The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 is currently suspended. Three players were found Covid-19 positive within two days, after which the decision has been taken. Today, Sunrisers Hyderabad wicket-keeper batsman Wriddhiman Saha has been found positive in the Covid-19 Test. Rajeev Shukla, Vice-President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), told ANI that IPL 2021 has been suspended for the time being. IPL chairman Brijesh Patel told Reuters that IPL 2021 is currently suspended indefinitely due to Covid-19.

Rajeev Shukla told ANI that IPL 2021 has just been suspended, it has not been canceled. He also said that it has to be seen when it can be rescheduled. Earlier on Monday, Varun Chakraborty and Sandeep Warrier of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) were found positive in the Covid-19 Test, after which the match between KKR and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) had to be postponed.

There were reports that all the remaining matches of the IPL will be held in Mumbai, but after Saha’s positive in the Covid-19 Test, the decision has been taken to suspend the IPL for the time being. A total of 29 matches of IPL have been played so far. Apart from these three players, the Covid-19 Test report of Bowling Coach Laxmipathy Balaji from Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Camp has also come positive. The IPL 2021 was being played in the BioSecure Environment. In such a situation, after the players came positive in the Covid-19 Test, the debate has started on where the lapse has been?
