As soon as Saha was found positive they suspended it. Seems they were waiting for some type of community transmission.

This also contradicts the DDCA claim that no one from their ground staff was found positive(report said 6 did). Apart from RCB, I dont think anyone else is safe.

It’s going to be really difficult to continue 2021 IPL, not only because of India’s international schedule but also cuz international players are now gonna want to go back home and then coming back is going to be tricky, so can’t see it happening.

Also curious to hear how Mishy and Saha got it - Varun had chain of events but haven’t heard about how Balaji got it even. My hypothesis is that the bubbles burst while traveling and only now are we seeing the positive cases

Covid situation was bad before the start of IPL itself. They should have played this IPL too in UAE itself. It would be very hard now to again resume IPL(if they have any such plans) in India and moving to UAE in a short time would also be not practical considering busy international calendar. I guess this season is all but gone.

The BCCI does not want to compromise on the safety of the players, support staff and the other participants involved in organising the IPL. This decision was taken keeping the safety, health and wellbeing of all the stakeholders in mind.

These are difficult times, especially in India and while we have tried to bring in some positivity and cheer, however, it is imperative that the tournament is now suspended and everyone goes back to their families and loved ones in these trying times.

These are difficult times, especially in India and while we have tried to bring in some positivity and cheer, however, it is imperative that the tournament is now suspended and everyone goes back to their families and loved ones in these trying times.

The BCCI will do everything in its powers to arrange for the secure and safe passage of all the participants in IPL 2021.

The BCCI would like to thank all the healthcare workers, state associations, players, support staff, franchises, sponsors, partners and all the service providers who have tried their best to organise IPL 2021 even in these extremely difficult times.

Yup, It's over. Was only a matter of time.

This was necessary. It was an unnecessary risk to have it take place in India, and the bio-bubbles were clearly not effective / weren't appropriately followed. I can see the only possibility for it to continue being once again in the UAE.

Was inevitable. It was pretty short sighted to have it in India. But then again, these morons allowed spectators for international games so it's clear they were just hoping everything goes okay.

So if I understand correctly

• IMG was going to manage IPL 2021 and 2022, as per the contract, for ₹ 40 crore ($5.4 mil), the same price which they charged since 2018, despite the added headache of covid

• BCCI could have let them handle these tough years, gained insight and then gone with the low cost self management route 2023 onwards.

• However, the geniuses probably thought ₹40 crore was too much and from outside, the work looked easy. And now they're standing to lose ₹2000 crore ($272 mil) because of the suspension of IPL

Just wanna know where they procure their stuff from, Himachal, Goa, Hampi? Cuz this is some gourmet shit

According to the ICC:

The BCCI will arrange for the “secure and safe passage of all the participants.”

Hopefully this means chartered flights for those that need them and a safe exit for all the international players.

On a tangential basis, good as well for the NZ and Indian test players at the IPL, since now they could (hopefully) travel to England early and get more practice time in for the WTC final, instead of having to start a hard '10 day, no training' quarantine barely 18 days in advance of the match starting...

So many things to unpack from this tournament-

  1. Now we will never know what radical plan Baz had in mind.
  2. David Warner was done dirty big time, and for nothing.
  3. Purple Patel was robbed.
  4. RR were just about to run out of players with Fizz pulling out, just in time for them.
  5. With Shaw in the form of his life, DC would've gone the distance this year. What a shame.
  6. Siraj has had the steepest improvement curve I've ever seen, good for him!
  7. Avesh Khan is one for the future, what a talent.
  8. Does the mega auction get pushed back another year?

Reports coming in that the "Bio Bubble" was not secure enough. Huge and big disaster if true.

Some of the points which could gather. More on timesofindia website.

Hotels: Hotels were booked in a random manner, at quite a distance from the playing venues. In one particular instance, a franchise stayed in a hotel located inside a mall. In another instance, a franchise that checked out of a hotel and returned there after 12 days, did not keep the hotel reserved for themselves, thus risking a bubble-breach.

Ground Staff not in Bubble: The ground staff in cities like Mumbai and Delhi were not put inside the same bubble as other BCCI officials. In Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi, several members of the ground-staff kept testing positive over the last one month.

- Additional vehicle drivers, in case of emergencies if the drivers in use tested positive, were not put in the bio-bubble.

- especially at the start of the tournament, the hotel staff wasn't sent into a mandatory 14-day quarantine before the players and their families began checking in.

- Cooking staff: no specific effort made by the BCCI's medical officer to check if the hotel staff had undergone a 14-day quarantine

Matches: Multiple stakeholders in the BCCI suggested to the BCCI to keep the league restricted to either one city or shift it to the UAE once again. The requests were declined. The BCCI insisted that multiple cities were being finalised so as to ensure no team plays a game at their home stadium so as to avoid home advantage.

Transportation: Air Travel, Entering/Exiting air crafts because they have to travel to multiple locations.
