MUMBAI: Nothing tentative about it anymore. It can pretty much be stated with near certainty that WHEN the postponed Indian Premier League resumes its suspended innings in September in the UAE, pretty much all the cricket boards, barring England, will have adjusted their schedules around the IPL window that the BCCI is drawing up.

MUMBAI: The BCCI recently had no option but to indefinitely suspend the Indian Premier League after it had completed only half its innings for 2021.

MUMBAI: Truth will out. Too late for the men who matter in the world's richest and most powerful cricket board though. Days after the BCCI was forced to indefinitely suspend the Indian Premier League, the "realisation" (seriously?) appears to have belatedly dawned within the board's corridors of power that taking the IPL bandwagon to the COVID "ground zero" cities of New Delhi and Ahmedabad was "ill-advised".

NEW DELHI: Even as Australia on Tuesday suspended all direct passenger flights from India with immediate effect until May 15 due to the “very significant” spike in COVID-19 cases, the BCCI assured foreign players it would do everything to ensure those competing in the IPL reach their respective countries seamlessly once the tournament ends.
