Ganguly said controlling coronavirus is not easy even within a bio-secure environment and said he did not know how the virus entered bio-bubble.
“We have received reports that there is no violation of bubbles. It is very difficult to say how it happened. It is also very difficult to say how so many people (infected) are taking place in the country, Ganguly said.
In an interview with the Indian Express, Ganguly also talked about the possible rift in the bio bubble and said, “I don’t think so.” We have received the report that there is no violation of bubbles. It is very difficult to say how it happened. It is also very difficult to say how so many people (infected) are taking place in the country.
IPL franchises Kolkata Knight Riders, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings have reported positive Covid cases in their camps, forcing BCCI to postpone IPL 2021 indefinitely.
“Professional hands around the world cannot control it (penetrating a virus bubble). Although this is happening in England (the second wave of epidemic), there are such cases in the English Premier League. Manchester City and Arsenal players have been infected with the disease, Ganguly said.
The former India captain said rescheduling the remaining matches of IPL 2021 would not be easy for BCCI as the international calendar was too packed.
“(Premier League) matches have been rescheduled. Because their season is six months long, they can do it. But our season is tight. Since we have to (release) players to their countries, the rescheduling is very difficult,” Ganguly said.
