Because of the current pandemic, COVID-19, almost all Leagues and series of Cricket have either been postponed or cancelled.
India vs South Africa series, which was scheduled to be played in March 2020 was called off because of the rise in pandemic disease.
Similarly, the most watched league in India and one of the best cricket league in the World, Indian Premier League (IPL) has been also postponed until 15 April 2020.
Now the world cup winning and Chennai Super Kings Harbajhan Singh has said that he is fine if IPL will be played in front of empty stands.
Talking to Star Sports, Harbajhan Singh said that spectators are important but if the situation demands, I don’t mind playing without spectators.
“Spectators are important, but if the situation arises, I don’t mind playing without them. Yes, as a player I won’t get the vibe, but this will ensure that every fan will get to watch IPL on their TV,” Harbhajan Singh told Star Sports.
Harbajhan further said that we will have to be very cautious and should ensure players’ safety very well.
“We will have to be cautious about everything and should prioritise players’ safety by ensuring that the match venues, team hotels, flights are properly sanitized. A lot of lives are on line so we should organise IPL when everything is fine,” he added.
Talking about himself, he said that he was keen to play IPL and cricket matches after a gap of year.
Said that he will keep himself fit if IPL 2020 happens.
“I miss matches the most, I was hoping that I would get to play 17 matches after a year’s gap,” Harbhajan said.
“I miss our visits to the ground, the hordes of fans waiting to greet us, the bikes that used to ride along our bus and am sure that every fan is missing this as well.
“I hope that IPL happens soon, till then I will keep myself fit.”
