Mumbai: The 14th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has been suspended due to the corona virus epidemic. The Cricket Board of India (BCCI) vice-president Rajiv Shukla has told news agency ANI that the IPL is being postponed for this season.
After two Kolkata Knight Riders players were found to be Kovid positive, the BCCI is now considering shifting the remaining matches of the 14th season of IPL to Mumbai. IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders spinner Varun Chakraborty and fast bowler Sandeep Warrier have been found to be Corona positive. After this, Kolkata’s match with Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad in the 14th season of IPL was postponed.

According to Cricinfo’s report, if Mumbai is planned, the remaining matches of the IPL can be shifted to Mumbai by the end of this week. This would require a rejected tournament schedule with multiple double headers. The IPL final is also likely to be held from May 30 to the beginning of June.
There are six venues for the 14th season of the IPL, including Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai. Chennai and Mumbai have hosted their matches and Ahmedabad and Delhi are hosting the remaining matches.
