This year IPL is going to start from 31 March. Before this, all the teams have started preparations. Even before the start of the IPL, BCCI announced a big change. Some guidelines have been set for the franchises, which the players of all the teams will also have to follow. In the first match of IPL, there will be a clash between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans.
Even before the start of IPL, BCCI has set guidelines for the security reasons of the tournament. Keeping in mind the coronavirus, BCCI has taken this big step. This week all the franchises of IPL will have to follow the Covid Guidelines. Although it is not as strict as before, if a player or team member is found to be Covid positive, then he will have to undergo an isolation period of at least 1 week. Meanwhile, he will not take part in any match or practice session of any side.
