The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday postponed the IPL 2020 season until further notice after the nationwide lockdown was extended to May 3 due to Coronavirus. The BCCI gave this information to the eight franchises a few days ago. It was officially decided to postpone IPL 2020 on 16 April.
The IPL 2020 was scheduled to begin from March 29, but it was first postponed to April 15. However, it is now postponed indefinitely. In such a situation, BCCI is getting offers to organize this season of IPL on foreign soil. Even the cricket board of neighboring Sri Lanka has said that they can organize IPL in their place.
RCB coach gave a big statement
Apart from this, IPL is expected to be organized in many more countries. Meanwhile, former Australian batsman and Royal Challengers Bangalore or RCB head coach Simon Katich said that he will be happy even if IPL is at abroad.
Simon Katich is not averse to IPL playing outside India and he is confident of the league being held at the end of the year.
RCB head coach Simon Katich not only gave a statement about this but also gave the reason why he is keen to get IPL on foreign soil.
He said, “Whether it is in Australia or elsewhere, this is the next interesting point of conversation. There will be some teams like us, who will be very happy to play it overseas because most of our foreign players from Australia and South Africa will truly enjoy these conditions in Australia.”
