IPL 2021: Hosting tournament in India was a right call, situation deteriorated quickly, says PBKS co-owner Ness Wadia
The Indian Premier League was on Tuesday suspended indefinitely after multiple COVID-19 cases were reported in its bio-bubble, ending a month-long relatively smooth run for cricket's most glamorous event in the middle of a raging pandemic.
