The BCCI has closed the IPL indefinitely due to Corona’s push. Cricket is no bigger than human life. So this year’s IPL has been postponed indefinitely. Doubts have been raised about whether this year’s edition of the world’s most popular T20 league will finally be played on the field. A few days ago, BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal said that the Indian Cricket Board is going to face huge losses if the IPL is not held this year. Board President Sourav Ganguly also matched the tune this time.
This year’s IPL was supposed to start on March 29. But at that time, due to Corona’s outburst, the event was initially postponed till April 15. After that, the IPL was postponed indefinitely by the Board of Control for Cricket in India. The Indian board did not cancel the mega-franchise league considering the huge losses.
The situation around the world is uncertain because of the corona, the future of the IPL is uncertain. Therefore, if the IPL is canceled, the Indian board will lose about four thousand crore rupees, said board president Sourav Ganguly. However, when Corona returns to cricket next time, the board is also considering whether the IPL can be played in a single window.
Cricket Australia (CA) has decided to lay off staff in the wake of the Corona financial crisis. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has been forced to choose a way to cut the salaries of cricketers. Doubts have been raised about the salaries of West Indies cricketers. This time, Ganguly hinted at cutting the salaries of Indian cricketers.
The stars of the Indian national team get a salary of around Rs 6 crore a year. However, the former Indian captain hinted that if the IPL is canceled, a decision may be taken to cut the salaries of the players. We can manage everything.
Many are proposing to hold the IPL in a stadium without spectators. But in response, Ganguly said, if that happens, the attraction will decrease. Yes, the attraction will diminish. I had the same experience during the 1999 Asian Test Championship match against Pakistan (spectators were barred from entering Eden Gardens on the last day of the match due to chaos) and obviously the excitement of the match was reduced, he said.
All in all, according to Ganguly, If you are asked to host a game with a small number of spectators, you have to strictly observe the social distance, and the match officials have to be very careful when leaving the spectator gallery. In this case policing must be strict. But it is a very difficult situation.
