Veteran Indian player, Irfan Pathan, said that this news is sheds a ray of hope for Cricketers across the globe. Considering even T20 World Cup was supposed to happen, IPL 2020 was getting sidelined. However, Pathan believes that Australia follows every rule to the last letter. As a result, if BCCI can conduct IPL during the time when T20 was supposed to commence, there can be no better news for players.

The statement coming from Sourav Ganguly as the president of BCCI that the IPL will happen at some stage, that’s great news not only for Indian cricketers but for all cricketers around the world as well. I’m looking forward to it as well. That does give a lot of reassurance to all the cricketers.”
