It may be considered to increase the date of the Indian Premier League (IPL) governing council tournament from November 8 to November 10. All the stakeholders behind it – especially broadcasters Star India – have a chance to make more use of the Diwali 2020 date. Any final decision on this will be taken in the meeting of the Governing Council to be held in the next three days. This year, Diwali is on 14 November.

The extension of two days means that the Indian team will fly directly from the UAE for the India tour of Australia 2020 and will not come to India.

The IPL schedule was announced between 19 September to 8 November. These dates are being discussed since last one week. However, when the IPL GC meeting on weekend ends this weekend through teleconferencing, it may be considered to extend the final two days. This will increase the tournament from 51 days to 53 days.

    In the IPL auction, Rajasthan Royals bought him for Rs 2.40 crore. Yashasvi's plan was to continue his form of the Under-19 World Cup played in South Africa. He scored 400 runs in six matches there. Average was 133.33. However, this 18-year-old batsman is now forced to stay at his home.

    Jaiswal told our colleague Times of India, 'Right now the whole world is fighting the corona virus. This is the biggest difficulty in human history, then the safety of human beings comes first.

    Not playing in the IPL is naturally quite disappointing for him. He said, 'I was very excited about playing in the IPL for the first time and that too for the Royals. My preparation was very good. I was scoring runs everywhere, including the Under-19 World Cup. I was eagerly waiting to meet the world's top cricketers, such as Jose Butler, Steve Smith and top coaches like Shane Warne. I wanted to know how these top players prepare before the match and how I can learn from them.

    What are they doing during this unsolicited break? To this, Jaiswal said, 'I am doing my regular workouts and meditation at home. My coach (cum mentor) Jwala (Singh) sir is giving me many important tips about life and sports. He is telling me that using this time, I should develop some small and necessary habits which can help me to remain positive in difficult circumstances. I am noting those things. I am finding out how important habits are. '

  • Ravi Bishnoi

    Bishnoi's career was set to gain momentum that the corona virus put a brake on it. Everyone saw the magic of Vishnoi's spin in the Under-19 World Cup. His googly surprised everyone. He was then selected for the IPL. Bishnoi said, 'After the World Cup, I wanted to show my talent in the IPL but now I have to wait. I cannot complain that this is the situation for everyone. I was thinking that if I did well in the IPL, the national selectors would also notice it. The youngster, who hails from Jodhpur, Rajasthan, was included in his team by Kings XI Punjab for two crore rupees.

  • Did not get a chance to go to camp

    In the Under-19 World Cup, Legi, who took 17 wickets, said, 'Due to family work I came straight home from South Africa. I did not even attend the National Cricket Academy's 15-day camp. I was to be a part of the training camp of Kings XI Punjab from 18 March. But in the meantime the lockdown happened. The camp did not take place and Bishnoi could not even meet legendary leg-spinner Anil Kumble. Kumble is the head coach of Kings XI. I wanted to learn a lot by meeting Anil sir. I hope there will be IPL and I will get a chance to talk to them.

  • Continuation of fitness is going on

    To maintain fitness level, Bishnoi does an hour workout every day on his terrace. The program has been prepared by the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) physio and trainer. He said, 'The association has formed a group of cricketers which includes me. We are asked to do different exercises according to different days. We also have to send videos of our workouts for review.

  • Ryan pollen

    Rajasthan Royals bought Parag for Rs 20 lakhs. At the age of 17 years 175 days, he became the youngest batsman to score a half century in the IPL. In the 2019 season, he scored 160 runs in seven matches. He averaged 32 and a strike rate of 126.98.

  • Safety is most important

    Parag told the Times of India from Guwahati, “It is a difficult time and it is a strange feeling of not having cricket but at the moment the safety of the people is most important.”

  • Soon there will be 'Halla Bol' on the ground

    He is very focused on his diet to stay fit. He says that it is very challenging for him to stay away from cricket. Parag hoped that soon the team would be seen performing Halla Bol (the official song of Rajasthan Royals) on the field.

  •     Sarfaraz Khan

    Sarfaraz scored 928 runs in six matches for Mumbai in the Ranji season. His average was 154.66. Sarfaz was ready to explode in the IPL. A good performance could also open the way for them in the future. He was bought by Kings XI Punjab for Rs 25 lakh, though he could get more.

  • Had no idea it would last so long

    Sarfaraz says, 'I was playing in a local T20 tournament in Bhopal when the IPL was postponed for the first time. Abbu (and his coach Naushad Khan) came to pick me up in a car from Mumbai. He said, 'Let's go to village Azamgarh for four-five days. I had no idea that the lockdown would last so long. Now since I was in very good form, I have been left out of the IPL. But I also know that the first priority of the BCCI is the safety of all. He did what he did right. I can only do what is under my control. Sarfaraz is currently in Chhatarpur village, 17 km from Azamgarh in Uttar Pradesh, which is his maternal grandfather.

  • Watching videos of old players

    The 22-year-old batsman said that he is practicing on the terrace with his father in these circumstances. He also said that after the start of Ramadan, he is doing batting with a hanging ball and does some fitness exercises after Iftari. Sarfaraz, like most cricketers, is watching old videos. He said that he is trying to learn by watching videos of old batsmen. He is watching videos of Vivian Richards.

Our affiliate newspaper Times of India reported last week that the broadcasters are not very happy with this schedule. And he has lodged his objections about it. Star wants to make the most of Diwali week. After this, the IPL Governing Council decided to get it done from September 19 instead of 26. This reduced the league to 51 days instead of 44.

If the date is extended this time also, this will be the first time the league finals will not take place on Sunday (IPL Final 2020). It is Tuesday on 10 November. But people watching the matter closely say, 'If the entire week of Diwali is the weekend, then there will be no problem in it.

IPL will start from September 19, final will be held on November 8IPL will start from September 19, final will be held on November 8

BCCI sources had earlier said that it would not be possible to make the final date from 8 to 10 November as the Indian team has to leave for Australia immediately after the IPL due to the commitments made with Cricket Australia. That is, if the date is extended then the Indian team will leave for Australia directly after the tournament from the UAE. Although the first plan was that the players would return to India before going there.

A source closely observing the matter says, “Even those players with no IPL match remaining will remain in the UAE and practice in the camp there. As soon as the IPL ends, the rest of the players – who were busy playing knock out matches – will join the rest of the team and the entire team will fly together from there.

All these decisions are still being considered and the final decision will be taken in the meeting of the Governing Council.
