Bhuvi – who has said that the cash-rich Indian Premier League must happen – will have to wait as the T20 tournament got postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic and there is no certainty when will it be rescheduled. Considering the rampant rise in COVID-19 cases in the country, it is highly unlikely that the tournament will take place this year.

Kumar recently revealed why the Indian pacers have been successful of late.
“It doesn’t matter who is bowling from the other end. Because I have to do what I have to do. But since both Mohammad Shami and Jasprit Bumrah are senior players, in a few words we are able to communicate with each other what the batsman is trying to do. It is like our bowling partnership. We don’t have to tell each other much. We make a conscious effort to bowl well and maintain the pressure from both ends,” he said in the second episode of ESPNcricinfo Cricketbaazi.
The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly has confirmed that no cricket will take place at least till August.
