New Delhi, July 6
BCCI president Sourav Ganguly on Monday reckoned the nation should bear with the COVID-19 pandemic at the least until the tip of this yr or starting of 2021, successfully ruling out India’s possibilities of organising the sought-after IPL at residence.
Responding to a query on how he appears on the COVID-19 scenario in India throughout a chat with opener Mayank Agarwal, Ganguly stated, “I think the next two-three-four months will be a little tough. We will just have to bear it, and by the end of the year or beginning of next year, life should be back to normal.”
The BCCI has already zeroed in on the ending September-early November window for the IPL.
The board’s first selection is staging the match at residence however that’s wanting more and more unlikely with India having the third largest caseload of coronavirus behind Brazil and USA.
New Zealand on Monday turned the newest nation after the UAE and Sri Lanka to current a proposal to host the IPL in case the billion greenback league cannot be held in India as a result of rising instances of coronavirus.
“Life will be normal once the #COVIDー19 vaccine is out. You will have to be a little more careful. Saliva is an issue and that is why you wear a mask,” @SGanguly99 tells @mayankcricket on #DadaOpensWithMayank

Speaking on the present #DadaOpensWithMayank, the previous India captain stated, “I will wait for the vaccine to come out. Till then, yes, we will have to be a little more careful…we know what’s happening and we don’t want to fall sick. Saliva is an issue. Maybe once the vaccine comes out, just like any other illness, everything will be fine.”
The pandemic might have modified the world ceaselessly however the cricketer in Ganguly in contrast the fast-evolving scenario with batting ways which helps a batsman to play in keeping with the pitches.
“It’s like batting tactic, it’s not same on all pitches, you play differently on slower pitches, you play differently when it turns and you play differently when it is flat. So COVID is at that stage, the stage of recovery,” he stated.
“Hopefully, by the end of this year we all should be fine,” Ganguly informed Agarwal on the present hosted by the India opener. PTI
