The situation of the Indian Premier League (IPL) event is getting more complicated now. The suspense on the IPL continues to increase. Actually, there has been a statement from the New Zealand Cricket Board that it has not given any proposal to host the IPL to the BCCI. For the past few days, there was a discussion that the New Zealand Cricket Board has proposed to the BCCI to host the IPL.
Sri Lanka and UAE have already given these proposals to BCCI. In such a situation, it was also reported from the BCCI that it currently has 3 more options for hosting the IPL apart from India. But now the New Zealand Cricket Board has categorically denied any such proposal. New Zealand Cricket spokesman’s official statement In an interview to the New Zealand media, New Zealand Cricket spokesman Richard Booke said – “This report is only a guess. We have not made any proposal to host the IPL. Nor are we thinking so”.
In fact, New Zealand had breathed a sigh of relief recently when there was no ‘active’ case of Corona left. The official announcement was also made from New Zealand. At that time there was such a discussion that now the New Zealand Cricket Board can propose to host any other two countries. But New Zealand’s trouble increased when the Corona infection returned there. There are currently about twenty Corona-infected people in New Zealand.
Overall, the suspense on the conduct of IPL is increasing. It is certain that IPL will be held this year, but there is confusion about what its nature will be. This is because new types of statements are coming from BCCI. There were indications from the BCCI treasurer that the IPL will be organized outside India. But a few days ago, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly had said that he would wait for the Corona vaccine to arrive before the IPL was organized. Remind you that the IPL was scheduled to begin on March 29 this year, but first the lockdown and then as a precaution the league is constantly being avoided. Another big screw in organizing the league is about its sponsorship. Which China company has. There is strong opposition from China in India these days. In such a situation, crores of cricket fans of the country are now waiting for the meeting of the Governing Council of the IPL, in which the suspense about its event will be completely removed.
