The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah has confirmed that the Indian Premier League will commence in the final week of March.
“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,” BCCI Secretary Jay Shah told ANI.
“BCCI has not compromised on the health & safety of its stakeholders in the past & will concurrently work on Plan B since #COVID19 situation with new variants remains fluid. Mega IPL Auction will take place on Feb 12-13th & we'll lock in venues before that,” he added.
