IPL 2021 – Amid Covid concern, IPL may shift entirely to Mumbai


BCCI is believed to be working on a plan that will minimize risks, especially in travel

As Covid-19 cases emerge within the IPL, ESPNcricinfo understands the BCCI is looking at minimising risks and moving the rest of the tournament to Mumbai. If the plan is executed, the IPL could be shifted to Mumbai as early as this weekend.

This will necessitate a rejigged tournament schedule, with multiple double headers. There is also a likelihood of the IPL final being moved from May 30 to early June.
