After the controversy over CVC Capital vanquishing the bid for Ahmedabad’s IPL franchise, the lawyers of the investment firm and the BCCI are reportedly analysing over finding suitable terminology for the agreement to be signed between both.

While the ‘right words’ have already been accepted, there will be a obstruction in signing the agreement.

According to a report, the hamper could have a direct effect on when the IPL 2022 Mega Auction will be held. Once the CVC issue is solved, the two owners of the new franchises, based out of Ahmedabad and Lucknow, will be given a time of at least two weeks to sign the players.

Whilst the cricket board wishes that the auction will be held on February 12th and 13th, if there is a need, it will not hesitate in rescheduling it by 7-10 days.

The dates will only be vouched following the agreement with CVC is signed.

Moreover, in the midst of rising cases of COVID-19 in India, BCCI could hold the entire IPL 2022 in Mumbai across three stadiums – Wankhede, Brabourne and DY Patil Stadium.

There are rumours of starting the league in late March.

The entire IPL 2020 and the second leg of IPL 2021 were held in UAE because of the COVID breakout in India. And there’s a chance that the BCCI may turn to the middle-eastern country one more time depending on the COVID situation.
