India is the BCCI’s first choice for the Indian Premier League 2021 event, but it can also be held in the UAE, given the state of the Kovid-19 epidemic. Earlier, the 12th season of IPL was successfully organized in the UAE. According to the Mumbai Mirror report, IPL 2021 was discussed in a virtual meeting of the IPL Governing Council on Monday. After this meeting, the trading window has been opened and the teams have been told that they can release their players till January 21.
The BCCI and Organizing Committee wants to organize IPL 2021 in March-April like every year, but it is also aware that the epidemic has not completely ended in India. So while the board wants to organize it in India, all the franchises are in favor of getting it once again in the UAE so that everything is done safely. Therefore, where the tournament will be held, the BCCI will decide after watching its domestic T20 tournament (Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy).
India’s domestic T20 tournament is going to start from 10 January this time, which will be played in Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Baroda, Indore and Chennai. While the tournament knockout matches will be played in Ahmedabad. Many Indian veterans will also be seen playing in this tournament. In such a situation, the BCCI will keep an eye on the event of this tournament and then decide where the IPL 2021 will be held.
According to the report, a mini auction can be held in the second week of February for the 13th season of IPL. Although earlier it was expected that, before this season, BCCI may organize a big auction, but according to the report, only small auction will be held this time.
