Meanwhile, the BCCI spoke about completing the remainder of IPL 2021 in September. They also looked at three venues for completing the rest of the tournament. UAE is close to being confirmed as the venue for the remainder of the IPL after the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases has made it difficult for the board to end the tournament in India.
The safe return of the overseas players is another matter of concern for the BCCI and the IPL governing council. Eight out of 11 England players have reached the UK on Wednesday and the remaining three would leave within next 48 hours.
Meanwhile, the BCCI and Cricket Australia are in talks for helping the Australian cricketers possibly return to their country through the Maldives.
Meanwhile, Rajeev Shukla, the BCCI Vice President said that the tournament has been suspended and not entirely cancelled with such reports making the rounds.
“I want to make it clear that IPL 2021 has been not cancelled. It has been suspended, it has been postponed, it has been deferred, so it will happen. The remaining part of this year’s IPL will happen. But in due course, when the covid situation improves, a decision will be taken about it,” said Shukla.
