An official of the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has revealed that they will be considering either UAE or Mumbai to hold the Indian Premier League (IPL).
IPL, which was to be staged by 29th March, faced several delays in the schedule amidst the COVID-19. Finally, the step was taken to postpone the league until further notice.
The decision that hangs by a threat is to finalize the venues. As earlier, some of the officials declared Sri Lanka and UAE as the possible venues if the league will be commenced outside India. Later, they revealed that New Zealand also proposed them for hosting and it can also be considered. Now, the reports suggest that if BCCI will be taking the cash-rich league outside India, UAE will be preferred, or if played in India, Mumbai might be a possible choice.

“The certain thing is that the IPL is all set to happen this year. The choice of venue will be taken into consideration after assessing the situation in the country. The UAE government is in touch with its Indian counterpart and if India can’t host the event, UAE will,” he said while speaking to Sportskeeda.
