Reports to be believed, the Board of Control for India (BCCI) plans to host the entirely of the (IPL) 2022 Indian Premier League in Maharashtra, keeping in mind the COVID-19 situation in the country.

Sources told TOI.

“On 5 January, Hemang Amin, BCCI’s interim CEO and the COO Officer of the IPL has approached Vijay Patil, MCA president in this regard, on the sidelines of the MCA Apex Council meetings. Subsequently, a few days later, Patil and Amin met Sharad Pawar at the NCP supremo’s residence,”
