Prior, there were conversations that Mumbai, with four arenas — Wankhede, Brabourne, DY Patil and Reliance Stadium, will be a decent alternative to make a solitary bio-secure air pocket and hold the eight-week long competition.
However, ,the COVID-19 circumstance in Maharashtra has deteriorated with a spike in COVID-19 cases.
The BCCI is taking a gander at four to five settings for leading the following release of the Indian Premier League with Mumbai as a solitary host not looking achievable any longer after a flood in COVID-19 cases in and around the city.
“There is still a month left for the IPL to start but obviously some decisions need to be taken. It will be risky to have a single city IPL in Mumbai if there is steady rise in cases that’s happening right now,” a senior BCCI official told PTI.
“So cities like Hyderabad, Bengaluru, and Kolkata will be ready to host matches. Ahmedabad, in all likelihood, will host the play-off and final match of the IPL,” added by BCCI.
The IPL is planned to begin in the second seven day stretch of April. The competition must be taken to the UAE a year ago due to the pandemic.
Maharashtra is seeing a recharged flood in COVID-19 cases and recorded more than 8,000 of them on Thursday. The city of Mumbai enlisted more than 1100 cases around the same time.
With this concern, the Governing IPL Council will be in a bit of doubt to carry a positive approach for the conduction of another tournament. With knocking out of Mumbai as hosting city, a highly conspiracy has been initiated in the panel and all the fans want to know which state will be the epitome prior for the IPL-2021.
