IPL 2021: The 14th season of the Indian Premier League, the IPL, is being held in India amid the Coronavirus epidemic. It is being organized in a bio-bubble (corona-safe environment for players). Though there were some cases initially, the tournament was not affected, but now the shadow of the corona is hovering over IPL 2021 as the 30th match of the IPL season has been postponed.
In fact, the 30th match of the 14th season of the IPL was scheduled to be played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad today i.e. Varun Chakraborty and Sandeep Warrier have been found infected with coronavirus from Kolkata knight riders camp. In such a situation, the match has to be postponed.
According to the Cricinfo report, the match between Kolkata and Bangalore has been postponed today as many players of the Kolkata team have been found infected with coronavirus and are not keeping well. It has been decided to postpone the KKR vs RCB match. The official announcement is expected shortly from now.
The IPL was also played in the bio-bubble in the UAE last year, but not a single match was postponed, but this time the IPL in India has created such a dilemma that the match is being postponed. The reason behind this is that KKR players may have come in contact with each other as well. These steps are being taken to stop the same chain.
