Now the board is looking for a fresh window for the T20 league. However, it will not be easy given the busy schedule.

Next month, Team India is to play the final of the World Test Championship in England. After this, the team also has to play a five-match Test series in August. The Test series is scheduled to begin on August 12. Under the protocol, players will have to stay in Quarantine for 14 days. In such a situation, organizing before the Test series will be difficult. The Test series ends on September 14. The T20 World Cup is proposed in October-November.

IPL Chairman Brajesh Patel said that the remaining 31 T20 League matches can be done before or after the World Cup. For this, we are looking for a window. Organizing around the T20 World Cup will also be easier because players from all over the world will be in one place during this time. If the World Cup takes place in India, they will remain here. If the World Cup takes place in the UAE, then all the players will remain in the UAE. The board also conducted the last IPL season in the UAE.
