New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Saturday announced that the remainder of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 will be played in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The Board decided to organise the remaining matches of IPL in the months of September and October considering the monsoon season in India in those months.

The decision was taken at BCCI’s Special General Meeting held virtually on Saturday. 

IPL 2021 had been postponed on May 4 after several players and support staff across teams tested positive for COVID-19.

As many as 29 matches were held this season before the tournament came to a halt. After two players in the KKR camp — Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier — tested positive, KKR’s match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on May 3 was postponed. Soon after, with players from other teams also testing positive, the League was postponed altogether.
