The Indian Premier League (IPL) has been officially deferred until further notice. The Board of Control for Cricket in India took this decision on Thursday in the wake of the Kovid-19 global epidemic. The board is now looking for a safe window for this rich T20 tournament.
The eight-team league was to be held from March 29, which was postponed to April 15 and then indefinitely.
The entire lockdown in India will run until May 3. During this time the travel ban will continue. In such a situation, there was no other option but to postpone this league.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Jai Shah, issued a statement saying that in view of health concerns, the IPL Governing Council has decided to postpone the 2020 season until further notice.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Cricket has also offered to host the tournament.
Sri Lankan Cricket President Shami Silva said, ‘It seems that the corona virus will be eliminated before Sri Lanka in India. If so, we can organize this tournament at our own. We will soon write to the Indian Cricket Board about this.
There is such a discussion in the Indian media that this league can be organized before the T20 World Cup in September-October.
