Jay Shah, the secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), has stated that the 15th season of the Indian Premier League will be held in India. Shah announced the news at an event in Chennai called ‘The Champions Call,’ which was held to commemorate Chennai Super Kings’ win in the IPL 2021. “I’m sure you’re all looking forward to seeing the CSK play in Chepauk. So, the time is not far away. The IPL’s 15th season will be held in India, and it will be more thrilling than ever with the addition of two new teams”,the secretary of the BCCI stated.

We’ll be doing a major auction soon, so it’ll be interesting to see what the new combinations look like,” Jay Shah added. The Indian Premier League 2021 kicked off in India, but it was called off halfway through because of too many COVID-19 cases in the camps of participating franchises. The season was finally finished in the United Arab Emirates in September and October of this year. Previously, the entire 2020 IPL was held in the UAE.

England toured India for five Tests, five T20Is, and as many ODIs for the first time since the COVID-19 epidemic earlier this year. The Indian squad has been on the road since the competition was suspended, and the New Zealand trip began earlier this week. The BCCI announced in October that franchises from Lucknow and Ahmedabad will join the IPL in 2022, making it the only second edition of the league to have ten teams.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is busy preparing and plotting ahead of the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Notably, the upcoming season is significant since it will witness major modifications to the competition. While two new teams will enter the picture, the blockbuster auction will see several sides undergo changes. Meanwhile, it has been rumoured that the IPL’s already-delayed media rights tender will take even longer. The Indian cricket body had stated that it will be done as soon as the two new IPL franchises were named in late October. However, according to recent developments, it may only arrive next month.
