Consequently,
the
BCCI
is
thinking
of
penciling
in
South
Africa
and
Sri
Lanka
as
potential
host
for
IPL
2022
in
the
same
window.

“We
can’t
be
dependent
on
UAE
all
the
time
so
we
decided
to
explore
more
options,
South
Africa’s
time
difference
also
works
out
well
for
the
players,”
a
BCCI
official
told
Indian
Express.

The
official
said
the
BCCI
is
very
pleased
with
the
bio-bubble
arrangements
put
in
place
by
Cricket
South
Africa
for
the
Indian
team
for
the
current
Test
and
ODI
series.

“The
place
where
the
team
was
staying
for
the
second
Test
is
spread
over
several
acres.

“There
were
walking
tracks
and
even
a
pond
on
the
property
and
that
has
made
things
easier
for
the
players
who
for
the
last
couple
of
years
or
so
have
been
confined
to
their
rooms
on
several
overseas
tours,”
said
an
official.

Sri
Lanka
is
also
alternate
venue
the
BCCI
considering
to
approach
as
the
number
of
cases
are
very
low
at
the
moment
in
the
Island
nation.
The
official
said
timing
of
both
South
Africa
and
Sri
Lanka
works
well
for
the
IPL.

It
may
be
recalled
that
the
IPL
was
shifted
to
South
Africa
in
2009
due
to
the
general
elections
in
India
before
moving
to
the
UAE
in
2014
and
2021
for
other
reasons
such
as
the
pandemic.

However,
the
BCCI
vice-president
Rajeev
Shukla
had
said
that
the
Board
will
try
to
conduct
the
IPL
2022
in
India
itself.

Shukla
had
told
the
news
agency
ANI
on
Tuesday:
“We
will
try
to
ensure
that
the
Indian
Premier
League
happens
and
in
India.
But
we
will
see
into
this
matter
again
in
March,
that
how
is
Covid
situation
then.”

But
at
this
stage,
all
these
will
come
to
effect
only
after
the
IPL
mega
auction
next
month.
