open window of 21 to 25 days. Of these, 27 are in the league and four are play-offs. The league’s mags have 9 to 10 doubleheaders. And seven single-day games.
