The matter of banning the Indian Premier League (IPL) to be organized by the Board of Control for Cricket in India reached the Supreme Court on Thursday. The Supreme Court has asked a lawyer and petitioner Mohan Babu Aggarwal to file the petition on the regular bench. The petitioner had called for the postponement of the Indian Premier League due to the coronavirus. At the same time, BCCI sources said that due to the cancellation of the visa of 15 countries, no foreign players will play in this tournament till 15 April.
Let us tell you that Corona is expected to be killed in this tournament played from 29 March to 24 May. An application has also been filed in the Madras High Court to ban this. The lawyer who filed the application in the Kerala High Court G. Alex Benziger has filed a petition. A bench of Justices MM Sudhindra and Krishnan Ramaswamy may hear this on Thursday.
The petitioner states that according to the WHO website, no specific medicines or prevention treatment for the coronavirus exist so far. It is spreading rapidly throughout the world and is creating an epidemic-like situation.
Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said on Wednesday that the government has only two options given the state of Corona in the state. First to postpone IPL matches and second to organize matches without ticket sales.
