Indian Premier League indefinitely suspended due to Covid-19 crisis

Rebel Nation | May 4, 2021

The Indian Premier League (IPL) has been indefinitely suspended as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis in India.

The move, which follows growing controversy over the competition, comes a day after two players — Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier — tested positive, forcing a match to be postponed.

  • The number of new coronavirus infections in India passed 20 million on Tuesday with 357, 229 new cases reported in the latest 24-hour period.
  • The Indian Premier League’s regular season was set to end on May 23, with qualifiers and eliminators to follow before the final on May 30.
  • “The BCCI does not want to compromise on the safety of the players, support staff and the other participants involved in organising the IPL,” it added.

    India, which has reported more than 20 million infections so far, with just over 222,000 deaths, is also due to host the Twenty20 World Cup in October and November.

    The high-paying IPL, which was taking place in biosecure “bubble” conditions, attracts many of the world’s top cricketers, including players from Australia, England and South Africa.
