IPL 2021 – England counties offer to host remainder of IPL in September


MCC, Surrey, Warwickshire and Lancashire part of group; existing schedules remain a challenge

A group of English counties has offered to host the remainder of the IPL 2021 season in September this year.

The MCC, Surrey, Warwickshire and Lancashire, who are based at Lord’s, The Kia Oval (both London), Edgbaston (Birmingham) and Emirates Old Trafford (Manchester) respectively are understood to be part of the group who wrote to the ECB inviting them to extend the opportunity to the BCCI. The plans would see the tournament completed in around two weeks in the second half of September.

The subject is likely to come up at a virtual ICC meeting of the national chief executives scheduled for today.
