After ECB denied the BCCI’s approach for staging the remaining IPL 2021 matches UAE accepts the request. BCCI officially confirmed that the board will stage the remaining IPL 2021 matches in UAE as it has the experience of hosting them twice before.
“It was differently different to play half of the tournament. Looks like it is moving forward to the UAE, it was held very nicely last year there,” Boult said in a virtual press conference.
“If I’ll get a chance, I’ll be looking forward to finishing that campaign off myself,” he added.
The IPL 2021 was suspended in May as BCCI didn’t want to compromise on the safety of the players, support staff, and the other participants involved in organizing the tournament with an eye on the Covid-19 situation.
Boult admitted that things escalated quite quickly last month but the pacer was grateful to feature in the IPL 2021 before it was suspended.
“I suppose things obviously escalated pretty quickly over there. I made the decision to come home and get a bit of time with family,” said Boult.
“Very grateful in the first place to be involved in the IPL to get an opportunity to play on that stage. What happened was very unfortunate, I’m glad that I got out safely and can move forward now.”
Trent Boult who played in the first half of the IPL 2021 bags 8 wickets under his name while playing in all 7 matches so far.
