Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings, the top two teams of the shortened IPL this year, have expressed their interest in reaching the Middle East early to begin preparations for the second phase of the 2021 IPL. The CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan stated that the team wants to reach the UAE by August 15.
After this year’s IPL was postponed due to the COVID outbreak in India a few months ago, there has been uncertainty as to when the season will resume given the pandemic situation. However, the BCCI has announced that the rest of the IPL will be conducted in the UAE in September-October, just before the T20 World Cup. And now, according to the latest developments, the top two teams from this year’s shortened IPL, DC and CSK, are eager to reach the Middle East next month so that their preparations can start quickly.
Kasi Viswanathan has confirmed that the Chennai Super Kings, who were second in the points table this year, are keen to reach the UAE early and have even told the BCCI the same. While a Delhi Capitals official also confirmed that they also want to go to Dubai around the same time as the CSK.
“We want to be there by August 15, at the latest by August 20 and we have informed the BCCI that we want to be there by then. We hope to get the required permissions, without which the logistics plans will be difficult to execute,” said CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan, reported Cricbuzz
The new schedule was expected to come out on July 15, but the BCCI has yet to make it public. They are currently busy launching the Twenty20 World Cup. However, the IPL dates are expected to be announced once they return home. The second phase of the IPL is expected to begin on September 19-20 and end on October 15.
