Former IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla said: “Our priority is to fight Corona and save lives.”
The Indian Premier League (IPL), which started on March 29, was postponed to April 15 due to the Corona virus. Former chairman of the tournament, Rajiv Shukla, said it was not possible to play IPL from April 15 due to Corona. Lockdown in the country seems to be on the rise.
Rajiv told the news agency, “I don’t see any preparation. Our priority is to fight the corona and save the lives of the people. Right now everything depends on the government’s decision. Let us say what the government says about lockdown, visa bans and corona. Should work the same.
The visa ban date may be extended
The former chairman said, “We have heard that a lockdown up to 14 will be pushed forward. In that case, if you have been thinking about IPL from April 15, it is impossible.” On the possibility of foreign players playing IPL, Rajiv said it was impossible in such a scenario. The Indian government can extend the visa ban date, which is now April 15.
