IPL 2022 schedule will start on March 26 with four venues, namely Brabourne Stadium, DY Patil Stadium, Wankhede Stadium and MCA Stadium playing host to the entire league stage. For the first time in the tournament's history, only two cities will host the league round.
Keeping the COVID-19 pandemic in mind, the BCCI has allotted IPL 2022 matches to Mumbai and Pune only. While Wankhede Stadium and MCA Stadium have regularly hosted IPL matches in the recent past, the Brabourne Stadium and the DY Patil IPL venue have not hosted matches so frequently.
There was a time when the Mumbai Indians played home matches at different IPL venues in Mumbai. But in the last few seasons, they have hosted other IPL teams at the Wankhede Stadium only.
Meanwhile, the MCA Stadium was home to the Rising Pune Supergiant in 2016 and 2017. In 2018, the Chennai Super Kings played some home matches in Pune.
