Indian premier league 13th edition is about to cancel due to the spread of coronavirus pandemic. As per the plan IPL 2020 was supposed to start on 29th March 2020 but due to nationwide lockdown it has been postponed for 15th April 2020 but now it seems very difficult for BCCI management to organize this one of the most popular T20 cricket events in India.
Now from the different source news are coming that BCCI may be forced to cancel the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League due to the coronavirus crisis around the world. In a media interview, BCCI Treasurer Arun Dhumal said that BCCI could face a big revenue loss of around 4000 crores if in case IPL does not take place in upcoming months.
The loss will be not limited to the BCCI management only, top Indian cricketers like Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni & Rohit Sharma might also face a big loss if IPL 2020 gets canceled. Many big players from India and the world have to face a huge pay cut if IPL 13 gets canceled fully without a bowl. England test cricket team captain Joe Root and Australian test cricket team captain Tim Paine have been realistic about the possibility of pay cuts.
As corona cases are on the rise in India especially in the metro cities like Mumbai and Delhi where the maximum number of matches took place but now it won’t be possible for the government to allow the IPL authority to conduct IPL matches with huge gatherings.
