The BCCI could not in any way compromise the safety of the support staff to the players or anyone else who was involved in organizing the tournament. Friends, this decision has been taken keeping in mind the safety, health and well-being of all. This is a very difficult time, especially in India and at such a time, we tried to instill some positivity and enthusiasm among the people.
Friends, but now it has been decided to postpone the tournament. All those involved will now return home to their families and close ones. So that friends can stay with their loved ones in this test. All players and coaching staff who were in the bio bubble will be subjected to corona test. Friends, for your information, they will be allowed to go home only after the report comes negative. The board will ensure that the player returning home after leaving the bio bubble does not have any problem going there.
