IPL 2020 advisory: No stadium access for media, only post-match press meet mandatory

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced that IPL 2020 will be devoid of any physical media presence due to strict health safety protocols put in place in view of the coronavirus pandemic.

This will be the first edition in which it won’t be required to conduct pre-match press conferences. However, there will be a mandatory virtual media conference after every game.

The scribes currently registered with the BCCI will continue to receive press releases and regular updates before and after every match. These press releases will contain details on procedures to join the virtual post-match press conference and methods to send in questions for the team representatives during match-days.

The BCCI will also provide accredited media with 35 images per match, an increase from earlier years, throughout the tournament.
