The Indian cricket board has decided to postpone the Indian Premier League (IPL) until further notification. An official declaration on the same can be expected from the BCCI at any point in the near future.
BCCI Postponed the IPL Matches Due to COVID
In opposition to media reports of Tuesday that the IPL has been “indefinitely postponed,” the BCCI, on Wednesday, addressed every one of the eight franchises and other significant partners of the alliance, advised them of the overarching conditions and passed on that
“given the situation, there is no choice but to postpone the IPL further. Further discussions will take place once the threat of Covid-19 subsides”.
BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, secretary Jay Shah, treasurer Arun Thakur, IPL governing council chairman Brijesh Patel and senior Board workers who investigate the undertakings of the association consistently held a phone call on Tuesday following which it was chosen to pass on to franchises of the discussions that ensured.
The Board, on Wednesday, separately reached all the franchises and educated them that in the given situation – with Covid-19 not giving any indications of subsiding – “the IPL is being racked for the present”.
