BCCI Secretary Jay Shah is in constant touch with the Central Government regarding the organization of IPL.
The upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) can start from March 22. So this time too it will be played in home and away format only. However, despite the Lok Sabha elections, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to hold the tournament in the Indian subcontinent.
It is noteworthy that due to the general elections in the year 2009, the entire tournament had to be shifted to South Africa. So, due to the 2014 general elections, the first 20 matches of the tournament were played in UAE, and after that the entire season was played in India. But this was not the case at the time of 2019 general elections. So now once again the government and the Indian Cricket Board are considering doing this.
Revealed in these reports
Let us tell you that according to a report by Dainik Jagran regarding IPL, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah is working closely with the Central and State Governments to organize the tournament without any hindrance. During this time, security is a very important issue and like 2019, it is expected that the matches will not be held in the cities where elections are proposed.
On the other hand, the second season of the Women’s Premier League can be played this time in New Delhi and Bangalore. It is noteworthy that the first season was played in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai. However, this time there is every possibility of the tournament going to another city. Apart from this, the second season of WPL can start this time in the last week of February and it will end just before the 17th season of IPL.
