IPL continued as misplaced attempt to convey normalcy, but world knows the situation: Omar

Srinagar: Reacting to reports that Indian Premier League (IPL) has been suspended for this season, former chief minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said that the only reason the cricket league continued was the misplaced attempt to convey normalcy except that the whole world knows the situation in India is anything but normal.
Abdullah, who is the vice-president of National Conference (NC), said this (suspension of IPL) should have been done weeks ago but better late than never.
He was reacting to reports that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has indefinitely postponed the IPL 2021 after several players and support staff tested positive for COVID-19.
“Finally. This should have been done weeks ago but better late than never. The only reason the IPL continued was the misplaced attempt to convey normalcy except that the whole world knows the situation in India is anything but normal,” Mr Abdullah wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.
