The IPL 2022 competition was held in Maharashtra in a centralized manner to avoid travel during the Covid-19 pandemic. Only the playoff stage was held in Kolkata and Ahmedabad. But as the end of the pandemic approaches, the BCCI is returning to its old format.

“The past two years have been hit by COVID and the most important thing is that despite COVID we managed to organize the tournament and this time we closed it with great hype in Kolkata and Ahmedabad,” said Ganguly.
