The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly on Monday said that there is still no clarity on whether crowds will be allowed into the stadiums for IPL 2021 and added that the board was monitoring the situation of the Covid-19 crisis in the country.

He, however, confirmed that the tournament, that is scheduled to begin on April 9, will begin without the crowds and said that the call on whether people will be allowed into the stadium will be taken later on.

Ganguly added that even last time when the Indian Premier League was staged in the UAE, it began without the crowds and the initial plan was to let people in later on, but looking at how well the tournament was going the board decided to not take a risk by throwing it open to the public.

“We don't know yet, it depends on the situation. (Last time in) Dubai also it was the same. We started closed doors and we expected it to open up to the crowds, but since it went so well, we did not take the risk of bringing the crowds back,” Ganguly said.
