Following IPL The postponement of 2021, BCCI was clear enough with its position that the tournament will not resume soon, as they stated in their official statement that measures will be taken to safely return all participants home.
Many cricket experts have seen the delay come after two Kolkata Kite riders tested positive for COVID-19 amid pressure to continue with the private league when the country’s pandemic situation worsened. Until Tuesday afternoon, the tournament was held by BCCI with up to four players and two teams with positive results.
With that came the question of whether there was a window available this year in a crowded tournament resumption schedule. A small window appeared before the T20 World Cup and immediately after the England tour in England, and a BCCI official said this was possible as the pandemic situation improved and foreign players were available to play.
“Why not? If foreign players are available and the situation with COVID-19 is under control, we can definitely look at this window before WC T20. In fact, it can act as a good preparation for the show event,” a BCCI official told ANI. .
IPL President Bruges Patel also confirmed to the cricket website Cricbuzz that they are exploring the September option.
“Now we have to look for a window. If we get it, we will investigate its detention. We will have to see if it is possible in September. We have to investigate the ICC’s plans and other advice,” Bruges said.
