The 13th edition of IPL has been postponed till further notice. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced this on Thursday. After a 21-day lockdown in India, Prime Minister Modi had extended the lockdown till May 3. Now, because of the lockdown, it is impossible to have this game event. The BCCI is not looking for any correct option for the event at this time.
Earlier, BCCI had postponed till April 15
Earlier, the IPL was postponed till April 15 due to the global coronavirus epidemic by the BCCI. It was expected that if the situation were correct, the IPL would be done in another month, but after the lockdown was increased by May 3, it is impossible to see the event.
What will happen next now?
If the current conditions of the global coronavirus pandemic are seen, the event can be held between September and November, but it will be possible only when Australia cricket changes the dates of the T20 World Cup, Australia currently continues to have a 6-month travel ban, which is going to run till September 30.
This decision is too hard to fill
This time the T20 World Cup is to be played in Australia in October-November, but the sword of danger is also hanging over the coronavirus epidemic. One option to be IPL is to get the first IPL of the T20 World Cup in the first week of September and October, but the Pakistan Cricket Board has already cleaned up that we will not cancel the Asia Cup due to IPL. Now, after such a statement, this option is also difficult. At the moment, the Coronavirus epidemic has stirred up the country and the world, now any sporting events will be approved only after normality.
