Rajasthan Royals captain Steve Smith said – I am excited to see Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ryan Parag deferred the IPL from March 29 to April 15 due to Coronavirus, the tournament is still in trouble
Dainik Bhaskar Apr 08, 2020, 04:53 PM IST New Delhi. The IPL due to coronavirus from March 29 was postponed until April 15, but the tournament is still in trouble. In such a situation, former Indian fast bowler Ashish Nehra is hopeful that IPL can happen at the end of the year, not in April and August. Former Australian captain Steve Smith and England cricketer Jose Butler are also hopeful that the IPL will take place this year. However, T20 World Cup is also to be held in Australia in October. In such a situation, finding a window for the IPL is proving to be a crooked nail for the BCCI.
Nehra said at an event of Star Sports, "The IPL expected in April is extremely low. If the tournament is postponed, it will not be possible in August as it is a rainy season. Due to this, there will be full possibility of many matches being canceled. If the world-wide coronavirus is overcome by October, I am confident that the IPL will be 100 percent at the end of the year. "Ashish Nehra has so far taken 106 wickets in 88 matches of IPL at an average of 23.54. .
Lucky to see Yashasvi and Parag playing, Rajasthan Royals captain Steve Smith said he was excited to see young players Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ryan Parag playing. Smith said this in a conversation with fellow player Ish Sodhi on the Rajasthan Royals Facebook page. He said, the 17-year-old pollen plays with a teddy bear. He has dismissed Dhoni in the previous season. Yashasvi was the top scorer of the Under-19 World Cup. He is a quality player. We are lucky to see both of them playing for Rajasthan this year.
Have to fight Corona together, will think about the game later: Pujara, denying IPL and the game, Indian batsman Cheteshwar Pujara has talked about fighting Corona together. He told the English newspaper, "If we look at the biggest problem (corona) that people are facing today, we should not think about cricket at all right now."

"At the same time, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) coach and former New Zealand cricketer Brendon McCullum was seen resting at his home.
