Sports Desk: The corona virus is seen to be hitting on the IPL. The match against Royal Challengers Bangalore was postponed on Monday after two Kolkata Knight Riders players Varun Chakraborty and Sandeep Warrier were found positive. Today, the match between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings in Delhi on Wednesday has also been postponed. Meanwhile, there is also a demand for cancellation of IPL 2021, for which a petition has been filed in the Delhi High Court. This petition has been converted into public interest.
Lawyer Karan Singh Thukral and social activist Inddar Mohan Singh have filed a petition in the Delhi High Court seeking immediate stay on IPL 2021. The petition said that it is inappropriate to hold an IPL match in Delhi at a time, especially when there is a shortage of beds, oxygen and essential medicines in hospitals and people are also facing problems in funeral of their loved ones. Not only this, in view of the current conditions in Delhi, the demand has also been raised to convert Arun Jaitley Stadium into a Covid Care Center.
It should be noted that former Indian cricketer Kirti Azad has talked about banning IPL. He said, I felt that all cricketers are in bio bubble and are safe in every way and are entertaining people. It is very unfortunate that players are being found positive in the Kovid-19 Test even after being in the bio bubble. This means that there is a lack of security. If such cases have come to light then the IPL should be stopped here.
