BCCI president Sourav Ganguly reckons that official updates on IPL can be expected to be announced by Monday once he has a conversation with the other office-bearers of BCCI. The BCCI suspended the IPL till April 15 which was originally scheduled to take place from March 29 after the government suspended all visas, barring few categories like diplomatic and employment, making it impossible for foreign players to participate.
As per the quotes in the New Indian Express, Ganguly said, “I will be able to give an update on that on Monday after speaking to the other office-bearers (of BCCI). But practically speaking, when life has come to a standstill everywhere in the world, where does sport have a future in this.”
Sourav termed the current coronavirus crisis as ‘terrible’, saying that he has never experienced anything like this in his entire life.
BCCI president said, “It’s terrible. In my 46 years of life, I never experienced anything like this. Not just that, the world has never seen anything like this. And I hope nobody sees this situation again. The entire world is thinking how many people may die in the next two weeks! It’s unbelievable.”
Ganguly also went on to revealed his daily routine in this lockdown period and said he has been doing BCCI and ICC work amid the self-isolation due to coronavirus outbreak.
Sourav Ganguly further elaborated, “Locked down like everyone else, I am at home with family. These are rare moments in the sense that others normally stay at home. I’m doing some BCCI and ICC work. I rest, watch a bit of TV, do a bit of fitness training at the gym I have at home. The lesson is, it’s one life. So be happy, live every day and live up to potential. You just have live your life in whatever way you can and do what makes you happy. That’s very important.”
