“The BCCI does not want to compromise on the safety of the players, support staff and the other participants involved in organising the IPL. This decision was taken keeping the safety, health and well-being of all the stakeholders in mind,” BCCI’s official statement read.
As soon as the news broke, fans took to Twitter and shared their reactions.

IPL suspended for a week.
Am surprised that the announcement wasn’t “IPL is now taking a CEAT Tyres time-out. So, TATA for a week.”
