Sports activity has stopped all over the world due to Coronavirus Pandemic. All tournaments have been either canceled or postponed. Cricket, football, tennis and NBA, no one is untouched by this. All cricket boards have had to cancel their sporting events. Wimbledon has to be canceled and the French Open has also been postponed for the time being and it may have to be canceled if the situation does not improve.
Talking of cricket in India, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) canceled the ODI series against Irani Cup and South Africa. With this, the 2020 season of the Indian Premier League i.e. IPL 2020 has also been postponed for the time being.

However, the BCCI has not canceled the IPL. And perhaps the reason behind this is that he is still hopeful about getting this league done. It is also believed that the board can make a little change in international tournaments to get this series done. Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli has also not given up hope for this year’s IPL. In the IPL, Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Kohli feels that this year’s IPL can still be played.
On Instagram live chat with his fellow player AB de Villiers, Kohli said, “Nothing can be said clearly at this time but I hope someday we will be able to do something.”
