India Confident of Hosting IPL 2021 Cricket Tournament

The coronavirus pandemic has created a huge impact on cricket throughout the world. Cricket had resumed in England after 3 months in a bio-secure environment.  Because of the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in India, it took a long time for the country to restart their cricket.

That’s the reason why IPL 2020 was shifted to UAE.

Earlier BCCI had signed an MOU with Emirates cricket board stating that if things don’t become better in India then IPL 2021 and England series can be hosted in UAE. But now, since the vaccine has been rolled out and cases have started to gradually decrease, India is in a stable condition to host international matches as well as the IPL.

After a gap of 11 months, international cricket is finally back in India. India is hosting England for a full-fledged series of 4 tests, 5 T20I’s and 3 ODI’s.

IPL 2021 is also lined-up in India from April 11th (tentative).

IPL finally returns to India as BCCI confirmed that IPL will mostly be held in India and there are no back-up options planned so far.  BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal said- “We are working on having the IPL in India and we are hopeful that we would be able to organize it. We are not even thinking of a back-up also at this point in time, we are wanting to do it here. India is probably safer than UAE at this point. Hopefully, the situation remains stable and keep improving and we will have it here.”

Preparations before the start of cricket season in India

Before starting the England vs India series, the BCCI had organized a domestic T20 tournament – Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in a bio-secure environment. This tournament was held from 10th January to 31st January across 7 venues in India.

The England Vs India series will also be played in a bio secure bubble where the players have to undergo 6 days of quarantine to get into the bubble. BCCI is also working with the government to get the players vaccinated “It is tough but at least this way we are getting to play. We are working on getting our players vaccinated. The government’s directive is that frontline workers and the most vulnerable will be the first to get vaccinated, but we are in touch with the government to get our players vaccinated,” – said Arun Dhumal

Will the fans be allowed in the stands for the England series and IPL?

BCCI has spoken with the state government and Tamil Nadu Cricket Association to allow at least 50% of the crowd from the 2nd match held at Chepauk. Also 50% fans will also be allowed in Motera stadium, Ahmedabad for the 3rd and 4th match.

The IPL is likely to be hosted in Maharashtra where there are three stadiums in Mumbai (Including Wankhade) and one stadium in Pune. The play-offs will be held in Ahmedabad Motera Stadium. Full capacity crowd could be allowed in the stadiums for all the IPL matches. If stadiums are not full, fans will still be able to watch and bet online on any of the 2021 IPL matches. 

Will be ready to host the ICC T20 World Cup 2021?

After successfully hosting the IPL season and playing bilateral series against various countries, India will be well prepared to host 12 cricket nations for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Hopefully all the players and respective boards corporate with India and help in the smooth conduct of the tournament.

What Is CBD Oil?

CBD oil is one of the major buzzwords in the health and wellness industry right now. You have probably seen it being advertised as an active ingredient in many products from topical creams to chewy edibles. These ads pique the interest of millions of viewers because of their fantastic promises. You may even be thinking about making a purchase right now. Before you order, try to learn more about this substance, its benefits, and other aspects that are of concern to a potential user. The following information is taken from Zen Labs CBD Oil and should improve your ability to make smart decisions:

Intoxication

What is CBD oil? CBD is a shorthand for the compound known as cannabidiol. This comes from the Cannabid sativa plants like hemp and marijuana. There tends to be more CBD oil in hemp. Another reason to use hemp is that there are very low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC compared to marijuana. This is important to those who may be fearful of psychoactive effects. Using CBD oil should not induce a high on the vast majority of people. However, there may be a few who will experience intoxication for reasons not yet known. Individuals who are taking this for the first time should do so under medical supervision to ensure safety.

Regulation

Laws differ in various jurisdictions so be sure to check the relevant regulations in your area. It is legal to grow hemp according to federal law so it should be alright to use hemp products including CBD. However, there may be restrictions depending on the state where you are in. For example, some states have declared CBD and marijuana as legal for recreational and medicinal purposes in California, Colorado, Michigan, Vermont, Maine, Alaska, and more. Others limit the legal forms and some will only allow CBD oil. A few states such as South Dakota, Nebraska, and Idaho made these illegal.

Benefits

Be careful when selecting CBD products. You can’t believe every claim because many of these are unregulated. The FDA has approved CBD for use in treating specific kinds of epilepsy. Numerous studies support the fact that CBD oil is beneficial for those with this condition. Ask your doctor for more information about this if you are interested. As for other uses, there are anecdotal evidence to suggest that CBD can provide relief for body pains. For example, it is often used by those dealing with osteoarthritis and back pain. However, deeper research will have to be conducted in order to see just how effective it really is.

Some people try CBD oil as a means of managing their anxiety. It may be able to help the body calm down by reducing the stress on the nervous system. With individuals feeling more relaxed, they do not have to go on the fight or flight mode that makes anxiety so crippling. Just be sure to remember that it is not approved for any mental health issues yet. More studies will have to be made before it can be considered as a reliable remedy. Side effects will also have to be investigated.

CBD oil holds a lot of promise so the buzz around it is quite understandable. It has already proven itself to be useful in treating epilepsy. It might become a standard treatment for other types of ailments in the future, although it is far from a cure-all.
