India fast bowler Mohammed Shami on Thursday said that he does not see the Indian Premier League taking place this year. The 12th edition of the tournament was scheduled to begin on March 29th, but it was postponed indefinitely due to the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic. Shami, who was bought by Kings XI Punjab for a hefty price tag of Rs 4.8 crore, was retained by Kings XI Punjab this year, and was set to headline the franchise’ pace attack.
On being asked about the possibility of playing IPL this year in an interview to Sports Tak, Shami said: I was speaking to Irfan as well on the possibilities of Indian Premier League. I don’t think there is a time for IPL this year. Our T20I World Cup may also gets pushed. Everything has come to a stop. We have to reschedule everything. We have to see where to place everything, accordingly. Hence, I don’t feel the IPL will be possible, he said.
