IPL 2022 to be held in India, confirms BCCI secretary

IPL being one of the biggest T20 leagues in the world will be back in India next year as it was confirmed by BCCI secretary Jay Shah at the Chennai Super Kings felicitation function on Sunday.

In 2021 first season of IPL was held in India but the moment cases started increasing inside the biosecure bubble BCCI decided to halt the marquee event and the next leg of the same IPL happened in UAE in the month of September-October. Taking about the last season of IPL was won by MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings and with this victory against Kolkata Knight Riders in the night of the final they went on to win fourth IPL title under talismanic skipper Dhoni.

The next season of IPL will have two more franchises in the form of Lucknow and Ahmedabad as the owners of these two respective franchises spend around 12,000 crores approx to associate themselves in the world’s biggest T20 tournament.

As Every franchise is allowed to retain only four players ahead of the mega auction for the next edition so that will be interesting to see which Indian and overseas players will be retained for the next edition whether SRH will retain David Warner for next season or not especially what he has done in the recently concluded T2o World Cup 2021 will we see in RCB next year and not just as a player but also as a leader.

IPL has immensely helped Indian cricket as every year new exciting talent comes up and these youngsters are so prepared playing in cash-rich league in front of a huge audience where they share a dressing room with overseas players the moment they step into Blue color they are ready from ball one be it Harshal Patel or Venkatesh Iyer these two are playing debut series for India against Black Caps but it seems that they are not in awe of this big stage instead they treat it as a normal match which itself is the best thing for Indian cricketing ecosystem.
