Dean Jones Held A Q&A Session On Twitter:
The sports world has been facing the toughest stage, with premier tournaments like Premier League, Olympics, Indian Premier League (IPL) and La Liga, all are getting postponed because of COVID19 pandemic. In this meantime, cricketers have enough time and they interact with their fans through social media.
Famous commentator and former Australian cricketer Dean Jones also joined the Question-Answer sessions on Wednesday (25-03-2020) where he gave answers a couple of questions asked by the fans.
In one of the questions, one fan asked him that, in between Big Bash League and Indian Premier League, which one is more difficult to win. The Twitter user asked “ BIG BASH or IPL, which one is tougher T20 match to win?”
And Dean Jones replied that the Big Bash League (BBL) is not present in the same hemisphere as compared to IPL (Indian Premier League), PSL (Pakistan Super League) or Caribbean Premier League or Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League or even Global Canada T20.

IPL 2020 may be called off because of the lockdown in the whole country
After the government of India declared a nationwide lockdown for three weeks, it has a high probability of canceling the 13th season of the Indian Premier League.
Ness Wadia, co-owner of Kings XI Punjab has asked the BCCI to consider canceling the Indian Premier League because according to him, now all we have to act with much greater responsibility. Now thinking about IPL is just inhumane.
Ness Wadia was quoted “The Board of Cricket Council of India ( BCCI) should consider delaying the IPL. We have to act with much greater responsibility. Right now, thinking about IPL is inhumane. In case the condition improves by the month of May and I hope it does the same, which player is going to come and play? Will the overseas players be even permitted to enter the country?”
