The outbreak of the pandemic coronavirus had a toll on all the sporting activities across the globe including the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had to postpone the league until April 15 which was scheduled to commence from March 29.

Going by the latest reports, Sourav Ganguly-led BCCI is waiting for the Indian Government and the Sports Ministry to come out with an official statement on visas. The board officials are likely to sit with the franchise officials and forward their decision to them when the 21-day lockdown ends on April 14 which also has a chance of extending further.
