IPL 2022 Mega Auction: BCCI plans to delay, organise entire league only in Mumbai because of COVID-19 spread

The BCCI is preparing itself for possible delay in auction due to a surge in the COVID 19 spread. The auction is scheduled for February 12-13. The decision to postpone the auction will not actually be due to COVID-19 but to chalk out the right agreement between the American company CVC and their ownership of Ahmedabad franchise. The BCCI has already postponed the domestic tournaments, like Ranji Trophy, due to a surge in COVID-19 cases in India. It is also considering a preponement of the T20 league, while potential venues including Mumbai are also ready for discussion.

According to the website, BCCI is preparing a ‘Plan B’ for the upcoming 15th Season of IPL. Reportedly, BCCI is considering Mumbai as the only venue to host the entire edition of the tournament.
