The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has been unable to host the 13th edition of the IPL due to coronavirus. The BCCI is planning to host the IPL next October-November. But the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has set a date for the suspension of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) upon which Indian board requested Pakistan no to host PSL but they reject the request.
If the IPL is not played on the field, the Indian board will face huge losses. BCCI officials, therefore, want to organize the IPL by any means. If not for the Asia Cup T20 World Cup, the BCCI is determined to organize this franchise-based league. Corona’s situation has created uncertainty about the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup.
However, Pakistan, the host of the Asia Cup, said they were ready to host the Asia Cup. If the regulatory body ACC wants and the situation improves a bit, they will host the Asia Cup. However, whether it is the Asia Cup or not, the PCB will host the matches of the knockout stage of the PSL in November.
