IPL 2022 Venues: Akash Ambani drops massive hint
The last two seasons of IPL have been held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), i.e. the entire 2020 season and the second half of IPL 2021. However, this year BCCI is looking to host the entire of the tournament in India. Considering the increase in COVID-19 cases, there are chances that the IPL tournament will be held in Mumbai and Pune, not only to reduce travel time but also to secure the bio bubble.
Mumbai Indians owner Akash Ambani told a virtual press conference that the venues for the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) season could be out in a week or two. He also felt that if the IPL was hosted in Mumbai, it might not be an advantage for them.
Akash Ambani said: “I’m not sure about the advantage of Mumbai Indians as we haven’t played in Mumbai for two years. So I can’t answer that question now. Of course, we will be happy to to play in Mumbai; it’s our hometown and we know the conditions well. But with IPL, it was said that they would confirm the venue in about a week or two. So we’re looking forward to hearing from them.
