“This match will be a momentous occasion as the 15th edition of the IPL will welcome fans back to the stadiums after a brief hiatus owing to the pandemic,” an IPL release stated.
“The matches will be played across stadiums in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai & Pune with an audience occupancy rate of 25% as per COVID-19 protocols,” the release added.
IPL 2022 is set to start with the defending champions Chennai Super Kings taking on the last year’s runners-up Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede Stadium on March 26th.
The matches will be played across stadiums in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai & Pune with an audience occupancy rate of 25% as per COVID-19 protocols. 20 matches each will be held at Wankhede Stadium & DY Patil Stadium, 15 matches each at Brabourne and MCA International Stadium, Pune.
Last year the league was marred with COVID-19. It was played behind closes doors across a few venues in India but was suspended mid-way in May after multiple COVID-19 cases were reported in its bio-bubble. The remaining matches were then played in the UAE in September-October. The 2020 edition of the league was also played in the UAE. This year, the organizers are hopeful of the tournament to transpire in a smooth fashion and also ensuring the safety of the players.
