IPL 2021: BCCI Suspends IPL Season 14 after players test positive for COVID-19

BCCI Suspends IPL Season 14 after players test positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday. “The Indian Premier League Governing Council (IPL GC) and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in an emergency meeting has unanimously decided to postpone IPL 2021 season, with immediate effect,” BCCI said in a release.

“The BCCI does not want to compromise on the safety of the players, support staff, and the other participants involved in organizing the IPL. This decision was taken keeping the safety, health, and well-being of all the stakeholders in mind.”

“We have suspended the IPL for now. The new window will be worked out later on. A statement will follow soon,” Mr. Patel told The Hindu on May 4.

BCCI was forced to take the call since at least four teams have been affected by COVID-19.
