IPL 2020 Will Push Through If It Can Start in May

The BCCI eyes a possible delay or a possible cancellation of IPL if the event cannot start by the first week of May.

The COVID-19 outbreak has led speculations about a possible cancellation of the much-awaited IPL tournament. However, the BCCI cleared out that they can still push through with the entirety of the tournament if it may take place in the first week of May. 

Originally, the IPL was postponed until April 15. However, the number of positive cases in India continues to rise. With that, the BCCI and the IPL committee remains positive that they can push through with the 13th season of the much-famous cricket event. 

In an interview with a BCCI official, he said, ‘The latest we can wait is till the end of April. If the first game isn’t played by the first week of May then it will be almost impossible to have the league this year. Even if we have to wait until the end of April to follow all the procedures, we can take a cue from the South Africa edition and conduct the league successfully. If you remember, that was the shortest IPL with 59 games played over 37 days and we can do the same. But certain measures will have to be taken’. 

Aside from a possible cancellation, another problem which the league faces is the travel ban imposed by India. Without the participation of the foreign players, the resumption of the 13th season of IPL may also be at stake. 

Originally, the IPL was set to start on March 29 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. To learn more about the IPL, visit Betwala.
