The Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket competition will survive despite the 2021 competition being postponed, according to one of the world’s leading cricket commentators.

Former champion Australian player turned broadcaster Adam Gilchrist said the competition had been paused because of the COVID-19 crisis in India but said the cricket-loving country would make sure the competition returned.

“The IPL will play a huge role in rebuilding, I guess, the emotion of that nation,” Gilchrist said.

He broadcast his national SEN radio show ‘Gilly and Goss’ live from the UOWTV – RadioU studios at the University of Wollongong this morning.
