The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 was recently suspended midway through the campaign after several cases of COVID-19 were tallied in the bio-bubbles.
IPL 2021 was suspended in early May
The Indian Premier League Governing Council (IPL GC) and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in an emergency meeting had unanimously decided to postpone IPL 2021 season.
BCCI had cleared that the body does not want to compromise on the safety of the players, support staff, and the other participants involved in organizing the IPL. It was further said that “the decision was taken keeping the safety, health, and wellbeing of all the stakeholders in mind.”
It was uncertain whether the coveted tournament would resume and where would it take place. But, now it seems BCCI has taken a step forward to resume the rest of the tournament.
