IPL 2020 should kick off cricket calendar before T20 World Cup: VVS Laxman

Former India batsman and Sunrisers Hyderabad mentor VVS Laxman said Indian Premier League (IPL) can kick off the cricket calendar once normalcy returns after the Covid-19 crisis.

The IPL 2020 will be a perfect curtain raiser for the cricket season and it will set the tone before the T20 World Cup, scheduled for October-November in Australia, according to the batting great.

IPL 2020 has been indefinitely postponed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. The 13th edition of IPL, which was scheduled to get underway from March 29, was initially suspended until April 15. However, the tournament was postponed further after India extended its lockdown to May 3 to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus.
