IPL 2021 moved to UAE amid COVID-19; remaining matches to be held in Sept-Oct, says BCCI

The remaining matches of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 will be played in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) announced on Saturday. This year’s IPL season was suspended on May 4 after multiple players had tested positive for COVID-19. The BCCI has now found a new window in the months of September and October 2021 when the remaining matches of the IPL 2021 season can be organised in UAE.

“The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Saturday announced to complete the remaining matches of VIVO Indian Premier League 2021 season in the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E) considering the monsoon season in India in the months of September-October this year,” noted BCCI Secretary Jay Shah in an official statement.  

Cricket’s richest body added that the decision was taken at a Special General Meeting (SGM) held virtually on Saturday, where board members unanimously agreed to resume IPL 2021 in UAE. “The BCCI SGM further authorised the Office Bearers to seek an extension of time from the ICC to take an appropriate call on the hosting of ICC T20 World Cup 2021,” Shah added.
