New Delhi: The COVID-19 pandemic has forced India’s biggest sports body BCCI to virtually shut down its headquarter in Mumbai from Tuesday with its employees being advised to work from home.
It has been learned that the employees have been asked to “work from home” with all the cricketing operations already being suspended until further notice.
“The BCCI employees were today notified that the headquarters at the Wankhede Stadium will be as good as closed in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic. All the staffers have been advised to work from home,” a top source from the Board told PTI on the condition of anonymity.
“However, if someone still wants to come, they can,” he added.
The BCCI last Friday postponed the IPL-13 from March 29 to April 15 along with all other domestic tournaments, including the Irani Cup and the Women’s Challenger Trophy.
It has been learnt that the National Cricket Academy (NCA) has also stopped its various zonal camps even though rehabilitation programme at the Bengaluru centre was still on as on Monday.
