Sourav Ganguly, the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) admitted that it could face losses of up to Rs. 2500 crore if this year’s Indian Premier League is not completed.
The IPL 2021 was abruptly halted this week after a string of COVID-19 cases were reported across the bio-bubbles of four teams. It is reported that IPL 2021 could resume in September but this is yet to be confirmed.
“There has got to be a lot of shuffling. Only a day has passed since we suspended the IPL. We have to speak to other boards and see if a window can be made available before the T20 World Cup,” Ganguly told The Telegraph.
“Lot of things are involved and we will slowly start working on them. If we fail to complete the IPL, the loss will be close to INR 2500 crore (USD 340 million approx). That is going by early estimates,” he added.
