BCCI to postpone IPL due to rabid Coronavirus


On Saturday the 14th of March, the office bearers of BCCI and the Governing Council Members had met with the Franchise Owners in order to discuss the matters of the IPL. There was a Plan B in place that had a truncated league with shortened games. But now it seems that the entire Plan B is out of the picture and only the originally designated Plan A would be executed.

Plan A was to host the entire tournament that consists of 60 matches, if not now then on a later time and if not the country then overseas. This was said with the availability of the players too. If all the players were not available then the tournament would be held with he available players. The future tours of the Cricket Team may see little in the months of from July to September. The Asia Cup T20 which was supposed to be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and had been scheduled for September, has now been barred.

The England and Wales Cricket association had plans to launch The Hundred for the months of June and July. Many other cricketing nations such as Australia, New Zealand, West Indies, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan do not have any sort of packed commitments. India has been facing this problem too. Other than the Asia cup in September, the only series India was scheduled to play was the T20 cup in Australia. There have been concerns regarding the scheduling of a tournament or any other sort of functions.
