BCCI Vice President Rajeev Shukla has announced the dates for the 14th season of the Indian Premier League. The remaining matches of IPL 2021, hanging in the balance due to Corona virus, will be played in the UAE from 19 September to 15 October. This is the first time that this has been confirmed by the board or any official associated with the tournament.
BCCI vice-president Rajeev Shukla said, “The remaining matches of the IPL will be held from September 19 to October 15.” The IPL 2021 season was postponed on May 4 after Corona cases surfaced in the franchises. There are 31 matches left in this IPL season. The remainder of the tournament will be held in the UAE and is expected to take place shortly before the T20 World Cup.
The International Cricket Council (ICC), however, has not officially announced the dates for the T20 World Cup. The T20 World Cup is to be held in India but it is expected that BCCI can organize it in UAE or Oman. With the Corona situation not ending in India, the BCCI has sought time till June 28 from the ICC to clarify the situation on hosting the T20 World Cup. If the T20 World Cup is organized from October 18, then there will be three days between it and the IPL.

The ICC on Wednesday said that there should be no set gap between domestic and ICC tournaments. “We will announce the dates and venue of the T20 World Cup in July,” an ICC official said. We cannot comment on this yet. But there is no gap rule for ICC events. ICC needs 10 days to prepare the pitch and ground but this is a standard, not a rule.
“The rest of the things are going on between the BCCI and the ICC. We will talk about this later. When asked whether players will get less time to shift from IPL to T20 World Cup. To this, Shukla said that there is no problem with the short day gap, as there is a match between the non-Test playing nations in the initial phase of the T20 World Cup. 16 teams will participate in the T20 World Cup, including five Test-playing countries.

The ICC, however, said that it cannot confirm anything about this as things are still being worked out. Regarding India’s proposed tour of Sri Lanka in July, Shukla said that it is being worked on and a final decision will be taken soon.
