- CHENNAI: With the second wave of Covid-19 raging on in the country, it was only a matter of time before the pandemic had this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) in its grip. But the entire situation could have been easily avoided had the BCCI acted upon the IPL governing council’s (GC) proposal.
- It was learned that the IPL GC had proposed that the entire tournament be shifted to the UAE a week prior to the start of the event on April 9. With IPL being such a long-drawn tournament, the GC, headed by Brijesh Patel, feared that things might spiral out of BCCI’s control if the second wave broke out.
