14th editon of IPL will be delayed minimum by 2 weeks vis a vis last IPL in India
BCCI is yet to announce the dates for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 14th edition. However, the latest England tour of India schedule has given a hint of when it IPL 2021 can start from.
IPL 2019 started on 23rd March and vis a vis – IPL 2021 will be delayed by minimum 2 weeks owing to the two month long England tour of India which will conclude on March 28th.
The BCCI recently announced the dates for India’s four-Test, five T20I and three ODI series against England. The two-month-long series begins from February 5 in Chennai for the first Test. The longest-format of the game ends on March 8.
It will be followed by T20I series which is scheduled from March 12 to 20. Following this, India and England play the ODI series which ends on March 28.
After this long and hectic series, it is likely that the players would want a small break before joining their respective IPL franchises for IPL 2021. Even franchises will also want their star players to fulfill commercial commitmments with sponsors.
BCCI will most likely decide to host the new edition after April 10. It would give the players some time to gel up with their supposedly new team members, if the proposed mega-auction takes place.
