They were not at all concerned about any possibilities or threats to the league.Chennai Super Kings from the sport’s perspective are only concerned about keeping the morale of their players high. “There is nothing else to do at this stage,” CSK Chief Executive Kasi Viswanath said. “We are in regular touch with players. It is a very, very fluid situation for everything else.  You cannot just move in any direction.”The franchise owner of the three-time IPL champion team is not even considering about the economic impact of a “no league” scenario. “Nothing is precious than human lives. That’s the only thought on everyone’s mid.“We have incurred expenses on training schedule and basic preparations. Air tickets and hotel bookings were done. But that all is nothing worth deliberating, considering the situation the whole world is going through,” says the CSK CEO.“At this stage I will say the IPL is not even on our minds. First it will be for the board (the Board of Control for Cricket in India) to be in a position to think about the league. Our job will start after that.”Kings XI Punjab CEO Satish Menon echoed similar sentiment.  “It will be insane to even talk about business. Right now there is only one thought on everybody’s mind. How can we save people’s lives? Whenever the time is right, BCCI will inform us. But that’s not in sight at least for now. Not even in our mind.”KXIP team co-owner Ness Wadia had also said earlier in context of the franchisees’ conference call with the BCCI that they (the team owners) were not even thinking about the IPL.Also Read: IPL 2020: Franchisees call cancelled as ‘there is nothing to discuss’ Facebook Twitter PSL 2021 Eliminator 1 PES vs KAR LIVE: best way to watch Peshawar Zalmi vs Karachi Kings Live Streaming in your country, India, Follow Live update YourBump15 Actors That Hollywood Banned For LifeYourBump|SponsoredSponsoredPost FunThese Twins Were Named “Most Beautiful In The World,” Wait Until You See Them TodayPost Fun|SponsoredSponsoredDefinitionTime Was Not Kind To These 28 CelebritiesDefinition|SponsoredSponsoredDaily FunnyFemale Athlete Fails You Can’t Look Away FromDaily Funny|SponsoredSponsoredDefinitionMost Embarrassing Mistakes Ever Made In HistoryDefinition|SponsoredSponsoredMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStory|SponsoredSponsored Football COVID-19 threat only thought on IPL franchisees’ mind; not thinking about league in 2020 Euro 2020, Switzerland vs Turkey LIVE: Shaqiri adds another as Switzerland lead 3-1; Follow Live Updates Cricket PSL 2021 Qualifier 1 ISL vs MUL LIVE: best way to watch Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans Live Streaming in your country, India, Follow… Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Cricket While speculation is ripe about the possibility – or no possibility – of an Indian Premier League edition this year, the people with highest stakes in the league are not even thinking about it.
