In the wake of Covid-19 cases at Kolkata Knight Riders, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is discussing the possibility of moving the remainder of the Indian Premier League (IPL) to one venue, NDTV has learnt. Mumbai might be that venue with the city having three stadiums to host matches. BCCI has already made calls to hotels in Mumbai for creating bio-bubbles for eight teams. This means that the Kolkata and Bangalore leg of the IPL may be scrapped.
Two players at KKR, Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier, tested positive for Covid-19 on Monday leading to the IPL rescheduling the match between KKR and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Ahmedabad on the same day.
