Sri Lanka rescue offer for IPL as suspension leaves million-dollar deals in limbo

Sri Lanka’s cricket board on Thursday offered to host the lucrative tournament in the island nation, which says it has been less impacted by the virus.

“We have the venues and the resources to hold the IPL in Sri Lanka,” Sri Lanka Cricket President Shammi Silva told AFP.

Silva — who is set to make a formal offer to his Indian counterpart — hopes the outbreak could be brought under control in Sri Lanka, which is currently under an indefinite curfew to combat the spread of the virus.
