The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday cancelled its video conference call with the IPL Franchises due to the Global Coronavirus Outbreak.
The conference call was scheduled to discuss the prospects of the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League, which has already been postponed, amid the growing health issues caused by the pandemic disease.
“Today’s conference call between BCCI Officials and IPL Franchises stands cancel,” a BCCI official told the reporters.
The official added that a decision is on a fresh date for the conference call.
On March 13, BCCI decided to suspend the 13th edition of the IPL until April 15 as a precautionary measure to curb the spread of Coronavirus.

“If Olympics can be postponed by a year, IPL is a much smaller entity in that regard. It is becoming increasingly difficult to organise. At this point the government is not even thinking about allowing foreign visas,” the BCCI official said..
Last week, the BCCI had also asked its employees to work from home as the concerns over the pandemic outbreak continued to rise in the country.
