The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to discuss the future of IPL 2020 over a conference call meeting with franchises next Tuesday. Earlier in the month, the 13th edition of the cash-rich league was postponed to April 15 from March 29 by the BCCI.
The postponement was done in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak that has affected the entire cricket community.
According to reports from TOI, any further advancements in the organization of IPL 2020 will be discussed at the conference call meeting scheduled for March 24. The source stated that having a meeting in person wouldn't be feasible given the present crisis. Since the BCCI had asked their employees to work from home, conference call emerged as the best option. Most of the Indian state cricket boards had shut down their offices and asked their employees to work from home instead.
