Currently, Sourav Ganguly is in Dubai, where he is looking after the preparations for the remaining matches of the Indian Premier League 2021. Earlier, the former Team India captain posted a picture on his official Instagram account on Thursday, in which he is seen sitting in a hotel in Dubai. Ganguly wrote in the caption with this photo, “Dubai has freed me from the lockdown.”
The BCCI postponed the IPL 2021 being played in India due to the second wave of Kovid-19. On May 4, the board halted the season after just 29 matches after several cases of coronavirus were reported within the tournament’s bio-bubble. After this all the players went back to their country and home. At present, there are 31 matches left in the tournament and Ganguly is in Dubai to ensure that these are organized.
