Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly said the rest of the IPL T20 cricket series, which has been suspended due to the spread of the Coronavirus infection, could not be played in India.
The IPL T20 cricket series was suspended indefinitely last week. The BCCI immediately took this step after the players developed a series of coronavirus infections. Following this, foreign players who participated in the series are being sent safely to their homeland.
Meanwhile, the BCCI has started discussing where, how and how to host the remaining 31 games of the suspended IPL series. It is also focusing on the search for a timetable for the IPL series between international matches.
BCCI chief Ganguly said, “There are difficult things like 14 days of isolation to host the match. The rest of the matches cannot be played in India. It is difficult to handle isolation. And it’s hard to tell you right now how to find a schedule to end the IAPL series.”
Meanwhile, The Merrillbone Cricket Club in England said it was keen to host the rest of the IPL series in September. But it was reported that the BCCI is yet to consult in this regard. It may be noted that the entire IPL series was held in the UNITED Arab Emirates last year due to the threat of the Coronavirus.
Meanwhile, the Indian cricket team will leave for England early in June to take on New Zealand in the FINAL of the ICC World Test Championship. After the end of the game, India will also participate in a five-Test series against England. It is said that the 2nd-level Indian team will participate in the 3-ODI and 5-T20I series against Sri Lanka in July.
