It is certainly a piece of sad news for cricket fans and players, as IPL is still not happening. Now, Jos Buttler, the wicketkeeper-batsman from England, has said that it is a shame that the tournament can not be held at the moment.
Jos Buttler, the wicketkeeper-batsman from England, has said that he doesn’t know much about what discussions are going between the officials and management. At the moment, there is no accurate information available as on when things will come back to normal.
The 29-year-old said that IPL is a big tournament, and the revenue associated with the lucrative league is also quite huge. The league is quite important as far as cricket is concerned, and so, it is a big shame that the tournament might get canceled. Jos Buttler was all set to play for Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2020 together with some big players like Steve Smith, and Ben Stokes.
“I don’t know any more than you know about when IPL would be played or people talking about whether it can be pushed back. At the moment, everything is quite indefinite, as no one knows how long it will last. So it can’t be decided at the moment when it might or might not occur.”
“As for the stature of the tournament, it’s a huge, huge tournament. Revenue that is associated with IPL is huge. It is a very important competition to cricket, and it’s a big shame that it’s not going ahead or whether it does have the way to push it in the schedule and allow it,” Buttler stated as quoted by ESPNcricinfo.
