The Board of Control for Cricket in India is reportedly considering Hyderabad as a backup venue for IPL matches as cases of COVID continues to climb in Mumbai. With the tournament only a few days away, the Board is nevertheless confident that matches will be conducted as per schedule, say media reports.

In Mumbai, despite announcing a weekend lockdown, the government reportedly assured BCCI that it won't affect the match schedules. The IPL teams have already reached Mumbai and have been reportedly put up at secure locations.

A BCCI official told a sports portal that even if there's a lockdown, the teams are in bio bubbles, and the event itself is closed-door. Hyderabad has been named as a backup only if the situation "goes out of hand."
