IPL venues to be confirmed in a week or two: MI owner Ambani

MI owner Akash Ambani feels that the venues for the IPL 2022 season may come out in a week or two. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) had hosted the 2020 and second half of 2021 editions of the IPL.

But with numbers in Covid-19 third wave in India receding, there is a possibility of the tournament being held between Mumbai and Pune entirely to reduce travel time and maintain a bio-bubble environment.
