Jack Lush McCrum: We are confident that IPL will happen this year
“There are a lot of stories in the press, but what I can say based on our conversation with the BCCI is, they are working really hard to find a solution. They are an agile association and can make it happen. We are confident that IPL will happen this year,” Jake Lush McCrum said.
“We are preparing for the September-November window. But nothing has been finalized as of now given the situation at hand. The great thing about BCCI is that they have put together the tournament at very short notice as well in South Africa in 2009, they can do it again,” he added.
However, in reality, IPL, at first, was to be commenced by 29th march. Due to the lockdown, it moved ahead to 15th April and then to a further window of April-March. With a later extension in lockdown, the tournament got delayed further until any official vote from the authorities indefinitely.
As the Coronavirus situations in some countries are getting better slowly, there can be a good chance to organize the Indian cash-rich league but cancelation of the ICC T20 World Cup shall be on the card.
