One of the most established T20 leagues in the world, IPL, suffered a major blow on Tuesday. After multiple players tested positive from different camps, BCCI along with IPL governing council decided to officially suspend IPL 2021 for an indefinite time.
All the franchises have been put into strict quarantine for at least 6 days with mandatory tests. The medical teams are also monitoring the condition of players after the rise in COVID cases inside the bio-bubbles.
Amidst all this, BCCI is trying its best to send the foreign players back home in the safest possible way.
The suspension of the league certainly disappointed the fans and they were quick to express their thoughts on Twitter.
Here are some of the reactions:
