All 10 teams have played at least 7 matches each and we are into the second half of the IPL 2022 league stage.

The decision was taken on Saturday by the Apex Council of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) which also confirmed that the Women’s Twenty20 Challenge will be held in Lucknow.

The previous two seasons were either played behind closed doors or had limited capacity due to the Covid-19 pandemic. For the 2022 season, during the league phase, which is being played only at four grounds in Maharashtra, initially, the IPL had allowed 25% crowds. Later that was increased to 50% as the general covid-19 situation in India has gotten relatively better.

“As far as the men’s IPL knockout stage matches are concerned, it would be held in Kolkata and Ahmedabad, with 100% attendance allowed for the matches to be played after the league stage finishes on May 22,” Sourav Ganguly, the BCCI president, said.

Ganguly also confirmed that the three-team Women’s T20 Challenge will be held in Lucknow from May 24 to 28. The three-team Women’s T20 Challenge, comprising teams Trailblazers, Supernovas and Velocity, will be hosted by the Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association (UPCA) and it will be held in Lucknow. The squads will be picked after the ongoing women’s Twenty20 Trophy in May.
