On Tuesday, Sangakkara shared his reaction to the postponement of the IPL.

“It has been a good decision by the BCCI, and of course, the governing council of the IPL to postpone the tournament. Hopefully, we will all be back together soon when the tournament does restart. I wish everyone well,” he said.
