The Indian Premier League has been suspended for safety reasons as India battles a massive surge in coronavirus cases, organisers said Tuesday.

"The Indian Premier League Governing Council and Board of Control for Cricket in India in an emergency meeting has unanimously decided to postpone (the) IPL 2021 season, with immediate effect," a statement said.
