IPL 2021 Vanue : Preparation for IPL 2021 is on the jars. It is being told that the BCCI has selected a total of six places across the country for the IPL, where all the matches will be played. It is learned that the name of Hyderabad is not included in this list. While Hyderabad’s Sunrisers Hyderabad also plays in the IPL, Hyderabad has not been selected to host the IPL. Meanwhile, Telangana Industries and Information Technology Minister KT Rama Rao on Sunday appealed to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to also include Hyderabad to host IPL matches.

KTR’s appeal came after reports that Hyderabad was not included in the list of cities selected by the BCCI for the 14th edition of the IPL. Minister KT Rama Rao tweeted that in comparison to all metro cities of India, we have fewer cases of Kovid and we assure that all assistance will be given by the government. Such reports are coming out that BCCI has decided to limit IPL 2021 to only six cities. The home city of Sunrisers Hyderabad, Hyderabad has been excluded from this list. The BCCI has selected Chennai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Delhi and Mumbai to host IPL matches. It is surprising to be selected to host Mumbai as there has been an increase in Kovid cases in Maharashtra during the last few days.

Mumbai was added to this list on Saturday evening after the Maharashtra government gave permission to host matches in the city without an audience. The reason for not including Hyderabad in the list of hosts is unclear but there is a discussion that BCCI has ignored the city due to internal differences in Hyderabad Cricket Association (SCA). HCA President and former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin was reportedly in Ahmedabad for the Test between India and England, where the venue of the IPL matches was decided.
