The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the national governing body of cricket in India, has put off the 2020 Indian Premier League (IPL) till the next order once again, after the escalation of the Lockdown.
The IPL 13 is anticipated to be cancelled, as the season has been postponed for the two times.
However, Sri Lanka has expressed its interest to become the host country for the IPL 13, as there is a letter having willingness to host this season, written by the Sri Lankan Cricket Board. The IPL fans now have the light of a new hope.
BCCI is speculated to look for all options to organise IPL.
If the IPL season 13 gets cancelled, then BCCI will probably lose $500 million.
The two seasons of IPL were played in South Africa and UAE respectively. If the response of BCCI comes positive, then viewers will be able to enjoy IPL matches via their Television at least.
Sri Lanka is believed to overcome the pandemic prior to India, which made them write the letter to BCCI.
