Big update on IPL 2024, second season may be out of India?: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is considering hosting the second phase of IPL 2024 outside India in view of the Lok Sabha elections. According to media reports, BCCI officials are in UAE and are exploring the possibility of organizing the second phase of IPL in the Gulf country. This decision is being taken because the date of Lok Sabha elections may clash with the second phase of IPL. Lok Sabha elections are to be announced this afternoon. Only after the elections are declared, BCCI can take a final decision on organizing the next phase of IPL outside the country.

Players will submit passports

Giving information about this matter, a BCCI official said that at present some top officials of the board are in Dubai and are looking at the possibility of organizing the second phase of IPL in Dubai. According to the report, some franchises have also asked the players to submit their passports. Earlier in 2014 also, the first phase of IPL was organized in UAE in view of the Lok Sabha elections. However, despite the Lok Sabha elections being held in 2019, the entire IPL season was held in India.

Only in 2009 was the IPL played entirely abroad (South Africa). Considering that the T20 World Cup will start just a few days after the IPL ends, the final is likely to be held on May 26. Whereas the ICC tournament will start on June 1 with the match between America and Canada.

BCCI had not announced the entire schedule

Due to non-announcement of Lok Sabha elections, BCCI did not announce the entire schedule of IPL 2024. The board had announced the schedule of the first phase of the 17th season of this popular tournament which included 21 matches. The first phase of the IPL will begin on March 22 with the match between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), while the final match of the first phase will be played between Lucknow Supergiants and Gujarat Titans on April 7.
