Coronavirus epidemic has greatly affected many sports including cricket. Not a single match has been played in India since the postponed three-match ODI series against South Africa in March. Even the world's most expensive T20 league, IPL has been postponed indefinitely. Apart from this, no one knows when the Indian team will play its next international match.

ECB may postpone England's tour of India:

Earlier, the BCCI also had to cancel the Indian team's tour of Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe due to Coronavirus. Meanwhile, the Daily Mail has published a report that the Indian tour of England may also get postponed, as it may clash with the new window being searched for IPL. Let us tell you that the England team has to visit India in September to play the three-match ODI and T20 series.

BCCI wants to organize IPL under any circumstances:

Actually, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) wants to organize the 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), under all circumstances. BCCI has been searching for the available window for IPL 2020. On the other hand, BCCI is currently waiting for the ICC's decision on the fate of T20 World Cup.

India has to host England team for three-match ODI and a 3-match T20I series from September 16, but the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is going to postpone their team's tour as it clashes with the IPL. However, international cricket has returned after almost three months with 3-match test series between England and West Indies.

IPL could be organized abroad: BCCI Chief

On the other hand, BCCI chief Sourav Ganguly indicated that the league could be organized abroad if the conditions in India remain same. Currently, India has become the third most affected country in the world. The US is at number one in this list, while Brazil is at number two. At the same time, Sri Lanka and UAE have offered to host IPL, but BCCI will decide about this.
