Pressure increased on Indian authorities to hold a short session of IPL

Posted on Apr 6, 2020

Due to a lockdown caused by the Coronavirus, players have begun pressuring cricket officials to start a short season of the Indian Premier League to whet their sports economy.

The world's most expensive and best cricket league was postponed to April 15 due to the Coronavirus.

However, given the rising rate of deaths and cases in India and international travel restrictions, it is often believed that the possibility of holding an event in the subcontinent for the next 3 months is difficult.

Former English cricketer Kevin Patterson said: "We can see the league getting held in July or August as soon as possible.

"I believe the IPL should be, I think every player in the world is desperate to play IPL," he told Star Sports.

The former English cricketer suggested that the eight-team tournament be shortened in a space of 8 weeks and that it should be played behind closed doors.

He says there is a way that the franchise can make some money and also benefit the economy and that the league should be held behind closed doors at 3 places.

Patterson said players can also attend the league for 3 to 4 weeks and fans should understand that they cannot come to the stadium at the moment and watch the match, and they may come to the stadium sometime in the near future. Could not see

The league is financially viable for the Indian Cricket Board and it benefits the Indian economy by $ 11 billion.

Vivo League, a Chinese mobile company, is a sponsor for 2018-2022, for which it has paid a staggering $ 330 million.

Former Indian cricketers and leading commentators are participating in the league, such as England's Ben Stokes, Australia's David Warner and Pat Cummins and captain of India Virat Kohli, who will serve as the injector for the virus-stricken economy.

He said that as soon as we get clearance from all the authorities, it must be held, which is just because the wheel of the economy will start running again.

Sanjay Manjrekar said that when you talk about the Indian Premier League, it is not just the Mumbai Indians, Mahendra Singh Dhoni or Virat Kohli, but also the employment of many people from the IPL.

Ben Stokes and Pat Cummins have already agreed to join the IPL.

Sarwar Ganguly, the head of the Board of Control for Cricket in India and former Indian captain, has already said that the event will be shortened if the IPL is held.
