The second wave of COVID 19 has been very alarming, and it has caused a medical emergency as well in all the states of India. The BCCI had managed the first half of the season well. But the scare of COVID 19 has breached when the tournament is into its last phase.
The two players from Kolkata Knight Riders have also been affected by COVID 19, which also led to the cancellation of yesterday’s match with Royal Challengers Bangalore. The support staff members of Chennai Super Kings were also tested positive for Corona Virus.
The good thing is that no CSK player was tested positive for the virus. The members of the Yellow Army went through the tests, and the reports were negative. The match between CSK and RR will go as per the schedule tomorrow. This was announced by the Indian board, BCCI.
The news from DDCA is also disturbing. The five ground staff of Delhi District Cricket Association were also tested positive for COVID. The teams like MI, CSK, SRH, and RR are located in Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi for the league games, which will go on till May 8th, 2021.
Due to the increase in the cases of COVID, the fans of the Indian Premier League are demanding the cancellation of this T20 event. But BCCI still wants to reschedule yesterday’s match between RCB and KKR, which was postponed due to the COVID 19 issue.
Cancel IPL has been the message which is trending on Twitter right now. The fans and the cricket fraternity do not want the tournament to go on and risk the players’ lives and support staff. Many players urged BCCI to push the IPL forward, and they cant put the life of the players and the other members in danger.
Social media is also flooded with funny and hilarious tweets on the trend of cancel IPL. But some don’t support this, while the teams like SRH, RCB, and DC fans support the cancellation of this year’s tournament fully. Even though RCB and DC teams are in the top four of the points, still their fans want the tournament to be canceled.
