'How it happened is very difficult to say': Ganguly on Covid cases at IPL 2021



The BCCI President Sourav Ganguly on Thursday said that it remains unclear how a number of players and supporting staff were tested positive for the Covid-19 virus inside the Indian Premier League bio-bubble. The 14th edition of IPL was suspended on Tuesday after several players were tested positive, hinting that there may be a bubble breach.

On being asked about possible reasons behind the positive tests inside the bubble, Ganguly said that it still remains unclear how it happened.

"Was the bubble-breach a case of the bio-security bubble not being foolproof? Or was there somebody who broke the bubble?" Ganguly was asked in an interview by The Indian Express.

"I don't think so. The report we got is that there's no breach of the bubble. How it happened is very difficult to say. How so many people are getting (infected) in the country is also very difficult to say," Ganguly said in response.

The BCCI president also said that the board took the decision to hold IPL 2021 in India across multiple cities, as there were only a few cases in the country at the time.
