BCCI and MCA went on to assure that IPL will go ahead as per schedule despite the spike in COVID-19 cases across the country.

“We have had a call from the city municipal commissioner,” Cricbuzz quoted an MCA office-bearer as saying. “The association has been assured that the lockdown measures will have no impact on the IPL games. The other cricketing activities will, however, have to be immediately stopped.

All cricket activities which are part of bio-secure bubble will be permitted to go-ahead while others outside it will have to be stopped.  “Any cricket activity that is part of a bio-secure bubble will be permitted uninterrupted,” the official added.

On Saturday, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly had said IPL matches in Mumbai will go ahead as planned citing how the event was held in UAE last year.

“Lockdown in a way will be better since not many people will be around. So it will be restricted to few people who will undergo regular tests inside the bio-bubble,” Sourav told The Telegraph. “The IPL matches will be held in Mumbai. Once you are in a bubble nothing happens. Even in the UAE last season, there were a few such incidents in the lead-up to the event but once the tournament started everything was fine.”
