Spectators Likely to Return to the field for IPL 2021 in UAE
The BCCI and the Emirates Cricket Board are considering spectators’ return to the field for the rest of the IPL 2021 to be held in the UAE. A senior Middle Eastern official said spectators could get a chance to watch the game while sitting on the field with the corona vaccine. However, an official of the Emirates Cricket Board said that in that case, 50 percent of the spectators will be able to enter the field.
The Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) was postponed in the middle of the tournament due to the attack of several cricketers and support staff. However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to host the rest of the IPL in the UAE in September-October.
There are 31 matches left in the IPL. According to the rules of the United Arab Emirates, spectators who have been vaccinated will be able to watch the game from the field. The spectators can return to the IPL by following these rules. Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) member secretary Joy Shah and vice-president Rajiv Shukla visited Dubai on Monday to explore the UAE’s facilities.
