Coronavirus threat in IPL 2020: Sourav Ganguly says IPL is on

Posted by hussainrashida39 on March 11th, 2020

The 13th edition of Indian Premier League is under coronavirus threat. There is a lot of discussion around the status of the league because of the growing number of coronavirus cases in India. But the BCCI president confirmed that the league is still on.

IPL 2020 to be postponed?

Total number of coronavirus cases in India has now rises to 42 as on Monday. On the other hand, the IPL will begin on March 29 with seven matches to be played in Mumbai including the opening fixture between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. The Maharashtra Health Ministry released a statement mentioning, "15 people are under observation while 258 have been discharged. Not a single person has been found positive for coronavirus infection in the state, as of now."

So the Health Minster believes that IPL could be organized later and the situation must be discussed accordingly. He thinks that gathering in such huge number like IPL matches should be avoided in such situation. "There is always a danger of spread (of contagious diseases) when people gather in large numbers. Such events can always be organised later. So discussion is on whether to postpone the IPL."

BCCI on IPL under corona threat

But the Board of Control for Cricket in India does not keen on changing the schedule or taking any call on the league. Moreover, the president Sourav Ganguly confirmed to India Today that the IPL would be organized as per schedule. He further assured that board would take necessary precautions to deal with the alarming situation during the league. "It's on...and BCCI will take all protection (against coronavirus)," Ganguly confirmed while asked about the BCCI’s idea of dealing the league under the threat.

According to a senior BCCI official the board would replicate the precautionary guidelines recommended by the government. They would also end the same to all the stakeholders. The reports suggest that the BCCI would advise the players avoid shaking hands with fans or touching devises that do not belong to them.
