The Indian Premier League (IPL) fans can breathe little easy as one of the IPL team’s COO has declared that IPL 2020 will surely happen. According to the Rajasthan Royals COO Jake Lush McCrum, the franchise is in constant touch with the Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) and the Indian board will make IPL happen in 2020.
Meanwhile, as Rajasthan Royals COO mentioned IPL teams have already started preparing for the Sep-Nov window. Another team has already declared that for the sake of IPL 2020 season, they are even happy playing without crowds.
Kings XI Punjab CEO, Sathish Menon in an interview to Hindustan Times (HT) said: “The onus will be on BCCI and the Indian government whether they think IPL13 can be organised anytime soon. I think the safety of players and the nation comes first. It would be great for the players, franchises and for the brand if IPL happens even if it is behind closed doors…”
With some positive statements coming around these gloomy times, IPL fans can look forward to some action in the months between September to November. If all goes well from here-on all of these talks of IPL 2020 season can actually turn into reality in the later part of this year.
