Dive In

In such a tragic time, we find it incongruous that the festival of cricket is on in India, with layers of bio bubbles creating protection. This is commercialism gone crass. The problem is not with the game but its timing. Cricket, too, must accept that we are passing through an unprecedented crisis. In the circumstances, The Sunday Standard and The Morning Standard will suspend IPL coverage in the newspaper with immediate effect till a semblance of normalcy is restored.

That’s the New Indian Express announcing its decision to suspend IPL coverage until the nation recovers some semblance of normalcy. There is a growing controversy as to whether the IPL itself should be suspended in an acknowledgement of these extraordinary times. What is not up for debate: The fact that neither the league nor the cricketers have acknowledged the tragedy unfolding amid us.
