As widely predicted, the 2020 Indian Premier League (IPL) is all set to be cancelled in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic that is getting worse by the day. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had earlier postponed the start of the tournament from March 29 to April 15. However, under the current circumstances, it is highly unlikely that the IPL will go ahead this year.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), on Tuesday, cancelled the much-awaited conference call with Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise owners, which was scheduled to be held to discuss the way ahead following the postponement of the T20 league. The IPL was due to begin on March 29, but had to be pushed behind till April 15 owing to the rapid spread of Coronavirus. Following the cancellation of Tuesday’s con-call, IPL 2020 stares at a bleak future.
