IPL 2021: Remaining league should be held in UK in September, says Peitersen

The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League has been suspended due to Coronavirus. However, BCCI is still engaged in efforts to hold the remaining matches of IPL 2021 in the near future. Meanwhile, former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen has suggested the BCCI to organize the remaining matches of IPL 2021 in England. In fact, Pietersen wants this year’s postponed matches of the Indian Premier League to be held in England in September instead of the UAE.

Former England cricket team captain Kevin Pietersen believes that the decision to move IPL 2021 to Britain will be the best. Because the five-match Test series on the Indian team’s tour of England will end on September 14 and after that there will be time for it.

“There is a window in September after the England vs India Test series has finished. All the best Indian players would already be there, and all of the best English players would be available as well,” Pietersen wrote in a column for Betway.

“Mid-to-late September is the most beautiful time in the UK. They could use Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham and the two London grounds. There is also a good chance that crowds will be allowed in the grounds and there will be great atmospheres,” Pietersen wrote.

“The IPL has been to the UAE; it’s been to South Africa, and I think England would now be the perfect place to house the remaining fixtures.”

Prior to Pietersen’s statement, Middlesex, Surrey, Warwickshire, and Lancashire have expressed interest in tabling the remaining 31 matches of the IPL. It was postponed indefinitely after several players and support staff were infected with the coronavirus in the IPL bio-bubble.
