Rohit Sharma has been the most successful skipper in the IPL. Sharma has won four league titles and would have been eager to carry on that winning mentality in the 13th edition of the IPL which was due to start on March 29.
However, the coronavirus pandemic has led to the government of India announcing a lock down which has also caused the BCCI to suspend the star-studded tournament indefinitely.

An official of the BCCI also expressed about the importance of the IPL and how it could restore lost revenue and assist the other cricketing boards to an extent.
“See, you cannot have a Test match right now without crowds because that will not generate the revenue you need but the IPL will not only generate revenue for the BCCI, but also for the other boards because they will get a 10 per cent fee from the players’ salaries. It is a must in the current scenario and you cannot ignore that,” one of the executives said
