Delhi, BCCI has selected Wankhade stadium, Brabourne Stadium of Mumbai, DY Patil Stadium, and Gahunje Stadium of Pune for the upcoming IPL season. Well BCCI is likely to rethink this matter.
As many franchises have raised the problem of Mumbai Indians taking undue advantages and playing on their home ground, where they’re mostly unbeaten. Well, other franchises said they can deal with Mumbai Indians playing on other grounds like Gahunje, DY Patil, or even on Brabourne Stadium.
What Franchises said
“None of the other franchises are getting home matches. It will be unfair if MI plays a lot of matches at Wankhade, which has been their den for years. The franchises have raised this concern. The franchisees don’t have an issue with Mumbai Indians playing bulk of their matches at DY Patil stadium of Pune. Even the Brabourne stadium is fine. Hopefully, BCCI will look into the matter,” a franchise source said.
Last year, BCCI ensured none of the teams played at their home venue in the first leg of the IPL. Franchises agreed on this.
Well, managing and creating practice grounds for 10 teams is not going to be an easy task for BCCI.
Well, managing and creating practice grounds for 10 teams is not going to be an easy task for BCCI. While there has been an assumption that the second half of the IPL can be moved into other venues, only after seeing the condition of covid in India.
For now, IPL is all set to be played in Maharastra from the last week of March. For the first time, we will be seeing ten teams competing against each other.
