After 29 matches of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League, it was decided to postpone the middle due to Corona. The Board of Control for Cricket in India took the difficult decision to postpone the tournament on Tuesday in the meeting of the Emergency Governing Council of the IPL. IPL chairman Brajesh Patel has told when 31 matches can be held at rest.
Talking to a channel, he said, "It is always a difficult decision to postpone a tournament like IPL but four teams had come in it and some players have also joined. One player is Delhi Capitals, Kolkata Knight Riders, Sunrisers Hyderabad, and The Chennai Super Kings' sports staff was found to be Corona positive. It was not possible to proceed with the schedule of the tournament with four teams. It was difficult to recreate the schedule of the four teams. "
"After seeing the whole situation going on in India, we all thought that the best thing would be to postpone it for the time being. The remaining matches would be held later."
When asked what are the plans for starting the league back, Patel gave information on it. He told that the remaining 31 matches of this season will be done either before the T20 World Cup or after that. The T20 World Cup is to be held in India in October-November this year.
Patel said, "Whenever we can get the remaining 31 matches of this season, the matches will start from where it has ended right now. We have to see the availability of time either before the ICC T20 World Cup. Or it can be done after the World Cup. "
