IPL suspended due to Covid

The Indian Premier League (IPL) Twenty20 cricket tournament has been suspended due to the Covid-19 crisis.

At this stage there is no scheduled restart date.

Over the weekend the match between the Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) was postponed due to two Kolkata players tested positive. However, there has been widespread criticism that the tournament has continued.

This latest decision comes as India had over 350,000 Covid-19 cases for the 13th day in a row.

In total there are 10 Black Caps, including captain Kane Williamson, in the competition. There are also as many as seven New Zealand support staff.
