Indian Premier League 2021 is on indefinite suspension due to high levels of COVID-19. It is the first time this event has been postponed, and the decision to suspend the tournament is not surprising. It was only a matter of time before multiple players, including Wriddhiman Saha and Amit Mishra, returned positive test results. Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad have all been suspended, with the second and third matches rescheduled for a later date.
Despite these suspensions, it seems like the Indian Premier League has a bright future. The first phase of the tournament saw 29 matches, but the league is scheduled to play the second phase in the United Arab Emirates in September and October. The dates for the next phase have not yet been set, but are likely to be between September 18 and October 10 of this year. The finals of IPL 2021 will take place at the same time as the World T20, which is scheduled for late March or early April of 2020.
During the first phase
During the first phase, the league played 29 matches. After that, two more players tested positive for the drug Covid-19. The halt of the league may affect the official broadcaster, Star India. However, some top media buyers believe the company will be protected by insurance or a resumption of the league. The Board of Control for Cricket in India unanimously agreed to the suspension. The IPL is suspended for a year, but the team will continue to play until the competition resumes.
In the meantime, England will begin their summer with two Test matches against New Zealand before playing a white-ball series against Pakistan. Then, in September, India will visit England for a five-Test tour. In October, the T20 World Cup will be played in India, followed by the Ashes tour. IPL 2021 is now on 30 matches into the scheduled 60. Those who are interested in the tournament can start following the announcement.
The suspension of the IPL 2021 has come after the testing of several players for the drug COVID-19. While the suspension is a short-term measure, it could be necessary to suspend the tournament for a year. As the season has already reached the halfway stage, the franchises will need to hit the ground running, or risk losing their money. And after the first phase of IPL 2021, the league is suspended indefinitely.
IPL 2021 has been suspended for an indefinite period after multiple players tested positive for COVID-19. With 29 matches in the first phase, the league’s official broadcaster, Star India, may face some losses, but top media buyers believe that the suspension will be lifted soon. There are two major issues with the IPL in 2021. One of them is the COVID-19 cases. The suspension of the tournament will affect all teams in the competition.
