IPL 2021 Schedule news: IPL 2021 to resume in the UAE in September-October: BCCI | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: The remaining matches of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season will be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in September-October this year, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced on Saturday.
There are 31 matches that are yet to be played in IPL 2021. The likely dates will be between September 18 and October 10.
The decision, on resuming the league that was earlier suspended, was taken at a BCCI Special General Meeting (SGM) on Saturday, where members unanimously agreed to resume IPL 2021.
“The 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,” the BCCI said in a press release
It’s not surprising that the UAE emerged as the consensus venue, considering the entire IPL 2020 was held there and things went off smoothly.
India are also scheduled to host the ICC T20 World Cup later this year and that matter too was discussed at the meeting.
“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,” the release from the BCCI said.
