The Indian Premier League franchises might be working overtime with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to find ways to make the 13th edition of the IPL a reality – even when the coronavirus outbreak has brought life to a standstill — but they are subconsciously ready to see the league get cancelled this season.
Speaking to IANS, an official of one of the franchises said that the owners will have a conference call at 6 p.m. on Monday, but things are getting a little dangerous as far as the pandemic is concerned.
“We are having a conference call today in the evening and we will discuss the situation, but just look around. Schools, colleges, malls, theatres have all been closed. In fact, even gyms have closed now after the fresh directive from the health department. So, in such a scenario, it is only obvious that we might get to a situation where the league may have to be called off for a season,” the official said.
