The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has been suspended by the BCCI after a few players and members of the support staff tested positive for the Covid-19.

“IPL suspended for this season,” BCCI vice president Rajiv Shukla told ANI.

On Monday, two Kolkata Knight Riders players had tested positive for Covid-19 before reports emerged that even CSK bowling coach L Balaji returned with two RT-PCR positive results.

Meanwhile, Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha also tested positive for Covid-19, the Sunrisers Hyderabad confirmed on Tuesday.

The Sunrisers were scheduled to play the defending champions Mumbai Indians in New Delhi today.
