The decision was taken at a Special General Meeting (SGM) held virtually, where members unanimously agreed to resume IPL.
The BCCI’s Special General Meeting (SGM) on Saturday unanimously decided to restart the Indian Premier League (IPL) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the third week of September. The members also agreed to keep UAE as a backup venue for the T20 World Cup later this 12 months, although the BCCI will request the ICC to attend for at least one more month before taking a final call.
“With the Covid curve coming down in India, we’re still optimistic about holding the T20 World Cup within the nation in October-November. We’ll request the ICC to wait at least till the primary week of July,” a BCCI official told The Indian Express.
“As for the resumption of the IPL, as because September is still peak monsoon, the members have agreed to its shifting out to UAE (for the remaining 31 matches),” he added.

“The Board of Management for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Saturday announced to finish the remaining matches of VIVO Indian Premier League 2021 season within the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E) contemplating the monsoon season in India within the months of September-October this 12 months,” stated the BCCI press launch.
The IPL was postponed after 29 games when Covid entered the bubble. It’s set for a restart after India’s five-match Check series in England that concludes on September 14. With India reeling beneath the second wave of the pandemic, there’s a query mark over organizing the T20 World Cup in India as well, but because the BCCI stated, the members expressed optimism. The BCCI will talk its decision to the ICC forward of its Board assembly on June 1.
The SGM that lasted less than an hour, saw Mohammed Azharuddin symbolize the Hyderabad Cricket Association as its president. The 2021-22 home season and the compensation package deal for home cricketers weren’t objects on the agenda. However, it’s learned that the BCCI will get again to the members on the subjects soon.
