- IPL 2022 will witness more than 25% crowd
- Every new day will host more spectators than the past day
In recent developments, it has been learned the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) is likely to allow more than 25% of the crowd during the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022). It has also been reported the number of spectators will rise with the passing days, which means every new game will witness some more watchers than a day before.
The IPL 2022 is scheduled to kick-start on 26th March and will be played across Maharashtra’s venues. The Round Robin will compose 70 games alongside three playoffs and a final concluding the cash-rich league on 29th May.
This time, the IPL will be the 10-team affair following the addition of two new teams; Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans, which will make it even more exciting.
“That is our understanding. Going forward the stadiums will have more fans than initial games. With Covid cases coming down by the day, we are hoping more people will be in the stands,” said an office-bearer of the BCCI as quoted by Cricbuzz.
After two years, the IPL will finally be staged entirely within its backyard. Due to the COVID rising cases, the extravaganza was moved to the UAE. However, it was speculated the 2022 season might move to South Africa, but despite BCCI’s willingness to stay within India, the happy schedule was revealed earlier this month.
All the ten teams went under a two-day mega auction to finalize their squads. It will be exciting to see if Mumbai Indians will lift their fifth trophy or will there be a new winner. It must be noted MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings (CSK) won the last edition and will try to come equal to Mumbai plucking their fifth title this year.
