IPL 2021 May Resume On September In UAE
Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 will resume tentatively on September 18 or 19 in the UAE
The IPL 2021
The IPL 2021 was postponed on May 4 after many COVID-19 cases were discovered within its bio-bubble. During a three-week period, ten doubleheaders are planned to be played and It’s possible that the final may take place on October 9 or 10 and will be able to finish its remaining 31 games inside the three-week timetable.
“The BCCI has spoken to all the stakeholders and the likely start could be between September 18th to 20th. Since September 18 is a Saturday and 19 a Sunday, it is more likely that you would want to re-start it on a weekend date,”
“Similarly, October 9th or 10th will be the final as it’s a weekend. We are finalizing the itinerary and there will be 10 double headers and seven evening matches along with four main games (two qualifiers, one eliminator and the final), which completes the list of 31 matches,” the official added.
The Indian Team Final Against England
The Indian team’s final Test match against England will be played on September 14 in Manchester, and the following day, the entire team (with the exception of Hanuma Vihari and Abhimanyu Easwaran) will be transferred to the UAE in a chartered airplane for a “bubble to bubble” transfer.

Similarly, the West Indies players will also fly in after completing the Caribbean Premier League engagements. There will be three-day quarantine for players arriving from UK and the Caribbean,”
India T20 Series against South Africa
The BCCI has decided to postpone India’s T20 series against South Africa, which was supposed to take place in September as part of the team’s preparations for the T20 World Cup.
“The series can’t be held and in any case there can’t be any better preparation for the T20 World Cup than playing a high intensity tournament like IPL” BCCI said.
“There is a chance that India might play extra games when they tour South Africa early next year,”.
Hosting The IPL 2021
the BCCI would not agree to give up its hosting rights until the COVID-19 situation in India has been resolved, there is little possibility that countries will want to visit India, which is experiencing its biggest health crisis due to COVID-19
