Sri Lanka offers to host IPL 13th season

When will IPL start? Would it be? The brawl in this question is the Indian cricket council. BCCI, franchisees, and their players are spending in fear for billions of dollars in losses. If the IPL is finally canceled, then India will suffer in all respects. Sri Lanka came up with a proposal a few days ago to prevent that loss. Sri Lanka offers to host IPL 13th season following India suspension.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has offered to host the 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament, which was officially postponed until further notice because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Sri Lanka is much free from the incidence of Corona, at least in a better position than India. The situation in Sri Lanka is relatively battered in the subcontinent now. Corona confirmed cases had been reported in the Island so far, 244 people with 7 deaths.

Meanwhile, the situation in India is quite serious. The number of confirmed coronavirus infections in India has jumped to 14,794, including 488 deaths. The Lankans want to take this opportunity. Organizing an IPL means earning a huge amount of money. The Board President‎ ‎Shami Silva had hoped to host IPL-2020 in the Lankan media a few days ago.

If the IPL is suspended, then the Indian Cricket Board and everyone participating in the tournament will lose more than 500 million dollars. If they organize the competition in another country, which they did in South Africa in 2009, it could have avoided significant losses. If we receive a positive response from them (India) in the proposal, we will provide all the facilities and facilities needed under the supervision of the Sri Lankan Health Department.”

The IPL was scheduled to begin on March 25. But the tournament has been suspended indefinitely because of the coronavirus. BCCI will not only benefit if IPL-2020 is organized in Sri Lanka, but Lankan cricket will also earn large sums of income. However, whether India agrees with the Lankan proposal, it is time to look into it. For now, considering the reversal position of the two boards, it seems that there is no possibility of unity.

To be mention that BCCI presumed a possible timeframe for the IPL 13th season in September-October, before this year’s T20 World Cup host to Australia.
