Sourav Ganguly, who is the President of The Board of Control for Cricket in India, has recently claimed during an interaction with the SportsStar that the remaining IPL matches can not happen in India. IPL 2021 was suspended in the mid of the Season after 29 matches had already been played on May 4, 2021, due to the sudden upsurge of infection and the virus’s infringement of the bio bubble.
What did Saurav Ganguly say?
During the interaction to discuss the possibility of IPL in the last quarter of the year, Sourav Ganguly claimed that the Board hasn’t decided where the remaining season will take place. Still, it will not be in India, given that there are many organizational hazards like the 14-day quarantine, which is tough to handle. BCCI is not sure about how they will be able to conclude the season.
Ganguly also informed that the Indian team would be heading to Sri Lanka for a limited-overs series, comprising three ODI and five T20s in July. Hence the possibility of IPL 2021 be resuming in England after the World Test Championship final and before the start of the five-Test series in the UK has vanished into thin air.
Which Countries are ready to host IPL 2021?
If sources are to be believed, several English countries, the Warwickshire and Lancashire have expressed their willingness to host the rest of the season of IPL in September. For that, they have even written to England and Wales Cricket Board.
Even Sri Lanka Cricket has shown interest in hosting the remaining season in September. They have claimed to be able to provide a window for the lucrative league.
