Where IPL 2021 will take place?

 

It is still unclear whether IPL 2021 will take place in India. However, if India successfully hosts England, it will pave the way for organisers to hold IPL in the country. Notably, the previous edition of Indian Premier League was played in UAE amid Covid-19 pandemic.

 

UAE definitely will be the second option considering how well the tournament was organised there in the 13th edition.

 

The BCCI put on a grand show in 2020 and hosted the IPL in UAE with aplomb. Not only were the teams put into individual bio-secure bubbles, but also the host broadcasters ensured that they followed all strict protocols to help in the successful hosting of the league amid the coronavirus pandemic.
