India continues to witness more than a lakh fresh cases daily. The third wave is already here and it's again, affecting various spheres of life, including sport as well.
As per the latest news reports on Sunday, the BCCI is thinking to take the IPL 2022 abroad if the COVID situation in India doesn't improve however, that being said, the prime objective will still remain to host IPL in the subcontinent itself.
BCCI's priority is the IPL 2022 mega auction. They are hopeful that they can have the next edition of the IPL entirely in India, but if the same cannot be done, only then would they consider taking the IPL abroad.
As per reports, the mega auction of IPL 2022 will be a two-day affair that will be hosted in Bengaluru on February 12 and 13. After that, BCCI's attention will turn to the West Indies and Sri Lanka's tours of India.
A final decision to host the IPL might only arrive after India hosts the two nations in February and March.
