BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has been monitoring the situation after 13 members of the Chennai Super Kings tested positive for coronavirus. Reacting for the first time on it Saurav Ganguly said it has to be seen whether three-time champions CSK can start IPL 2020 as per the schedule.
“I cannot comment on the situation of CSK. We will see if they can start as per schedule. I hope the IPL will be conducted well. We have a long schedule for the tournament and I sincerely hope everything will go on just fine,” Sourav Ganguly told the Kolkata Times.
Ganguly, who was shooting for a commercial film at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, however, said people will have to accept the new reality.
“The entire world is coping with the crisis. Football and cricket matches are being conducted to empty stadiums globally. We will also have to accept that reality. I have started working and do our work. I am not a full-fledged sports person anymore, I am half-and-half. I am balancing between family, cricket, BCCI and media work,” he added.
There is also delay in releasing the schedule after the COVID-19 cases hitting the CSK camp.
