In India, there has been no improvement in the situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and there is little sign of a slowdown in the death toll. Keeping in mind the same, the Indian Cricket Control Board (BCCI) has some problems in hosting the Indian Premier League (IPL). The T20 competition was originally scheduled to start on March 29, but it must be postponed indefinitely.
IPL Council Chairman Brijesh Patel said that BCCI is currently waiting for specific news from the ICC around the T20 World Cup. This large event is scheduled to start in mid-October, and there are still about four months left. ICC is still willing to wait to watch.
At the same time, BCCI is also looking for a window for IPL around September and October. Patel also said that if the situation in India does not improve during this time, management will not mind moving IPL to another country.
“We are ready for the IPL. However, only after the T20 World Cup officially announced, we can officially start the planning timetable. For our part, we have designated a window for the game from September to October.” India Times ( TOI) To quote Patel.
“We have to observe the next month’s situation from the perspective of COVID. We don’t mind moving IPL partially or fully to another country. He added.
Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have expressed their desire to host the IPL. Among them, the UAE seems to be the leader, as early as 2014 has already hosted a cash-rich league. The stadiums in Dubai and Abu Dhabi are also far away from the city, so it is easier to follow social alienation agreements and others.
As India’s Sri Lanka tour was canceled, Indian cricket recently suffered another blow. The Blue Man plans to play three T20Is and many ODIs.
