The BCCI is yet to take a decision on the 13th edition of the lucrative league IPL 2020, which remains postponed at least till 15 April due to the coronavirus pandemic and the resultant travel restrictions on foreigners’ entry to India. It was originally supposed to start on 29 March.
“We are open to a shortened tournament with only Indian players, at the end of the day it is the Indian Premier League,” Barthakur told PTI.
With a nationwide lock down in place to combat the spread of the disease, the event seems unlikely to go ahead unless the BCCI figures an alternate window later in the year, compromising a few bilateral commitments.
Acting on the directives from the central government in March, the BCCI postponed the IPL until 15 April.
The novel coronavirus has so far infected over 850,000 people worldwide while claiming the lives of more than 42,000. Over 1600 positive cases have so far been reported across India besides over 40 deaths.
