The dates of the IPL 2021 can be announced by the BCCI at any time. It is being speculated that after the ongoing test series between Indian & England. Which ends on 8th March .
But meanwhile, there are reports that the co-owner of Kings 11 Punjab (now Punjab Kings), Preity Zinta, who is seen cheering her team in every match on the field during IPL matches and also making headlines, is angry with the BCCI.
The reason for the resentment is the decision by the BCCI Governing Council in which they have reserved 6 places for IPL 2021 venues and matches and it does not name the home ground of the Punjab Kings. However, this is also bad news for Rajasthan Royals and Hyderabad as the domestic field of these two teams is not named in the list.
Punjab Kings officials have conveyed their displeasure to the BCCI. They want some matches among his audience on their home pitch in Mohali. There is no doubt that the home team gets the benefit of the match on the home ground.
But the pressure of organizing the IPL 2021 in India amidst the growing cases of Corona and keeping every franchise happy is proving to be a grudge for the BCCI.
It is worth noting here that Punjab Kings spent 22 crores in the IPL auction on February 19 and bought two Australian players Jhye Richardson (14 crores) and Riley Meredith for 8 crores. Also, this team buy un-capped player Shahrukh Khan in a whooping amount of 5. 25 crores.
