Will the IPL still go ahead for 2020?
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is holding strong to maintain its prized Indian Premier League (IPL) schedule in order to get players back on the field from their tentative new schedule of September 25th – November 1st. The reinstatement of the IPL series would allow India to retain the forecasted IPL revenue which is vital to support players, the global cricket financial recovery and respectively India’s economy. Financial experts claim that the IPL drives significantly more revenue for India than any other global cricket events such as the T20 World Cup and Asian Cup.
Reports have noted that by rescheduling the IPL for September this would ultimately clash with the latest plans for T20 World Cup but the BCCI won’t budge and new plans to reschedule the T20 World Cup to 2021. The BCCI will continue to prioritise the IPL to ensure the series is recovered this year at all cost. But the latest official news isn’t what Cricket betting fans currently want to hear; “Due to the evolving global health concerns regarding COVID-19 and lockdown measures implemented by the Government of India to contain the spread of the pandemic, the IPL Governing Council of the BCCI has decided that the IPL 2020 Season will be suspended till further notice.” – Jay Saha (BCCI Honorary Secretary)
