IPL Governing Council chairman Brijesh Patel was told Sportstar on Tuesday. “We have suspended the IPL for now. The new statement will be worked out later. A statement will follow come soon,”
Rajeev Shukla said that, “I want to make it clear that Indian Premier League 2021 has been not cancelled. It has been only postponed, it has been suspended, it has been deferred, so it will happen. The remaining part of this year’s IPL will happen. But in due cases, when the Covid-19 situation improves, a decision will be taken about it,”
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) official also added that this decision has been taken keeping the players and also their families’ concerns in mind.
What Next After IPL postponed?

As for the Kiwis, they can still fly out to their county so can the English cricketers, but they will have to quarantine in government.
Specified hotels for ten days and undergo tests on the second and the 8th day. Another issue here will be most transit flights are from UAE and that stands postponed. Bangladesh cricketers can hop across the border by road if need be with air route suspended.
