Because of the rising cases of COVID-19 across teams, the IPL 2021 has been postponed indefinitely.
The MCC, Surrey, Lancashire, Warwickshire – based at Lord’s – the Kia Oval (London), Edgbaston (Birmingham) and Old Trafford (Manchester) are part of the group of County clubs to have written to the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) while inviting them to extend the opportunity to the BCCI, according to ESPNCricinfo.
In the second half of September, the delayed IPL 2021 is expected to be completed in about two weeks.
In addition to completing the T20 tournament, the County clubs have stated that top players will receive high-quality cricket prior to the T20 World Cup and that the pitches in the UAE will be new.
Particularly, the United Arab Emirates is being acclaim as an alternative host for the IPL 2021.
Furthermore, the counties hope that the games will be held in front of large audiences.
The plan, however, faces a few roadblocks, according to the report.
Although it is difficult to guess what the pandemic will bring next, there is still time to make a decision on the T20 World Cup host.
Bringing players and staff from all over the world into the United Kingdom would be a big challenge.
