BCCI to Make Big Changes in IPL 2021 Schedule

Due to the 2nd wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in India, the BCCI decided to suspend the 2021 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) indefinitely. The board announced that the 2nd leg of the IPL would be held in the UAE. However, a lot of details regarding the tournament have not been released to the public as of yet. Many franchises are still unsure about the dates of the matches and the entire tournament. Take a look at the IPL latest news to make better betting and franchise decisions.

List of Venues for IPL 2021

Just like 2020, the second half of the 2021 season will be played in 3 cities in the UAE. These are Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah. However, the BCCI will probably decide to hold the eliminator and qualifier matches in the Dubai stadium. It is expected that the finals will be held in the Dubai sports complex, just like the case of IPL 2020.

Timing Schedule Of The Matches

In 2020, when there were 2 matches in a day, the first began at 7:30 PM and the second began at 11:30 PM. Maybe, something similar will be enacted during this edition of the tournament as well. If you want to take part in betting in IPL, then you have to wait until the BCCI releases the official schedule of the remaining matches.

A Large Problem of Logistics

There is also a logistical problem at play here. The UAE has a flight ban from India right now, which is slated to end on July 15. So until that time, officials from the BCCI and the IPL will not be able to visit Dubai and shore up the agreements. When the ban is lifted, franchise owners think that the process will be speeded up.

The Matter With Overseas Players

The BCCI is also in talks with overseas cricket boards, so that their players can be released in time for the matches. Even though there isn’t much time left until IPL 2021 starts, most are hopeful that the BCCI will be able to bring this matter to a speedy conclusion. Soon, fans and cricketers will start to focus on the exciting games held in UAE.

Conclusion

This is all you need to know about the new routine of the second half of the IPL. Keep yourself informed so that you can make good decisions later.
