BCCI president Sourav Ganguly's brainchild, an IPL All-Star game, which was scheduled to be held on March 25th at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai has been called off and is unlikely to take place before the start of the new IPL season.

IPL franchises from Northern and Eastern India (Kings XI Punjab, Delhi Capitals, Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals) were to form a team to take on players from franchises belonging to Southern and Western India (Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Chennai Super Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad).

However, due to the franchises' continued reluctance and lack of communication between them and the BCCI have resulted in it being scrapped off before the start of IPL 2020.
