BCCI has also decided to call a meeting with all the franchise owners to discuss alternate plans amid Covid scare. It is quite clear that the BCCI is not in a mood to host IPL 2022 outside India. But the fear around Omicron variant might put a break on some of their plans.

“The meeting will be mainly introductory in nature with the BCCI on-boarding the owners of the two new teams – Lucknow and Ahmedabad. They are also exploring the idea of holding the whole tournament just in Mumbai and Pune or in the Gujarat cities of Ahmedabad, Baroda, and Rajkot if the Covid/Omicron situation worsens. The owners will be apprised of the alternatives as well as things to look forward to in the mega auction,”
