IPL 2021 Postponed Live News Updates: Sunrisers Hyderabad were set to play against Mumbai Indians in New Delhi on Tuesday before the competition was suspended due to rise in COVID-19 cases.
IPL 2021 LIVE News Updates: Having hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 has been postponed indefinitely on Tuesday. The decision ends a month-long relatively smooth run for cricket’s most glamorous event.
The announcement came after Sunrisers Hyderabad’s wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha tested positive for COVID-19 along with Delhi Capitals’ veteran spinner Amit Mishra. Earlier on Monday, Chennai Super Kings bowling coach L Balaji along with Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers Sandeep Warrier and Varun Chakravarthy had also returned positive results.
The tournament began on April 9 and ran smoothly before KKR’s COVID-19 cases caused the initial jitters. The final was planned for May 30.
