Ganguly drops a huge hint regarding commencement of IPL
BCCI President Sourav Ganguly dropped a massive hint over the regarding the commencement of IPL. Though there is uncertainty at the moment due to coronavirus, the apex body is trying their best to explore all possible options. IPL was originally scheduled to start from March 29 this year but due to coronavirus, BCCI was forced to postpone the league for an indefinite time.
“We can’t say what will happen in the days to come. It is tough to predict. We are looking at all options. We are still not sure when cricket could resume,” Ganguly told Sportskeeda.
A few days ago, Sri Lanka Cricket Board expressed desires of hosting the cash-rich Indian Premier League. Media reports have also suggested that India’s governing body BCCI could consider taking the world’s popular cricket league to another country.
Speaking about the same, Ganguly said that as of now, BCCI Is in no position to say exactly but that doesn’t change the fact that India would host the competition. Ganguly further said that saving human life is more important than organising the IPL.
“If at all, IPL does happen, we don’t know where it could happen. India would certainly like to host the event, provided the environment is safe. Right now, we are not in a position to say anything. It is too early. We are yet to discuss the IPL schedule officially. But it depends on the safety of the environment. Saving human life and breaking the coronavirus chain are more important for all of us,” Ganguly added in a statement.
Sourav Ganguly also spoke about his charity work that he has been doing in this ongoing coronavirus crisis. “I have been at home only with my family. I am really bothered with the way people are suffering due to the coronavirus pandemic. I can’t say how many people benefitted through my charity foundation. I am trying my best. We all are doing our bit in little ways to come out of this crisis,” concluded the 47-year-old.
