Vivo IPL 2021: BCCI might consider Phase 2 of Vivo IPL 2021 in UAE, Australia or UK.

Vivo IPL 2021: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is still mulling over how to complete the mid-way suspended Indian T20 League and is exploring the possible options. The Indian cricket board along with broadcasters, franchise owners, stakeholders and IPL governing council (GC) are unanimous in this agreement.

As of now, the board is only looking for opportunities in the small window of September. Phase-2 of the Indian Premier League – as they say – is certainly going to be out of India however where? is the main query of the fans and experts.

 BCCI has three options to hold the remainder of the season fourteenth.

UAE:

This is a tried and tested option in front of the BCCI. UAE has three venues namely Sharjah, Dubai and Abu Dhabi where the last editions IPL was held without any issues. The three grounds are not very far from each other and the franchise can easily avoid travel in the flights.

If the T20 World Cup, which is scheduled to be held in India later this year gets rescheduled and hosted in UAE, then it will be easily feasible for the BCCI to hold the remaining games of the IPL 2021 there.

The remaining season will work as the practice for the players of each nation. The cricketers will be willing to travel there due to better facilities and a secure bio-bubble environment.

United Kingdom:

To consider the remaining of the IPL 2021 in the United Kingdom will be a more viable option. India will travel to the UK for the World Test Championship in June and will remain there for the five games Test series against England post the Test championship.

BCCI can take the opportunity to hold the players there and conclude the remaining IPL games. “The weather will be good for cricket. It will suit the broadcaster too because the time zones can be adjusted and the overseas player outside India and England will be willing to travel,” said the top BCCI officials.

Then all the players can head to UAE for the T20 World Cup in October.

Australia:

The last option which comes forward is Australia. If the Australian government approves the proposal of the BCCI and revise its policies to conduct the T20 World Cup 2021 there and let India host the T20 World Cup 2022, the Indian board will be delighted.

“Cricket Australia won’t mind this exchange if their government allows. And since International players will anyway arrive there for the T20 World Cup, Perth – which is three and half hours ahead of the Indian Standard Time – can host the remainder of the IPL 2021,” said the source.

“This can happen if Australian government changes its mind and the broadcasters are willing to agree.”

“The new venues will include the freshness in the league and will attract more viewership. England and Australia and good options here,” said the sources.
