Meanwhile, Team India veteran batsman Virender Sehwag has also received a statement regarding IPL. He says that this tournament will not happen even after April.

It may also happen that this year it is canceled. Viru said this to Live FM’s RJ Raunak during a live chat. Veeru also told people how they can stay in their house for 21 days.
Sehwag said that you can spend a lot of time with the family by doing all the activities at home. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced a 21-day lockdown to deal with the coronavirus epidemic. Seeing the growing outbreak of Kovid-19, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly said that he had nothing to say on the matter.
Ganguly said, “I can’t say anything right now.” We are in the same place as when we decided to suspend it. Nothing has changed in the last 10 days. In such a situation, I have no answer, because the infection of this virus is increasing rapidly. ”Kings XI Punjab co-owner Ness Wadia has also expressed his opinion about the match.
Wadia said, “BCCI should really consider postponing the IPL now. As a major sporting event, we need to act with greater responsibility. He said that if the situation improves by May. However, even if this happens, how much time we will have. Will foreign players then be allowed to enter the country?”
Earlier on Tuesday (March 24), the BCCI postponed the conference of officials and team owners. Covid-19 cases continue to increase in the country and the world. The 13th season of the IPL was to begin on March 29.
BCCI official associated with the matter said, “In this situation, if the Olympics can be postponed for a year, then the IPL is a very small tournament in that sense. It’s organized seems difficult. We should think that the government is not even considering the approval of foreign visa.
