The remaining matches of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, which was suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic’s second wave, will be played from September 19 to October 15 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced on Sunday.

The tournament was initially held in India in April-May and was suspended on May 4, just over the halfway stage, after multiple players and support staff tested positive for the coronavirus.

After the suspension, Star Sports informed advertisers to pay only for the 29 matches that had been played. They were even given the flexibility to opt out of the ad deals when the League resumed.
