The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) today announced that the remaining matches of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season will be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in September-October this year. There are 31 matches that are yet to be played in IPL 2021. The likely dates will be between September 18 and October 10.
The decision, on resuming the league that was earlier suspended, was taken at a BCCI Special General Meeting (SGM), where members unanimously agreed to resume IPL 2021. It’s not a surprise that the UAE emerged as the consensus venue, considering the entire IPL 2020 was held there. India also scheduled to host the ICC T20 World Cup later this year and that matter too was discussed at the meeting.
