IPL 2020 suspended until April 2015 due to coronavirus concerns.
The BCCI is concerned and sensitive about all its stakeholders, and public health in general, and it is taking all necessary steps to ensure that, all people related to IPL including fans have a safe cricketing experience,” a BCCI media release signed by board secretary Jay Shah stated.
“The BCCI will work closely with the Government of India along with the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and all other relevant Central and State Government departments in this regard.”
Board President Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah will meet representatives of each of the eight franchises and other stakeholders during Saturday’s Governing Council (GC) meet to apprise them of specifics and a potential road-map.
The conduct of the 13th season of the T20 tournament, originally scheduled to begin on March 29, had come under a cloud of uncertainty after India’s sports ministry issued an advisory to all the National Sports Federations, including BCCI, against public gathering in any sporting event.
