Indian Premier League (IPL) which is the most lovable tournament for players, franchises, and fans might be taking place after monsoon, after it got indefinitely deferred due to COVID-19 pandemic. The Indian cricket board CEO Rahul Johri announced more likely chances for the tournament to take place, as the Govt of India announced new rules on May 17, and lifted restrictions on closing the stadiums.
Rahul Johri announced all Indian and international players will return to IPL after monsoon, once there’s a final decision on when and how to conduct the 13th season. However the decision on the World T20 schedule from October 18 to November 15 in Australia is yet to be finalized. And up on the meeting of the International Cricket Council on May 28, there would be some clarity.
Johri also announced that the conditions of play would be quite different post COVID-19. The rules like saliva ban, no live spectators in the stadium, and quarantine measures as foreign players travel, and many more play their part in the new era after the crisis ends.
