Saurav Ganguly confirmed IPL going ahead
Inspite of strict lockdowns being imposed in Maharashtra with night curfews and weekend strict curfews, the BCCI supremo Sourav Ganguly has clearly stated that IPL will go ahead as scheduled and there are no plans of shifting matches out of Mumbai as once people are in bio bubbles they are safe .
The BCCI is also thinking of players’ vaccination ahead of the IPL with BCCI vice president Rajeev Shukla saying that the board will get in touch with the Health Ministry for players’ vaccination.
“In order to cope with this Coronavirus rise, I think the only solution is to get vaccinated. BCCI is also thinking on those lines that players should be vaccinated. Nobody knows when coronavirus is going to end and you can’t give a deadline that by this time frame, it will not be there so players can play easily. So, I think now will have to think over that. Vaccination should be done for the players also,” Shukla told ANI.
