“There’s a mega star auction coming up next season, so it’s going to be exciting to see teams coming up with a new lineup next season.” Jay Shah added.

Last season’s IPL was held in India but the tournament was suspended and later shifted to the UAE due to Kovid’s confirmation of some players halfway through the tournament. MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings won the second quarter of the IPL in the UAE between September and October. Chennai beat Owen Morgan’s Kolkata Knight Riders in the final.
Fans have high hopes for the return of IPL to India. Spectator access was restricted as the Kovid pandemic crisis persisted. But with indications of a decline in the spread of Kovid in India, and with the Kovid vaccination being able to reach the masses, it is expected that next season’s IPL will be ahead of the packed galleries. Fans are hopeful of the ongoing T20 series between India and New Zealand. Both matches so far in the series took place in front of crowded galleries. Only those who have received at least one dose of the vaccine are admitted to the stadiums. It was also stipulated that the RTPCR must issue a negative certificate 48 hours prior to the match.
