Irfan Pathan Passes A Hilarious Remark On IPL 2020 Being Held Behind Closed Doors
“Barati ke bina shaadi adhuri lagti hai (a marriage is incomplete without guests), so we will have the same feeling (IPL without fans) as well,” Irfan Pathan said in a conversation with Timesofindia.com, talking about the IPL.
“But barati ke bina bhi shaadi hoti hai. Kai log court me jaake bhi shaadi karte hain, eventually shaadi hoti hai (but marriages do happen without guests, some opt for court marriage. Eventually, marriages do happen).”
Speculations Intensify Over IPL 2020 Future
IPL 2020 was scheduled to start from March 29, but due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the BCCI postponed it until April 15. As the nationwide lockdown extended in India, BCCI suspended IPL 2020 Indefinitely. Now, with the situation worsening, it seems a huge possibility that IPL stands nothing but cancelled this year.
On April 10, latest reports suggested that the BCCI is probing into the July window to conduct the IPL and it could take place behind closed doors. However, all hopes once again vanished as the BCCI suspended the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 indefinitely in the light of the coronavirus pandemic. With COVID-19 victims toll rising in India, cricket returning to India seems a possibility far from reality.
