New Delhi: The country's corona havoc also lashed out at IPL and it was suspended after some players found corona positive. The IPL began in April 2021 and corona virus cases were on the rise in the country at that time, although BCCI claimed to be completely safe from corona, citing biobubble. All matches played comfortably in Mumbai and Chennai, but as the team reached Delhi and Ahmedabad, the risk of corona infection began to increase.
The corona infection eventually overtook the BCCI's biobubble system and many people, including players and support staff, became infected with corona. BCCI then decided to cancel the 14th season of IPL. the BCCI had also faced a lot of criticism over the decision to hold IPL amid rising corona cases. During a recent interview, BCCI Chief Sourav Ganguli commented on this and said that you can say that IPL should have been cancelled in earlier.
Ganguly said the cases did not increase while playing matches in Mumbai and Chennai but as soon as the team reached Delhi and Ahmedabad, the corona virus cases increased rapidly. But this could not have been done with IPL, you would have stopped it for seven days and then it would have been over. All the players would return home and then the quarantine process would begin.
