BCCI reassures IPL teams – ‘You are totally safe within the bubble’

BCCI reassures IPL teams - 'You are totally safe within the bubble'

Says teams are not playing to win, but for “something far more important, humanity”

The BCCI has told the eight teams in the IPL that they will not just be playing to win this time, but for something “much more important…humanity.”

Reassuring the franchises that everyone’s safety was the priority, the BCCI also confirmed that the tournament will carry on despite the raging Covid-19 pandemic in India, and that the IPL is “strengthening” the biosecure bubble for the rest of the tournament which is scheduled to end on May 30.

With India registering a record number of positive cases over the past 10 days, there has been a lot of apprehension both inside the IPL bubble as well outside about carrying on with the tournament. With countries barring travellers from India, overseas players from different teams have opted to return home with many more questioning how they will get back once their tournament was over.
