After reports of SRH’s Wriddhiman Saha testing positive became public, it is understood that the entire Sunrisers Hyderabad franchise would have to go into quarantine.
SRH were scheduled to play Mumbai Indians in Delhi on Tuesday. But With Saha testing positive there was no way this match could have gone ahead anyway.
Speaking to ANI, BCCI vice president Rajeev Shukla said the tournament has been suspended for this season.
“You can host it after three months, four months, six months, but right now it needs to be stopped.” the chairman said.

I guess it became inevitable in the last couple of days…..Look forward to calling the action in happier times. The #IPL is a great event and I hope it returns stronger when the world is what we knew it to be
