Details of IPL 2022
The IPL Governing Council meeting was held virtually and the main topic of discussion was which cities and which stadiums in India will host IPL 2022. In a tense meeting, it was decided that the IPL will be held in Maharashtra. Meanwhile, 55 games will be played in Mumbai and 15 in Pune. Four major stadiums have also been identified to host IPL 2022. The games will be played at 20 Wankhede Stadium, 15 Brabourne Stadium, 20 Dee Patil Stadium and finally, 15 Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) stadiums in Gahunje. Also at the meeting, the IPL’s board of governors (GC) added that for the first time, the IPL was able to fill all six sponsorship slots, of which one title sponsor and five associate sponsors. If this had not happened, there would have been several vacant seats each year.
In addition, the BCCI identified four sites for teams to practice. Cricket teams will be allocated BKC grounds at Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai, Brabourne Stadium in South Mumbai, DY Patil ground in Navi Mumbai and MCA ground in Kandivali or Thane.
Due to the epidemiological situation, the option of holding IPL 2022 in Sri Lanka and South Africa was considered. However, IPL chairman Brijesh Patel said that the BCCI has categorically decided to hold the 10-team league on home soil, in India. According to Patel’s statement, the exact number of days and the full schedule will be released soon.
In an interview, Patel said that the 2022 IPL will not take place with empty stands as it did last season. At least 50 percent of the spectators will be present in the stadiums’ stands in accordance with Maharashtra government policy.
A date has also been set for the end of the tournament. It will end on May 29. IPL chairman Brijesh Patel added in an interview that no venue for the playoff has been decided yet, but the option of holding it in Ahmedabad was being considered. Exactly the venue, Patel promises to announce in the near future.
As for the Women’s IPL, the BCCI plans to start next year, but tournaments like the Women’s T20 Challenge will be held this year as before. So every Indian online cricket betting fan will be able to watch both the women’s team tournaments and the 15th season of IPL 2022, the date of which is definitely known, and that is March 26!
