“Spectators are important, but if the situation arises, I don’t mind playing without them. Yes, as a player I won’t get the vibe, but this will ensure that every fan will get to watch IPL on television,” Harbhajan, who performs for Chennai Super Kings, advised Star Sports’ Cricket Connected.
“We will have to be cautious about everything and should prioritise players’ safety by ensuring that the match venues, team hotels, flights are properly sanitised. A lot of lives are on the line so we should organise the IPL when everything is fine,” he added.
The BCCI has suspended the IPL until April 15.
Harbhajan mentioned he’s holding himself match for the league as and when it occurs.
“I hope that the IPL happens soon, till then I will keep myself fit,” mentioned the 39-year-old veteran of 103 Tests.
