Sourav Ganguly and other officials set to leave to UAE to plan the IPL remainder

Sourav Ganguly, Jay Shah, and other officials from BCCI will be going to UAE today for making the plan to conduct the IPL in September & October.

The 14th edition of the IPL had got canceled due to the sudden spike of COVID-19 in the country and also the disease had hit the camps of the four teams. On Sunday, BCCI had held a Special General Meeting(SGM) in a virtual mode to discuss on how to conduct the remaining games of the season.

Once the decision was made in the meeting, Jay Shah, the secretary of the Board of control for Cricket in India said the governing body decided to conduct the remaining 31 games at the ‘desert’ land, UAE. He also said the reason behind shifting the tournament to UAE from India was not because of the hard-hit pandemic situation in the country, but it was because of the weather conditions in India during the month of September-October as there will be a monsoon during those months in the country.

Also, in the SGM, the BCCI decided to seek more time from ICC to conduct the T20 world cup in India. BCCI is keen on staging the marquee event in India but is aware of the challenges possessed by COVID-19.

Currently, BCCI is more focused on conducting the remaining games of the year’s IPL circuit. With regards to this, the cricketing body’s chief Sourav Ganguly and the board’s secretary Jay Shah along with the other officials from BCCI will be going to UAE today to make further arrangements to conduct the IPL in September and October.
