Amid suggestions and reports of squeezing in the IPL ahead of the T20 World Cup in October this year despite there being question marks on the world event taking place in Australia itself, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly made it clear that cricket in India has taken a backseat and there are no chances of the sport taking place in the country in the near future because of Covid-19 pandemic.

This makes the conduct of the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and T20 World Cup in jeopardy. Several countries have also prohibited migration, with the airline industry in the standstill.
Ganguly made the reference to Germany as the Budesliga football tournament is set to resume in front of empty stands.
