The Indian Premier League was on Tuesday suspended indefinitely after multiple COVID-19 cases were reported in its bio-bubble.
“The tournament has been suspended indefinitely. We will try to conduct the event in the next available window but this month is unlikely,” league chairman Brijesh Patel told PTI.
The announcement came after Sunrisers Hyderabad”s wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha tested positive for COVID-19.
On Monday, Chennai Super Kings bowling coach L Balaji along with Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers Sandeep Warrier and Varun Chakravarthy had also returned positive results.
The spread of infections had led to postponement of two IPL games earlier.
There has been severe criticism from various quarters on BCCI continuing with the 14th season of IPL as Covid pandemic ravaged India in its second wave.
