Vivo IPL 2021: Star Sports Understands and Supports BCCI for Suspending Vivo IPL 2021.

Vivo IPL 2021: The fourteenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) got suspended on Tuesday for indefinite time after multiple covid-positive cases came inside the biosecure bubble. Star Sports, the official broadcaster of the Vivo IPL 2021 said that the organisation stands with the BCCI in support of their decision of suspension.

The development was confirmed after two more players were tested covid-positive. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha and Delhi Capitals (DC) spinner Amit Mishra were found to be covid positive on Tuesday.

BCCI in a statement said that the board does not want to compromise with the safety of the involved players, support staff, commentators and the broadcasters hence they have decided to postpone the elite T20 competition.

“Star India supports BCCI’s decision to postpone IPL 2021. The health and safety of players, staff and everyone involved in the IPL are of paramount importance. We thank the BCCI, IPL Governing Council, players, franchisees and sponsors for their support,” Star India said in a statement hours after the BCCI decision.

Earlier, on Monday, CSK bowling coach L Balaji while on Tuesday batting coach Michael Hussey were also tested positive for the dreaded coronavirus. Two KKR players – Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier – were also found covid-positive.

Star Sports said that it is “indebted” to its crew who did everything possible to deliver a quality and entertaining IPL in these testing times. It also appreciated the efforts of the employees, on-air talent, production, and broadcast crews for their service.
