The IPL has been held at only a few venues since the outbreak of COVID19 in 2020 as the lucrative league unfolded behind closed doors across three venues in UAE — Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi.
In 2021 too, the tournament was held across four venues — Delhi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Chennai.
However, with the pandemic under control, the cash-rich league will return to its old format in which each team plays one home and one away match. “The next season of men’s IPL will also go back to the home and away format with all ten teams playing their home matches at their designated venues,” read a Ganguly’s note to state units.
The note gave them a “snapshot” of the ongoing domestic season. The BCCI is conducting a full-fledged domestic season for the first time since 2020 and all multi-day tournaments will also return to the traditional home and away format.
