Sports Desk: The 30th match of IPL 2021 between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore was canceled on Monday when two KKR members were found to be Corona positive. Now according to reports, another big decision can be taken on IPL and it can be shifted to Mumbai in view of Corona crisis in Ahmedabad and Delhi.
According to a news report, the IPL could be shifted to Mumbai by the week. This would mean that Kolkata and Bangalore, who were to host the final leg of the league stage of the IPL, would not be able to host matches.
Simultaneously, the schedule of matches can also change as more double headers may be the way forward. The final, to be played on May 30, may take place in early June. The biggest hurdle facing the BCCI, the top cricket board in India, is the creation of bio-bubbles to ensure the safety of the players. All three stadiums in Mumbai, Wankhede, DY Patil, and Brabourne are in good shape as the first leg of the lucrative league was held there.
It is understood that the BCCI called in the top hotels in Mumbai on Monday and inquired about the availability of how efficiently they could execute the SOPs required to create the bubble.
