BCCI President Sourav Ganguly on Saturday revealed the window slots for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League. He also confirmed the series against England will take place in India early next year, along with the domestic season.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the 13th edition of the IPL has been a success in the UAE this year. In fact, the viewership has surged due to the matches taking place behind closed doors.
Following the success of IPL 13, the BCCI is also aiming at staging the tournament on the Indian soil instead of using foreign venue.
“Yeah, absolutely. April, May we’ll have another one [IPL 2021 season]. No, no it’s not true [the speculations of IPL 2021 in UAE]. The UAE was only for the IPL. Yeah, yeah. We will host England in India. We will host domestic cricket in India. Ranji Trophy, we will create a bio bubble and we will do it.” Ganguly said.
Ganguly further asserted, “We’ll be fine. We’ll be fine. ISL starting in November in Goa, we’ll be fine. The scare, that is not there anymore and the IPL has helped a lot.”
He also said that India will also host England next year but the BCCI will ensure all the necessary protocols while hosting the series.
