“It (vaccination) has been on top of our mind, especially in a scenario like the one we have this year where the IPL is in caravan model and we have to travel from one city to another. We made a request to the BCCI, I am pretty sure that the BCCI would have also put that request to the government, which I am not aware of, and the government also I am sure has a priority which is set in like you yourself mentioned that the Olympic athletes are the top priority and certainly I feel the government will recognise that an event of this nature requires that protection,” Bisht said.

“And they will certainly prioritise not only the players, the associated staff and the broadcasting team and everyone who is in the management to get vaccinated so that we have an event-free IPL,” he explained.This is the second time the multi-million dollar league is taking place amidst a pandemic Last time when it happened in September, it happed in UAE and matched being played across just three venues.

“Firstly, we got to be grateful to BCCI to be able to put together this event even in this challenging scenario. The scenario in itself is evolving by the day and new challenges come up for the event organisers and I am sure BCCI has the wherewithal to deal with them. The guidelines will get modified with an eye on the developing scenario and I am sure for an organisation like BCCI, they will always have an alternate plan put together if the situation presents itself,” he said.
