“Humanity first, everything else comes second. The situation as not improved so there is no point in even talking about it. If IPL doesn’t happen so be it.”
There is no point in discussing anything at this point. The whole country is in lockdown. We have to deal with matters much important than IPL. He added.
“I can’t even think about the IPL at this time. It is irrelevant along with anything else. The only thing which is relevant is in what we are living and it is a world war three situation where we are fighting to help so many people.” He further added.
The cash-rich league is about to happen on April 15. But looking at the scenario this seems impossible to start by April 15.
“If the Olympics can be postponed by a year. IPL is a much smaller entity in that regard. It is becoming increasingly difficult to organize.”
“At this point, the government is not even thinking about allowing foreign visas.” Ness Wadia expressed his humble thoughts on tthe IPL.
