Indian Premier League cricket is suspended because of covid outbreak

In a statement, the Board of Control for Cricket in India said it “does not want to compromise on the safety of players, support staff and other participants involved in organizing the IPL. This decision was made with the safety, health and wellbeing of all concerned in mind. These are difficult times, especially in India, and while we have tried to bring something positive and cheer, it is imperative that the tournament be suspended now and that everyone return to their families and loved ones during these difficult times. “
