BCCI in action after Corona's 'whip' on IPL 2021

If the tournament shifts to Mumbai, then its schedule can also be changed.

There has been a ruckus after the entry of Corona in the IPB 2021 bio bubble. The sound of ending the league in the middle is getting louder. However, the BCCI's intentions for its T20 league's 14th season are something else. He wants to make the league a complete success despite Corona's attack. Therefore, he has prepared an action plan. If the report of ESPNcricinfo is accepted, then the remaining matches of IPL 2021 can be shifted to Mumbai. For example, they can be organized only in Mumbai.

The major reason behind this step of BCCI can be 3 cricket stadiums in Mumbai. Mumbai has Wankhede Stadium, DY Patil Stadium and Brabourne Stadium. That is, one city, 3 stadiums and successful conduct of IPL 2021. Soreness from above also reduced. However, this will only happen, official announcement has not been made about it.

If IPL 2021 Mumbai shifts, then schedule will also change

The report said that if the tournament shifts to Mumbai, then its schedule can also be changed. And if this happens, then the final match can be held on May 30 and not in the first week of June. At the moment, the final of IPL 2021 is scheduled in Ahmedabad. There are many double header matches, in such a situation, BCCI wants to avoid the team's travel plan, so that the risk of corona can be reduced.

Teams travel plan

IPL 2021 began with matches in Chennai and Mumbai. After this, the teams turned to Ahmedabad and Delhi. There is a plan to go to Kolkata and Bengaluru before the playoffs. At the same time, the final match is in Ahmedabad. According to the report, it is becoming difficult for the BCCI to strengthen the biobubble in the hotel for the eight teams. Almost all the cities of India are in the grip of Corona. The situation in Mumbai has improved a bit. There has been a decrease in new cases. However, the official announcement has not yet been made by the BCCI to shift the matches to Mumbai. The board has told the franchisees that they have kept an eye on the situation.
