The BCCI has postponed IPL 2021 after the corona report of several players came back positive. After this, questions were arising whether IPL 14 can be canceled going ahead under the present circumstances. The Board of Control for Cricket in India, Rajiv Shukla, has clarified the situation regarding this. He informed me that IPL 14 has not been canceled. This season of IPL 14 started on 9 April, 29 matches have been played so far. 31 matches are remaining in the tournament.
Talking to Star Sports, Rajiv Shukla said that one thing I want to clarify is that the IPL has not been canceled. It has been avoided. There will be remaining matches of IPL-14. At the appropriate time when the condition of the Kovid improves, a decision will be taken about it. He further said that the report suggesting suspension is only for 5 days or a week, the same is not true. There is speculation that the tournament will resume after five days or a week, it is not possible.
Significantly, the IPL was suspended indefinitely on Tuesday after the team of Kolkata Knight Riders, Delhi Capitals, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Superkings received several cases of Kovid-19 infection. KKR's reports of two players Varun Chakraborty and Sandeep Warrier came positive on Monday. After this, the match between RCB and KKR had to be postponed. After this, three Kovid 19 cases were reported from the camp of Chennai Super Kings. In this episode, the Kovid report of two players from Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad Amit Mishra and Wriddhiman Saha came out positive.
