The situation across the country has been quite stern due to a significant rise in COVID-19 cases. India has witnessed over 6 lakh positive cases so far and the count in increasing with each passing day. Apart from human existence, the pandemic has also put the cricket scenario at a halt.

The much-awaited IPL 2020 was also left in doldrums due to the COVID-19 debacle. The BCCI was left with no option but to indefinitely postpone the tournament due to coronavirus transmission across the nation.

The BCCI is hopeful to stage the tournament in the latter phase of the year. But if the COVID-19 scenario across the country doesn’t subside, the board will have no choice but to shift the tournament to a different country.

A BCCI official in the know of developments revealed that the coronavirus pandemic might force the BCCI to shift the cash-rich league to either UAE or Sri Lanka. 

“The race is between UAE and Sri Lanka and we will need to decide on where we host the league depending on the situation there with regards to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Logistics also need to be looked into, so we will decide soon,” the official said 

The tournament was initially planned to be hosted in the country. However, a constant rise in the positive cases has compelled the BCCI to start looking out for other countries as venues.
