The postponement of the T20 World Cup until 2021 because of the COVID-19 has opened the way for the suspended IPL 2020 to go ahead. The 13th IPL was supposed to start on March 29 but was postponed again and again due to coronavirus. The Chairman of the Indian Premier League ( IPL) has announced that the IPL 2020 will be moved to the UAE once it is approved by the Indian government.
He has announced the tournament will start in September but the IPL council will give the agreed dates.
“So we are aiming for the case to take place qurin September-October and a little bit of November.”
IPL 2020 is all set to move to UAE
The Indian Premier League ( IPL) franchises have started making plans to travel for UAE for IPL, as reported by the unofficial sources.
The chartered planes will be considered rather than flying through standard aircraft. The franchises are making arrangements for hotels for their respective clubs.
Before entering UAE, the teams will spend their quality time in bio-secure environments and, after clearing the necessary COVID-19 rounds, will leave for the Arab country to play their cash-rich game.
The tournament is expected to be held by 26 September and will last until 7 November, according to unofficial sources.
Sri Lanka is unlikely to get the chance to host the cash-rich T20 league as chances prefer UAE.
Back in 2014, when India was under the Lok Sabha elections, the UAE already hosted 20 Indian IPL matches. UAE is also considered to have a larger number of wickets, as they have already hosted multi-team matches at their venues.
