The IPL 2021 was suspended after the COVID-19 storm wave started with KKR’s Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier and eventually spread across teams like CSK, DC And SRH. BCCI president Sourav Ganguly highlighted that they will further discuss with other cricketing boards and ask for a window allowance for resuming IPL 2021 before the T20 international World Cup. Ganguly also warned about the amount of loss BCCI might face if the league is cancelled.
“We have to speak with other boards and see if a window can be made available before T20I World Cup. If we fail to complete the IPL, the loss will be close to INR 2500 crore (USD 340 million approx). That is going by early estimates”, Ganguly on fitting the remainder of the IPL.
Sourav Ganguly says the BCCI will see if they can fit the remainder of the IPL in between the end of India's tour of England in September and the start of the T20 World Cup in mid-October 🗣️
