The Board of Control for Cricket in India is contemplating starting the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League from March 27, almost a week ahead of the planned kick-off of the tournament. As per the initial discussions, the BCCI wants to hold the tournament in Maharashtra and the first game is likely to be held in Mumbai, according to Cricbuzz. BCCI is leaving no stone unturned to conduct the tournament in India itself and Mumbai and Pune, with four grounds close to each other, are emerging as possible venues.
