IPL 2020- Amidst coronavirus, BCCI looks to be bent on scheduling the IPL for July-September window

The BCCI looks for July-September to schedule full IPL series.  It could be played mostly a few games in India and few in overseas.

Due to the Covid19 outbreak most of the major competitive leagues around the world were postponed. With this, the BCCI seems to organize the IPL without cutting the duration of the existing league.

As per the reports, the BCCI deciding to schedule the IPL in between the July-September window as most of the international teams will be free including their boards around the world, barring leagues like ‘The Hundred’ and the Asia Cup T20 in the United Arab Emirates.

By taking the reference from South Africa’s IPL season, an official said if a window just above five weeks has made available as IPL in South Africa was played in 5weeks and days overall, then the IPL could be played partly in India and partly in the overseas. If not it could be entirely postponed depending on the situations and result of Coronavirus effect in the coming weeks.

The above points were the outcome of the owners’ meeting which was held on March 16th, which has ended with no substantial decision.

For the BCCI, July to September window looks free and preferable, apart from England and Pakistan rest of the cricketing nations are free from the packed window.
