The fifth edition of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2020 has been postponed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The tournament was scheduled to begin on June 10, 2020.

“The revised schedule will be released in due course,” the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) issued a statement on Monday.

The upcoming edition was set to be an eight-team tournament with the final scheduled to take place on July 12. The TNPL has a window until September 15, and it remains to be seen whether the competition is hosted behind closed doors or not.

Earlier, the decision over postponing the league depended on the lockdown period. “We still don’t know if there will be a partial lockdown or not in May. We have to wait and watch. Maybe the tournament will be postponed by two-three weeks depending on the lockdown,” said a source to The New Indian Express.
