Top-flight cricket in India will not return to India any time soon, according to BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, who says sport should take a backseat 'when there is risk to human life'.
The Bundesliga, the German football league, is likely to be the first top-flight league that sets the tone for the future with discussions being held for the league to resume sometime in May.
But Ganguly said that had no bearing on India.
"The social reality of Germany and India are different, there will be no cricket in India in the near future," Ganguly told Times of India. "There are too many ifs and buts involved. More importantly, I don't believe in sport when there is a risk to human life."
