In these unprecedented times, BCCI(Board Of Control For Cricket In India) has decided to suspend IPL 2020, till further notice. Human life is a top priority for the government as well as the BCCI, so seeing the current situation it seems very difficult to restart IPL this year.
BCCI, team owners, broadcaster are surely to incurr a big loss but there is nothing more important than human life. All the stake holders of the IPL are on the same table. The IPL was scheduled to begin from 29th May but the coronavirus pandemic resulted in postponement of the IPL.
There were many debates about organising IPl behind closed doors and in only two to three venues but realistically it was not possible. The Global Pandemic has spread across the world, and IPL is watched across the globe and is known for overseas players.
This year it seems difficult for BCCI and IPL to get a window, as the scheduled is packed with World T20 in October and the ongoing World Test Championship. After the cases comes to zero then only BCCI could think of organising the IPL. On a press release, released by IPL it is mentioned, “BCCI will keep monitoring the ongoing situation and will be in close contact with the stakeholders and the government, and will work on the start date of IPL.”
