IPL 2022: Sourav Ganguly Reveals Venues

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 would most likely be contested in India “unless and unless COVID-19 hits the roof,” according to BCCI president Sourav Ganguly. With the IPL 2022 super auction less than a fortnight away, Ganguly’s statements are sure to excite Indian cricket fans, who have been denied a full IPL season for the past two years – IPL 2020 was wholly hosted in the UAE, whereas the previous year’s edition began in India but was cut short due to a COVID-19 epidemic, and was resumed a few months later in the UAE. The board is also considering holding the league phase of the 15th season of the IPL in Mumbai and Pune, according to the former India captain. However, Ganguly did not say whether or not the public will be permitted into the venues.

When asked about the location of IPL 2022, Ganguly said Sportstar, “It will be held in India this year, until and unless COVID-19 hits the roof.” “In terms of sites, we’re thinking of staging the matches in Maharashtra, specifically Mumbai and Pune.” “We’ll make a decision on the knockout stages places later,” he continued.

The BCCI has yet to make an official announcement about the start date of the IPL 2022, although board secretary Jay Shah has hinted that it will likely begin in late March.

Two new franchises, the Lucknow Super Giants and the Ahmedabad squad will join the IPL this year, bringing the total number of teams to ten.

In the two-day mega auction set to take place in Bengaluru on February 12 and 13, all franchises will look to build a formidable team by selecting the proper individuals. Ravichandran Ashwin, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan, Yuzvendra Chahal, David Warner, Quinton de Kock, Pat Cummins, Faf du Plessis, and Jofra Archer are among the 590 cricketers who will be auctioned off.

The ten teams have already retained 33 cricketers and will now try to create a team around the superstars.

Ganguly also discussed India’s biggest domestic competition, which is expected to be staged in two phases this year after being canceled the previous year.

“We obviously missed one Ranji Trophy season – the 2020-21 season.” It is India’s most important competition, and we have always aspired to host it. But I don’t believe something like what the world has experienced in the previous two years could have happened in anyone’s lifetime.

“With all of these considerations in mind, organizing any event was a task.” The Cooch Behar Trophy was organized, and the third wave arrived. The virus infected 50 players on the first day alone. As a result, it is not simple. However, we are fortunate in that we can still hold competitions. “We’re still crossing our fingers that everything goes well,” Ganguly added.
