The Secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Jay Shah, confirmed on Saturday that the IPL 2022 season will start in the last week of March and that the season will end in May. “I am pleased to confirm that the 15th season of the IPL will start in the last week of March and will last until the end of May. A majority of the team owners expressed the wish that the tournament would be held in India. BCCI has always been excited about organizing the 2022 edition that will see two new teams – Ahmedabad and Lucknow – in India,” Shah said in an official statement.
“I can tell you that we will leave no stone unturned to ensure that IPL remains in India. The BCCI has made no concessions to the health and safety of its stakeholders in the past and will be working simultaneously on Plan B since the COVID-19 19 situation with new variants remain liquid.
