IPL 2021 Suspended: How a 10-Minute Call Decided The Fate of Covid-19-Hit IPL
10 minutes is all it took to seal the fate of the cash-rich Indian Premier League on Tuesday. Keeping things short and simple, BCCI secretary Jay Shah informed the IPL general Council that it would be unable to carry on with the tournament after the bio-bubble breach. Shah also told the GC members that the safety of the players is the top priority of the board and once cannot compromise on that.
As per a report in The Indian Express, one member actually wanted the lucrative T20 league to continue, but others disagreed and that sealed the fate. Things started going from bad to worse once SRH star Wriddhiman Saha tested positive ahead of the game with Mumbai Indians.
