BCCI is waiting for a final word from the Indian government. The board might be allowed to conduct a few activities if the restrictions are lifted. There could also be a case that BCCI might be allowed to stage IPL behind the closed doors in the next few months.
Now, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has added fuel to the fire of IPL 2020 taking place and has said that all the cricketers have been waiting for IPL 2020 to take place.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar Voucehs For IPL 2020 To Take Place
“The IPL must happen,” India’s premier swing bowler said on Friday. “The tournament is important for both cricketing and financial reasons.” “After the first ODI against South Africa (which was washed out at Dharamshala on March 12), we were scheduled to play the second match at Lucknow, but the entire series was abandoned,” he said.
“I was coming back to the Indian team after a gap of four months, following an injury. I had then thought it (the problem created by the virus) would be soon over,” Bhuvneshwar added.
