Given the current situation, the only option left with BCCI was to consider hosting the remainder of the IPL 2021 at a later stage after ruling out any possibility to finish the tournament later in the month. With only 29 games completed out of 60, BCCI is mulling over the possibility of finishing the remaining IPL matches in the month of September.

The chairman of the IPL, Brijesh Patel didn’t rule out the possibility while adding, “Now we have to look for a window. If we get one, we will explore holding it. We’ll have to see if it is possible in September. We need to examine the plans of the ICC and other boards.”
Earlier, Cricket Journalist Anand Vasu had tweeted about setting up a fresh bubble in order to finish the tournament.
“The IPL has been suspended for the time being. Efforts on to set up a fresh bubble in Mumbai and look at a resumption. But, at the moment, it is far from certain that this will happen. #IPL,” Vasu tweeted.
