Four English counties have made an offer to the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) for hosting the remaining matches of the season. Notably, the world’s cash richest league has been coiled up seeking the poor COVID-19 health scenarios in India.
The league has been down and dusted with 29 matches and 31 more games to go. As the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) looks to recommence the event within India as soon as possible, the authorities consider the widow of September as no other month grants a clear vacancy as per pre-decided schedules.
However, the situation in India is worsening day by day with already over a million cases and deaths in the figure of thousands. This might be a tackle for the BCCI to resume the league inside the country.
Taking advantage of the opportunity, English counties, named Lancashire, Warwickshire, The MCC, and Surrey have written to the England Cricket Board (ECB) to give a green signal to their applications passing onto BCCI.

According to different sources, the decision might be taken during an upcoming virtual meeting designated by the executives of the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday.
