The situation in India regarding the coronavirus has become very bad and therefore their government had to make decisions that would reduce the number of infected, in order to recover as soon as possible in this country. For this reason, the matches in the IPL have been canceled and the fans will have to wait a while to be able to watch their favorite competition in the world again.
Ness Wadia, one of the founders of the IPL, believes that this will not affect the quality of the league and that this is just a small blow for such a competition. Yet this decision is good for the majority of the population as the situation is getting worse and worse day by day "This is the No 1 tournament in the world.
Not just in terms of value, but also for its adaptability. It is the league that is the most flexible, adaptable and adjustable." "Whether the move to South Africa in 2009, to UAE in 2014 and 2020, and whether it being held in India the in most grueling of Covid situations and circumstances, it always emerged strong."
"There won't be any impact on the league in future. The decision to suspend is right and I am sure they will hold it again," Wadia told Cricbuzz.
BCCI has decided to make such a decision, with which Wadia fully agrees.
Certainly, it is a decision that is the best for preventing the spread of virus "Because, until this morning (Tuesday, May 4) the decision was not needed to be taken, that's why I look at this as a right decision at the right time," believes Wadia.
"It is very unfortunate but it is a decision that is correct under the current circumstances. I would say given the drastic increase in cases in the last two-three weeks, it has brought in a new dimension to the planning that was done at the beginning," he said.
Wadia is not worried about financial losses and says that the most important thing for him is that the players are healthy and that there are no "positive" cases in the team. "It is important that we considered the safety of the players.
That is the utmost important factor. Personally, I have not thought about the financial losses. We will deal with that later. Right now we are focusing on ensuring safe return of the players," he said.
