Game Time: Why did the BCCI conduct the IPL in India?

In hindsight, perhaps it was inevitable that the IPL bubble would burst considering it was being conducted in the middle of a raging pandemic. The fact that it chose to do so in cities like Delhi and Ahmedabad did not help. But what do we know about how the players first got infected by COVID-19? How did they manage to get back to their home countries? And why did the BCCI conduct the IPL in India?

In this episode, Mihir Vasavda is joined by his Indian Express’ colleagues Nihal Koshie and Shamik Chakrabarty to answer these questions.
