There have been various rumors about the IPL since last March. If all went well, the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League would have started on March 29 and ended by now. But field cricket is already closed due to coronavirus. As a result, this year’s IPL event was not held on the field.
As the IPL was not held on time, uncertainty has arisen around the IPL. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has not announced any official decision. However, this time the chairman of the board Sourav Ganguly has said that this year there will be IPL. That is why they are willing to take all possible ways.
The T20 World Cup is scheduled to be played in Australia in October this year. But the coronavirus epidemic has made everything uncertain. The IPL did not start on time. The BCCI was waiting for the IPL so that it would not clash with the T20 World Cup schedule.
But in a letter to state cricket bodies on Wednesday, the BCCI president wrote, “We are making every effort to host the IPL this year. If you have to play on a field without spectators, that will be done. We are very optimistic and the BCCI will take a decision soon.
The BCCI has not been able to decide on their most lucrative domestic tournament due to indecision over the ICC T20 World Cup. Every effort is being made to bring cricket back to India. However, it is still at the domestic level. In the end, if the IPL is played in a spectator-free field to avoid corona infection, there will be financial loss and Joules will also lose this tournament.
