Meanwhile, the reports from BCCI claims that the season will resume on September 19th. As per the final talks with Emirates Cricket Board, BCCI has managed to get a 25-day window to host the remaining games. According to this, the final will be played on October 15th.

“The discussions went really well and with ECB already giving us the oral nod to host the event ahead of the BCCI SGM, it was about closing the deal over the last week. The first game after the season resumes will be held on September 19 while we will have the final on October 15. The BCCI was always keen on a 25-day window to finish the remaining matches,” a BCCI official told ANI.

Further, the board is finding out all the possible ways to get back the overseas players from different boards. With the hectic international fixtures and ICC T20 World Cup, major boards like England Cricket Board are not ready to allow their players to participate in the second leg.

“The discussions have started and we are keeping fingers crossed that the foreign players will be mostly available. If a couple of them do not manage to turn up, we shall then decide on the future course of action. But keeping fingers crossed for now and hoping to have an action-packed end to the IPL 2021 in UAE,” the official revealed.

“What we were made aware after the BCCI SGM is that the board will be speaking to the foreign boards and check on the availability of the foreign cricketers. We are confident that the BCCI will find the best possible solution and honestly it is a matter of the BCCI officials speaking to the respective board officials, so we should wait to hear from the board on this.”
