BCCI officially suspends IPL 2020 indefinitely

Most of the cricket calendar around the world has shut down due to the ongoing pandemic. BCCI

With the Coronavirus pandemic not relenting, the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League has officially been suspended indefinitely by the BCCI. This comes just two days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address to the nation, announcing the extension of the lockdown period until May 3.

"The health and safety of the nation and everyone involved in our great sport remains our top priority and as such, the BCCI along with the Franchise Owners, Broadcaster, Sponsors and all the Stakeholders acknowledge that the IPL 2020 season will only commence when it is safe and appropriate to do so," a BCCI release stated.

The tournament was originally scheduled to begin on March 29 at the Wankhede, with the finalists of the 2019 edition, Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings facing off against each other. Due to the nationwide lockdown, there was speculation about making the IPL a closed-door event (to be played in empty stadiums and televised), before the start date was officially deferred to April 15.

Most of the cricket calendar around the world has shut down due to the ongoing pandemic. All international cricket has been either suspended or cancelled. England have pushed back the start of their season until at least May 28 and several overseas signings have been voided. The BCCI were forced to call off the series against South Africa in March, and the situation has only worsened since then.
