IPL was returning to India after a gap of two years after the marquee event was contested in UAE in the year 2020, owning to the rising coronavirus threat in India. With Covid cases striking record low in the month of January and February, BCCI decided to schedule this year’s tournament in India behind closed doors but the rising coronavirus threat in the month of March became a big headache.
Now BCCI has decided to postpone the IPL 2021 and schedule it for the month of November this year outside India. Coronavirus can be deadly for the players and BCCI don’t want to get themselves in trouble. Now before our readers get into trouble and fear of not watching IPL from 9th April, its just to let you know that you have been made an April fool on 1st of April and this was just a joke. Note: No animals were harmed during this sarcasm.
Despite the rising Covid threat in the country, IPL will go according to the schedule. The tough bio bubble norms of BCCI are enough to safeguard the players and team staff from the Covid-19. Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Mumbai Indians in season opener on 9th April 2021.
