IPL 2021 has been suspended indefinitely due to COVID incidents. Multiple teams, including SRH’s Wriddhiman Saha and Delhi Capitals’ Amit Mishra, have tested positive for COVID-19.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has temporarily suspended the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 due to the country’s escalating Covid-19 crisis, which has caused a number of players, both Indian and foreign, to withdraw from the ongoing season.
The BCCI will “find a way” to arrange for the return of international players, according to IPL chairman Brijesh Patel, after the league was suspended indefinitely due to a COVID-19 outbreak in its bio-bubble.
Sunrisers Hyderabad wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha and Delhi Capitals veteran spinner Amit Mishra both tested positive for COVID-19, prompting the announcement. Earlier on Monday, Chennai Super Kings bowling coach L Balaji along with Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers Sandeep Warrier and Varun Chakravarthy had also returned positive results.
