IPL 2022 Venue: Maharashtra to host the league matches, playoffs in Gujrat: The Board of Control for Cricket India (BCCI) is likely to host the league matches in Maharashtra while the playoffs will be played in Ahmedabad.
“As of now, the Board is mulling organizing the league stage in Maharashtra. And the playoffs in Ahmedabad,” revealed a source.
The league stage of the upcoming 15th edition of IPL will be played at the Wankhede Stadium, Brabourne Stadium in Cricket Club of India, the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai, and the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Gahunje, near Pune.
According to the Time of India, the BCCI thought that the BCCI, in plan B, was looking at staging the entire IPL this year in Maharashtra itself.
BCCI Sec Jay Shaha had informed the media last week that the board and the franchises are keen to host IPL in India itself.
“Yes,I believe that the IPL is coming to CCI, and we’ll be very glad to host it,” CCI president Premal Udani told TOI.
“If the number of positive cases aren’t high around that time. The state government authorities are likely to allow around 25% capacity crowds for this year’s IPL,” a top politician said on the condition of anonymity.
“As per that guideline, 50% capacity was allowed indoors, which means that corporate boxes, and perhaps the press box, could be filled up to 50% of the capacity,” a reliable source told this paper.
