IPL not in jeopardy due to coronavirus, says Sourav Ganguly

IPL not in jeopardy due to coronavirus, says Sourav Ganguly

The thirteenth edition of the BCCI’s golden hen Indian Premier League (IPL) is all set to kick-off on March 29. However, there is a global epidemic that has eclipsed all major sporting events of late, going by the name of Corona Virus (COVID 19).

As many as 3100 have been fatally reported, while many remain critically infected due to the deadly virus originated from Wuhan in China.

A major population of the world still remains under quarantine or observation. The virus recently made its way to India, through tourists visiting China, or by any other means.

Despite the international frenzy around the infection, BCCI chief Sourav Ganguly remains positive about the 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) taking place. And, that the tournament is not in any jeopardy.

“Nothing in India. Not even discussed it (Coronavirus),” Sourav told the reporters when asked about the IPL or South Africa ODI series being affected due to the virus.

“There is no threat as of now, and we are keeping a tab (on the situation).” IPL Governing Council chairman Brajesh Patel confirmed, according to PTI.

Many club football matches in Italy are scheduled to be played in front of empty stadiums to decrease the chances of transmission of the virus through the public gathering. The outbreak of the deadly coronavirus has also put the upcoming Tokyo Olympics under doubt.
