Now the Mar 26th match against Qatar is postponed, due to Coronavirus issues. FIFA decision, it seems?

Meanwhile, Stimac is pretty upset at the situation with ISL, with no Indians getting a chance as a striker except Chhetri.

‘Stop wasting money on foreign players’
We will never find replacement for Chhetri while the situation is like this. Where am I going to find a striker? We didn’t open the (attacking) positions for Indian youngsters in Indian Super League (ISL) or I-League. Where are they going to play? If you consider that India with 1.5 billion people have a top tier of 10 clubs, of which 60% are foreigners. Which means there are only 40 players with Indian passports, and out of these, 20 are fullbacks and 10 are defensive midfielders. Now out of this you have to make one Picasso picture!
You go coach! More power to you!

We need to put a restriction that at least one Indian striker has to be on the field for each team. And, if a team games it by naming an Indian as a striker but effectively that person moving the person to midfield or back that team will be heavily fined.
