IPL 2021 To Be Played Behind Closed Doors No Spectators Allowed
Among the franchise-based T20 leagues, the Indian Premier League has the highest number of spectators, which adds to the color of the tournament. However, due to the coronavirus, in IPL 2020 no spectators were allowed in the match, this time it is going to be the same, as IPL 2021 is to be played behind closed doors, Sourav Ganguly indicated.
The last IPL was held in the United Arab Emirates, with the tournament returning to India after a one-year break. However, even after the return of the IPL to the country, the game may have to be watched on television by Indian fans.
In the Test series against England, 50 percent of the spectators in Chennai and Ahmedabad sat in the gallery and watched Kohli’s game. With that in mind, it was thought that viewers would have a place in the gallery, albeit to a limited extent in the IPL, but Sourav Ganguly said that the bilateral series is no longer the same in the IPL.
In an interview with India Today, Ganguly said, “I don’t know yet (about audience attendance), it will depend on the situation. The IPL is a little different than the two-team series. There will be two teams playing on the field, and there will also be a few teams in practice. ”
The cricketers will have matches and practice at the same time as they are playing in a limited field. Mentioning that, Sourav said, “In many fields, the practice wickets are out. Where teams improve their routine practice because there will be regular games. In such a situation, if they are open to the public, they can go closer to the training teams, which can be a big risk. ”
The 14th edition of the IPL will be played at 6 venues from April 9 and the final of the tournament will be played on May 30. Due to the coronavirus situation, there will be no home and away matches this time, several teams will practice at the same venue.
