The second phase of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 will take place from September 19 to October 15. Rajiv Shukla, General Secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), confirmed this. The second phase of the IPL will take place in the UAE. The tournament was postponed on May 4 after the corona case emerged in the IPL bio bubble. Considering India’s corona epidemic, it was decided to relocate it from India to the UAE.
In the year 2020, the IPL was played in the UAE. Before the IPL 2021, 29 matches were played in India. The remaining 31 matches will be played in the UAE from September 15. According to the Times of India news, BCCI general secretary Rajiv Shukla said the IPL will be held from September 15 to October 15. The tournament will be played shortly before the T20 World Cup. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has not officially announced its dates.

India is hosting the T20 World Cup. It can be transferred to the UAE. The BCCI has until June 28 to inform the ICC whether it is in a position to host the tournament. The corona epidemic in India is not completely under control. If the T20 World Cup starts on October 18, it will start 3 days after the IPL is over. The ICC said on Wednesday that there is no mandatory differential rule between domestic tournaments and tournaments. We will announce the date and location of the T20 World Cup in July.
On the other hand, when Shukla was asked if there was a shortage of IPSs to go to the T20 World Cup, Shukla said it would not be a problem as non-Test playing countries could be involved at an early stage. There are 16 teams in T20 World Cup 2021, including five non-Test playing nations.
