Initially, BCCI announced that IPL 2020 will begin from 29th March however, because of the pandemic, the board has deferred the tournament until 15th April.

This is the first time in IPL history that a viral disease outbreak has forced the BCCI to change the schedule. As the situation is getting worse day by day, many fans believe that the competition may get cancelled this year. In this case, all the parties involved in the tournament will suffer massive losses. While the BCCI is bound to lose out on a lot of money, the broadcasters, Star Sports will lose advertising revenue.
