IPL 2021 Points Table, Orange Cap, Purple Cap Holders List: The 14th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, has been postponed indefinitely as of Tuesday. The Indian cricket board is exploring the possibility of holding the remaining 31 matches of the IPL after the World T20 in October-November.
“We are looking to conduct the remaining IPL matches after we host the World T20 in October-November. If all goes well, we will host both the World T20 and the remainder of the IPL in India. The UAE is also an option,” a top BCCI official told The Indian Express.
