India has reported more than 1.5 lakhs Covid-19 cases on Sunday out of which over 3500 cases were the highly transmissible Omicron variant of coronavirus. The BCCI is concerned about the entire situation and that’s why BCCI hasn’t declared a date or venue officially for the auctions.

BCCI is considering every available option to host the league in India but it’s key aim is to complete the auction first


As per reports, a BCCI official said “IPL Auctions will be in February 2nd Week. Bengaluru was the preferred venue but the final call will be taken after accessing the situation in next 7-10 days. We will inform all the franchises accordingly”

BCCI has postponed every other upcoming domestic tournament, Ranji Trophy included due to the pandemic. 2020-2021 IPL took place in UAE due to the ongoing pandemic, this year’s IPL may also have a foreign venue.

In the coming week, BCCI will be completing the formalities with CVC Capitals backed Ahmedabad franchise. The officials of the Ahmedabad franchise have already reached in Mumbai to sign the IPL franchise contract.
