BCCI president Sourav Ganguly hinted that the cricket will remain off action in India until 'there is risk to human life'.

Ganguly told TOI: "The social reality of Germany and India are different, there will be no cricket in India in the near future.

"There are too many ifs and buts involved. More importantly, I don't believe in sport when there is a risk to human life."

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought all of sporting events to standstill, and so have the gentleman's game.

Like Ganguly, former Indian off spinner Harbhajan Singh, who is a part of CSK in IPL, believes the same.

"When IPL teams travel, there's a huge crowd at the airports, hotels, outside the stadium. How are you going to stop them if you are looking to maintain social distancing? There should be no top-flight cricket till there is a vaccine for Covid-19."
