In spite of the Home Ministry’s gesture to the reviving of sports arenas and edifices, BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal has said that the Indian Premier League (IPL) is unimaginable as the movement limitations are still there.

The money rich group which was initially booked to be held between March 29 and May 24 was before been conceded till April 15 due to the coronavirus episode. Be that as it may, the emergency before long drove the super occasion administering bodies to defer it “uncertainly”.

“The IPL right now is absurd since movement limitations are still there. Along these lines, how might you have the IPL with no movement occurring?” Dhumal revealed to The Indian Express.

The treasurer included that they would design things as per the rules.

“We are examining these rules and will consider express governments’ rules too. As needs be, we will design,” he said.

It would seem that, starting at now the two alternatives of having an IPL this year are – arranging it in September and early October before the World T20 in Australia or facilitating it to the detriment of the World T20 if the ICC, Cricket Australia and different partners are all in understanding.

The Central government on Sunday has broadened the across the nation lockdown for an additional 14 days till May 31 and has cautioned of severe activity under the Disaster Management Act and Indian Penal Code if the new rules are not conformed to.

In such an emergency, resumption of cricket at any point in the near future appears to be grim and henceforth the destiny of IPL hangs in balance.
