The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has been suspended by the BCCI after a few players and members of the support staff tested positive for the Covid-19.
BCCI’s vice-president Rajeev Shukla confirmed the development to ANI.
“IPL has been suspended, we will see whether we can reschedule it, it is not cancelled. It is just suspended for now,” he said.
Meanwhile, Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha also tested positive for Covid-19, the Sunrisers Hyderabad confirmed on Tuesday.
Sources within the SRH camp confirmed to ANI that Saha was the lone person in their camp to have tested positive.
“Yes, Wriddhiman Saha has tested positive for the coronavirus. Our entire team is now under isolation and there are no other positive reports, rest are all negative,” a member of the team management said.
