The 14th edition of India Premier League is all set to be played in its original window. And for this, the players’ auction will take place on February 18 in Chennai. The news was confirmed by IPL’s official Twitter account on Twitter via a tweet. Notably, the 2020 edition of the cash-rich league had played in the UAE in September-November due to the global pandemic novel COVID-19.
Meanwhile, Team India will play a home series against England from next month and its smooth conduct of this will make things easy for the league to be hosted at home. However, the player retention deadline has ended on January 20 and the trading window will close on February 4 as well.
