TNPL set to kick start on July 19 - Reports

The report further stated that it will be a closed-door affair due to the pandemic with Chennai being the main hub

The postponed Tamil Nadu Premier League, which was supposed to be played in June before being disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, will now take place in the July-August window, with the tentative date being fixed as of July 19. According to Cricbuzz, the tournament will conclude on August 15. 

The report further stated that it will be a closed-door affair due to the pandemic with Chennai being the main hub. The association has also shortlisted Tirunelveli, Dindigul, Coimbatore, and Salem for hosting the matches of the eight-team event. 

"We are planning three phases for the league. We intend to start the league in Chennai because the Covid cases are down in the city. Basing on the government's approval, the matches will be held in two other venues and we will come back to Chennai for the final," the TNPL official said.

The restart plan comes after the formal go-ahead from the apex council of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in April when it permitted the state associations to conduct the leagues on the conditions that it doesn't clash with IPL and abide by the BCCI rules.
