IPL in October or November if T20 World Cup is postponed

BCCI apex council member Anshuman Gaekwad on Wednesday was quoted as saying that IPL-2020 could be held in October-November this year if T20 World Cup is postponed. This comes a day after Rajasthan Royals COO Jake Lush McCrum stated that the BCCI is definitely working towards organizing the 13th edition of IPL this very year.

To be sure, the Union Ministry of Home Affairs most recently allowed "sports complexes and stadia to reopen", provided spectators are not permitted during the lockdown period. Progressively, this could result in matches to be permitted without crowds sometime after August or so.

Outlook has quoted the Rajasthan Royals COO as saying that BCCI is working hard to find a solution. "They are an agile association and can make it happen. We are confident that IPL will happen this year," he added.

Gaekwad's latest statement suggests that some possibility does exist for the IPL to be held this year.
