The IPL 2021 edition was suspended with immediate effect on Tuesday after there was a rise in COVID-19 cases among the franchise teams. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is now looking for a September window to resume the tournament according to a Cricbuzz report. 

"A September window is being considered. By then the England-India series would be over and the foreign player would be ready for the T20 World Cup. That small window is being explored," said a franchise official.

The Chairman of the IPL British Patel has also said that the board is looking for a window in September. Now we have to look for a window. If we get one, we will explore holding it. We'll have to see if it is possible in September. We need to examine the plans of the ICC and other boards,” he said. 

SRH’s Wriddhiman Saha, DC’s Amit Mishra and KKR’s Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrior and CSK’s bowling coach L. Balaji had tested positive in a span of two days. 

In an exclusive chat with One Cricket earlier in the day, DDCA President Rohan Jaitley has said that the board had suspended the tournament as a precautionary measure. “As a precautionary measure, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to suspend the IPL for now. Health of the players and everyone is primary and the most important thing,” Rohan said. 

SRH were slated to play MI in Delhi on Tuesday while RCB were scheduled to take on KKR on Monday in Ahmedabad.
