The Indian Premier League has been cancelled indefinitely after reports of multiple players testing positive for the coronavirus from different franchises found their way to the public.

On Tuesday, the chairman of the tournament, Brijesh Patel confirmed that the IPL will be temporarily called off. “We have suspended the IPL for now. The new window will be worked out later on. A statement will follow soon,” Patel told The Hindu.

Yesterday, reports of Kolkata Knight Riders players Varun Chakraborty and Sandeep Warrier testing positive with the virus led to the postponement of the match between KKR and Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Today, it was confirmed that two members of the Chennai Super Kings franchise, namely bowling coach L Balaji, and a bus cleaner had COVID-19 and therefore their match against Rajasthan Royals was also called off.

However, when the news of Covid-19-positive Amit Mirsha (Delhi Capitals) and Wriddhiman Saha (SunRisers Hyderabad) was issued, it meant that at least four out of eight IPL teams had at least one member of the team infected. Eventually the tournament was suspended until further notice.

“The IPL has been suspended for time being. We spoke to everyone from teams, broadcasters and all those who were involved in it. It was decided to defer the IPL especially looking at the sentiment and current situation in the country. For us players health is paramount and BCCI will always keeps safety first. We will meet again soon and decide when we can conclude this edition, we will have to see when is the next window available,” Rajeev Shuka, BCCI Vice President recently confirmed.

And while the disappointment of not being able to see their favourite cricketers lock horns with each other every single day remains high, some of the fans, especially those of former SRH captain, David Warner, are yelling “retribution”:

This is what happens when you remove David Warner as captain and as player.

On the other hand, the fans of Royal Challengers Bangalore are completely heartbroken with this decision as their franchise was finally living up to all the hype that had surrounded them for years, only to be curbed in their way to the championship by a global pandemic.
