The Indian Premier League (IPL) is the world’s top Twenty 20 Cricket League, drawing the best cricketers from India and across the world. Its season usually takes place between March and June.

But for the first time in its history, the IPL was suspended indefinitely in April – weeks after India went into lockdown to curb the spread of COVID-19.

There has been some chatter of restricting the league to only Indian players due to International travel restrictions, but not all teams have warmed to the idea.

Cancelling the massively popular tournament would also mean a massive revenue loss of $530m for Board of Control for Cricket in India. (BCCI)
