Sources are giving information that India is very much worried about the IPL start date because the T20 World cup is delaying just because of the pandemic outbreak of Coronavirus. All the cricket leaders are becoming very much impatient with the world body delays in deciding whether the Twenty 20 World Cup is going to ahead this year or not amid this Coronavirus pandemic. Therefore, this holdup on World cup is stopping down the Board of Control for Cricket in India from setting the date for its biggest earner, the Indian Premium League.
Furthermore, the International Cricket Council is saying that we are going to make decisions in the month of July about the future of 20 over an event that was there to start in Australia in the month of October. The council has said that they are going to decide but no date has been given by the council yet. Why there is a delay we have no idea, BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal told AFP, he added, that BCCI was already looking forward to a window. Let’s wait till the ICC (International Cricket Council) makes any decision.
Probing further, ICC and BCCI are saying that we are going to see how this situation pans out and they are going to explore options whether we can have it here or overseas. United Arab Emirates and Sri Lankan Cricket boards have already seen interest in holding up the T 20 tournament as soon as possible as it attracts the global superstars such as England’s Joe Root, West Indies batsman Chris Gayle and South Africa’s Faf du Plessis. The IPL has held out of India twice because it clashed with the dates of election, South Africa hosted the 2009 event and part of it was held in the UAE, in the year 2014.
BCCI, further claimed that we are looking forward to opening up the domestic tournaments such as Ranji Trophy, in September to start up the kick-start game in the post-pandemic. Dhumal has said that we are going to face a loss of 500 million dollars if the IPL will get scrapped.
