This ban will come into force from 13 March 2020. In this, all foreign players who were coming to India for the IPL have also been banned. In such a situation, no player will be able to join the IPL 2020 for about half a month, that is until April 15.

Let me tell you that even before this, the Government of Maharashtra has decided that either the match is canceled or the sale of tickets should be banned so that no spectators can come to watch the IPL match on the ground. Because in such a situation, the spread of coronavirus is the highest and anyone can get infected.

Tope told reporters that the state cabinet discussed the coronavirus and IPL matches.
