On Saturday, the decision taken in the BCCI's AGM meeting was that the leftover matches of the IPL 2021 would be held in UAE. IPL 2021 was stopped because some of the players tested positive for Covid-19 in the first week of May. The schedule for the remaining matches has not been announced yet. The IPL will be played in the UAE for the second consecutive year.
BCCI secretary Jay Shah has totally explained, taking the tournament outside India by saying that the decision has been made due to weather conditions and the second wave of Covid-19 in India.
In September, the country would witness an appreciable amount of rainfall; that's why the dates which BCCI is chosen for the remaining matches are from September end to the middle of October.
Shah said that "We are moving IPL to the UAE only due to weather restrictions as we cannot hold IPL here at the time of monsoon. How can we hold IPL in September in Mumbai or Ahmedabad, or any other venues at the time of monsoon? It doesn't make any sense."
The BCCI has not decided on the ICC Twenty20 World Cup 2021. ICC T20 World Cup is scheduled to be held in India in the last quarter of 2021. Shah also said about this, "And as far as the T20 World Cup is concerned, we will seek time from ICC and decide later. We are in the mind frame of holding tournaments in the safe zone, and we will see how the situation is in the upcoming days. The only thing I can say for now is to seek time from ICC and decide accordingly."
