Saurav Ganguly once told PTI that IPL is all set and is very much on schedule. Being the BCCI president he even assures that they will take extreme care while the players will play on ground to make sure that coronavirus is tackled. He says that all measures are set in place to tackle rapidly spreading novel coronavirus that has already created havoc on the sporting calendars globally.
T20 event already went underway on March 29 in Mumbai that featured both Indian and International players on the same pitch. The patient count in India for coronavirus is growing as well and the total headcount includes Italian tourists as well. The deadly disease is declared pandemic and has spread over 85 countries affecting nearly about a lakh people.
Saurav Ganguly says that the tournaments are held everywhere and they are going on pretty well, hence, IPL is also very much on schedule. There are no issues in conducting IPL series. Teams are already travelling to different places around the world. They are travelling to Abu Dhabi and UAE to play, so there are no threats.
He was even asked about the preventive measure that the teams will take to ensure they don’t possess a threat to novel #coronavirus. To this, he says that the medical team is working to thrash out the specifics that will prevent it from spreading to a great extent. He adds that they will make sure all preventive measures are taken aptly and everyone does as the doctors say. Though he is not sure of the exact measure to be taken. They will know about it only when the medical team tells them about it. Every issue will be addressed by the medical team efficiently and the tournament will go on as planned.
