CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER Johnny Grave says Cricket West Indies (CWI) has contacted West Indies players taking part in the Indian Premier League (IPL) to enquire about their safety.

This followed yesterday’s unanimous decision by the IPL’s governing council and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to postpone the remainder of the lucrative T20 tournament with immediate effect because of the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in India.
