Kathmandu: The Indian Premier Legue (IPL) 2021 has been suspended due to the rising covid-19 cases. BCCI Vice-President Rajiv Shukla on Tuesday announced that the IPL has been suspended until further notice. India media has reported that the IPL has been suspended after a few players tested positive.
Wriddhiman Saha of Sunrisers Hyderabad and Amit Mishra of Delhi Capitals tested positive on Tuesday. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will reschedule the remaining games of the T20 league at a later time.
The BCCI had released a statement assuring the foreign players of safe return home after the completion of the league. Things, however, soon went out of control with a number of players testing positive for the virus, suggesting multiple incidents of a breach.
