Reports suggest that England Cricket Board is in contact with the players and is under pressure to bring them back.

Meanwhile, renowned journalist Piers Morgan reckoned that given the horrific scenario in India, the lucrative cricket league should be brought to an halt as there are other important issues to deal with.

Morgan tweeted: “The Indian Premier League should not continue given the horrific Covid crisis in India due to Prime Minister @narendramodi‘s woefully irresponsible leadership. The country’s sole focus should be on the raging pandemic. Cricket is irrelevant.”

It would now be interesting to see if IPL continues the way it has been or will it get suspended?
