IPL 2021 suspended; players to go back to their families

Sunrisers Hyderabad keeper Wriddhiman Saha and Delhi Capitals spinner Amit Mishra have tested positive for the virus

Amid rising scares within different camps, IPL 2021 has been put on hold for the time being and the BCCI, in a statement, revealed that everyone goes back to their families and loved ones in these trying times.

"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. The BCCI does not want to compromise on the safety of the players, support staff, and the other participants involved in organising the IPL. This decision was taken keeping the safety, health, and well-being of all the stakeholders in mind," an IPL Media Advisory stated.

"These are difficult times, especially in India and while we have tried to bring in some positivity and cheer, however, it is imperative that the tournament is now suspended and everyone goes back to their families and loved ones in these trying times. The BCCI will do everything in its powers to arrange for the secure and safe passage of all the participants in IPL 2021."

Earlier to go with two positive cases in the KKR and CSK camps each, today it was reported that Sunrisers Hyderabad keeper Wriddhiman Saha and Delhi Capitals spinner Amit Mishra have tested positive for the virus. Thus the decision has been taken unanimously to suspend for the time being and there will be no immediate resumption as well.

"The BCCI would like to thank all the healthcare workers, state associations, players, support staff, franchises, sponsors, partners and all the service providers who have tried their best to organise IPL 2021 even in these extremely difficult times," the statement read.
