IPL 2020 On Coronavirus
Due to how the Coronavirus is spreading worldwide, it is difficult to organize even after April 15. The BCCI postponed the IPL 2020 until April 15 after the World Health Organization declared the Coronavirus an epidemic. Due to the increasing impact of this transition, the chances of starting this T20 league in April also seem slim.
Franchises are also not in the mood to play, jeopardizing the safety of their players. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly had said that since the league would have lost 17 days, the short IPL could be 2020. According to the report of Times of India, BCCI is no longer in the mood for a short IPL. In 2009, the IPL held in South Africa for over 37 days. If a window of that day is available, it can be organized in India and abroad. Given the impact of Coronavirus, if it is not possible in India, then the entire IPL 2020 can also be done elsewhere.
There is no major international event except the Asia Cup from July to September. The Asia Cup is to held in September. India also has to tour Sri Lanka for a limited-overs series.
A decision could not take in the teleconferencing between the BCCI and eight franchise representatives. An IPL franchise owner said, “No concrete decision could take during this conference.” There has been no change in the situation in the last 48 hours, so it is too early to talk about organizing the IPL. We will have to wait. We will review the situation week to week.
