The 14th edition of the cash-rich IPL has been postponed for an indefinite time after the novel coronavirus pandemic breached the bio-bubble.
As a result, the IPL 2021 is suspended for the time being. Meanwhile, the fans are eagerly waiting to witness the top spectacle between India and New Zealand.
The two cricketing giants will play the inaugural edition of the ICC World Test Championship final. The peak clash is scheduled to be held in Southampton, England on June 18.
After that, India will lock horns with England to play the five-match Test series in August. On the other hand, India will also be playing a limited-overs series against Sri Lanka.
Since many senior Indian players will be in England, they can’t feature in the upcoming tour of Sri Lanka. However, the BCCI need not have to worry about picking the best players.
There are already enough contenders available for the forthcoming Sri Lanka tour. The Indian selectors will have to send the second-string Indian side to play against Sri Lanka.

Ahead of the start of England’s Test series, the Barmy Army Twitter handle couldn’t stop trolling Team India. The administrator of the Twitter account took a swipe at Team India.
Yes, you read it right. A group of England cricket fans uploaded a video that irked the Indian fans. The video features James Anderson making a mess of Shubman Gill and Ajinkya Rahane’s stumps during their recent tour of India.
The supporters went on to suggest that he could be even more lethal in home conditions. “To all the India fans in our mentions saying Jimmy Clouderson,” they captioned the video.
