IPL 2021 suspended due to rising Covid-19 cases, confirms BCCI vice-president Rajiv Shukla - Cricket Matches Today

IPL 2021 suspended due to rising Covid-19 cases

Major news coming from the Indian Premier League premises on 4th May 2021 confirms that the ongoing tournament will be suspended for the time being due to rising Covid-19 cases in the country.

The big decision from BCCI came after several players from the playing teams tested positive. Despite being continuously in a bio-bubble, two KKR players on Monday tested positive prior to their match. Apart from this, Amit Misra from Delhi Capitals and Wriddhiman Saha from Sunrisers Hyderabad also tested positive for Covid-19.

On Tuesday, a bench from Bombay Highcourt agreed to hear a plea for postponing or canceling the 14th season of IPL due to the rising dangers of a pandemic in India, with more than 300k cases being recorded in a single day. Delhi Highcourt also received a similar PIL seeking IPL 2021 cancellation.

Chennai Super Kings informed BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) that they are unwilling to play their match against Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday after their coach Laxmipathy Balaji and CEO K Vishwanathan returned positive test reports.

Soon after other players returned the same, BCCI vice-president Rajiv Shukla immediately announced that the league is suspended for the time being.
