IPL 2022 league stage was held in a centralised manner in Maharashtra to avoid travelling during Covid-19 pandemic. Only the playoff stage was held in Kolkata and Ahmedabad. But now that the pandemic is nearing its end, the BCCI will revert to the old format.

“The last two years have been affected by COVID and the biggest thing is that despite COVID, we managed to host the tournament and this time, we finished it with great hype in Kolkata and Ahmedabad,” Ganguly said.
