The Indian Premier League (IPL) has been indefinitely suspended as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis in India.

In a statement on Tuesday, tournament organizers said that the Indian Premier League Governing Council (IPL GC) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in an emergency meeting has unanimously decided to postpone IPL 2021 season with immediate effect.

“While we have tried to bring in some positivity and cheer, however, it is imperative that the tournament is now suspended and everyone goes back to their families and loved ones in these trying times.”

“These are difficult times, especially in India, and while we have tried to bring in some positivity and cheer, however, it is imperative that the tournament is now suspended and everyone goes back to their families and loved ones in these trying times,” the IPL said in a statement.

“The BCCI will do everything in its powers to arrange for the secure and safe passage of all the participants in IPL 2021.”

It is unclear when and where the cricket tournament, which attracts the world’s best cricketers on big-money contracts, will resume.

The development comes after Monday’s match in Ahmedabad had to be rescheduled after two Kolkata Knight Riders players tested positive for Covid-19 and two non-playing members of the Chennai Super Kings franchise contracted the virus in Delhi.

The tournament’s organizers had pushed ahead with the tournament, despite the withdrawal of several high-profile players and calls for a postponement.
