The cricket series has resumed on the 8th after 4 months of no cricket match due to the Corona threat. The Test series between England and the West Indies is being played in the UK without spectators.
The resumption of the cricket series is a good sign for the world of cricket. So the expectation of cricket fans is when the IPL will take place.
The IPL series, which was scheduled to start on March 29, has been postponed indefinitely. The BCCI plans to hold the IPL from late September to November as the T20 World Cup, scheduled to start on October 18, is likely to be postponed. Although the ICC has not officially announced the postponement of the T20 World Cup, it has been reported that the postponement of the T20 World Cup is certain and the ICC will announce in due course.
Therefore, the IPL is expected to take place in September-November. BCCI President Ganguly has categorically stated that this year will not be without the IPL. Meanwhile, the cricket boards of Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates have sought permission from the BCCI to host the IPL in their home country.
In the current scenario, the IPL is likely to be run without fans. As such, it is okay for IPL matches to be played without spectators. Spectators are eager to watch IPL matches. Stadiums fill up. But the IPL is for those who watch it on TV. As such, the owner of an IPL team has said that it is okay to walk without spectators.
