The Board of Control for Cricket in India escaped from suffering a massive loss of up to Rs 2,500 crore after they confirmed that they would host the second leg of the Indian Premier League in the United Arab Emirates. Earlier, speculations were rife that BCCI would suffer staggering losses if they fail to host the IPL this year.

However, the BCCI and IPL Governing Council held a meeting where further discussions and advanced talks led them to come to a firm conclusion that they would host the rest of the 31 fixtures in the UAE. The second leg of the IPL 2021 starts on September 19 with the final scheduled on October 15.

Meanwhile, there is one thing that is constantly bothering BCCI officials which is the unavailability of foreign players. Earlier, some overseas players expressed that they would not feature in the second leg of the IPL due to a jam-packed international calendar.

England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) director Ashley Giles was very particular that the board wouldn't let their players feature in the upcoming leg. The same development was confirmed by Bangladesh Cricket Board as well. BCB officials took a similar route as confirmed by their president Nazmul Hassan.

On the other end of the spectrum, Cricket Australia are yet to confirm the development regarding the same. Meanwhile, CPL fixtures are coinciding with the IPL fixtures too. BCCI officials are in talks with CPL to prepone the tournament such that Caribbean players would be available for the second leg of IPL.
