Following the postponement of the Men’s T20 World Cup by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Monday, there is a window from September 19 to November 10, a source within the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) told ANI.
This year’s IPL was supposed to happen on March 29, but was indefinitely postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic outburst. Earlier, IPL governing council chairman Brijesh Patel confirmed that the 13th edition of the league will be played in the UAE.
“IPL 2020 which was postponed due to coronavirus will now be held in UAE,” Patel told ANI on Tuesday.
