IPL franchise Delhi Capitals co-owner Partha Jindal, all the matches of the opening season of the world's most expensive cricket league could be held in Mumbai this year. The knock-out session can then be held in Ahmedabad. Jindal said that according to what I am hearing and seeing, England can come on tour. If the entire Indian Super League can be held in Goa, if it can be Vijay Hazare Trophy and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, I don't think IPL should go out of India.
Partha Jindal said that I think the management is considering that the league level be held in the same city and the playoffs are done on another ground. There is a lot of discussions that all league matches should be held in one city, Mumbai as there are three grounds (Wankhede Stadium, Brabron Stadium, and DY Patil Stadium). Apart from this, there are also many facilities for practice. Knockout matches should be held in Ahmedabad. All this is still unconfirmed but I am saying what I hear. Jindal also said that if all league-level matches are held in Mumbai, then the Delhi team will also benefit. Apart from captain Shreyas Iyer, Ajinkya Rahane and Prithvi Shaw are from Mumbai.
At the same time, Mentor VVS Laxman of Sunrisers Hyderabad said that things are not decided yet about the venue. Kolkata Knight Riders chief executive Venky Mysore reiterated Laxman's point. Punjab Kings head coach Anil Kumble said that he has chosen the team keeping in mind all the grounds and circumstances. Let me tell you, the auction for this season was held in Chennai.
