IPL 2021 was suspended after several positive Covid-19 cases from teams in the last few days. The move was confirmed by IPL Chairman Brijesh Patel, who said that the decision was taken to protect all stakeholders.
The Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) has been suspended after being affected by the Covid-19 pandemic when a Sunrisers Hyderabad player tested positive ahead of his scheduled match against Mumbai Indians today. The season has been postponed due to the growing number of Covid positives in the IPL’s bio-bubble.
Back in the groove after two consecutive wins, defending champions Mumbai Indians were firm favorites to put it past the turbulence-hit and bottom-placed SunRisers Hyderabad.
Mumbai will enter the game after in-form Kieron Pollard’s knock and their four-wickets win over Chennai Super Kings. On the other hand, Sunrisers suffered a humiliating 55-run defeat to Rajasthan Royals, their sixth loss in seven matches of this season.
He is also battling a transition phase when Kane Williamson takes over the captaincy from David Warner off the form, much to his dismay.
The IPL said in a statement that the decision was taken unanimously by the governing council of the tournament and senior BCCI officials. “The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) does not want to take any kind of risk or compromise on the safety of the players, support staff, and other participants in the Indian Premier League (IPL),” the statement said, “this decision was made for the safety, health, and well-being of all stakeholders in mind.”
