BCCI to start IPL 2022 on March 27: IPL is expected to begin on March 27, and the BCCI is confident of hosting the tournament across four venues in Maharashtra – the Wankhede Stadium, Brabourne Stadium, DY Patil Stadium, and the MCA Stadium in Gahunje.
With the coronavirus, pandemics caused quite a bit of mayhem in India and all across the globe. The venue and the schedule for the upcoming edition of the IPL were a bit of a concern for the BCCI.
According to Cricbuzz, the BCCI is now eyeing a 27 March start for the IPL in 2022. Other than Mumbai, the BCCI has Pune on the radar in the state, Cricbuzz had reported, which would then allow them access to four grounds in close proximity.
BCCI and franchisees believe that staging the tournament in Maharashtra would not be an issue because the state has a sufficient number of star hotels and stadiums with top-class infrastructure. There will be no need for air travel in this case which would help in protecting the bio-bubble.
Earlier, there were speculations that the tournament could be shifted to Sri Lanka or South Africa. But Sportstar understands that all franchises believe that the tournament should be held in India, maybe with no spectators.
“I am delighted to confirm that the 15th season of the IPL will start in the last week of March and will run until May end. A majority of the team owners expressed their wish that the tournament be held in India. The BCCI was always keen on staging the 2022 edition that will see two new teams – Ahmedabad and Lucknow – in India. I can tell you that we will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that IPL stays in India”.
“The BCCI has not compromised on the health and safety of its stakeholders in the past. And will concurrently work on Plan B since the COVID-19 situation with new variants remains fluid. The mega IPL Auction will take place on February 12-13th and we will lock in venues before that,” BCCI Secretary Jay Shah said on Saturday.
