News Daily Digital Desk: The corona virus has reached alarming proportions across Maharashtra. The number of victims has been increasing since last March. But the Wankhede Stadium has got permission to host the IPL. According to the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA), cricketers have to abide by the rules. The match will be played in a stadium without spectators. Besides, it was informed that if you go to watch the match sitting in the gallery, you will need a negative certificate this time. But soon after the announcement, the decision changed again. The board said field staff and cricket-related officials would not need a cowardly negative report to watch the game.
The 14th season of the mega tournament has started on Friday in Corona. Kohli’s RCB lost to five-time champions Mumbai in the opening match. Dhoni’s Chennai and Panther’s Delhi will face each other in the second match at Wankhede. And before that comes the new guideline. Many spectators and officials associated with cricket organizations may come to the stadium to watch the match, even if the general public is not allowed to do so. However, in that case you will have to enter the stadium with a negative certificate. This means that you are not infected with Corona virus, you have to prove it by RT-PCR test. Even those who have been vaccinated need to submit a corona test report. But shortly after the announcement, the Indian board abruptly backtracked. According to an all-India media report, no one has to submit the report to watch the match for the time being.

In fact, several cricketers and stadium workers have been affected by Corona since before the start of the IPL (IPL 2021). In all, a total of 13 people were infected with the deadly virus in Wankhede. Again, Corona put her hands on the bodies of several people, including Akshar Patel and Angel Parikkal. The IPL is being held in six cities to protect the cricketers. Wangkhede has also been allowed to host matches with Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, Ahmedabad and Chennai. But the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) does not want to compromise on the protection of cricketers. So this decision was made. However, the real BCCI abruptly deviated from its earlier announcement.
