The 2022 season of Indian Premier League has been confirmed to be entirely played in India due to decline in covid cases in the country. But, in view of the situation getting escalated quickly, only 4 neighboring venues were decided by the BCCI for conducting the IPL in a safe manner. The team will get transferred from hotel to stadiums/ practice grounds from bus, and no flights will be used during the whole season.
