After a considerable delay, the much-awaited thirteenth edition of the Indian Premier League is finally set to commence from September 19th. Days before the start of the cash-rich league, the BCCI finally rolled out the IPL 2020 schedule for all eager fans who are waiting for the T20 extravaganza to begin.

Twitter erupted after all fixtures of this year’s IPL were revealed. Defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) facing the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the opening game in Abu Dhabi, with the final being locked on November 10th. All the fixtures are slated to be played in Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi in three different legs. Amid COVID-19 pandemic, the BCCI had no option but to shift the league to a different country altogether.

Many fans and players expressed their excitement as IPL 2020 is now less than a couple of weeks away. Congratulatory wishes also poured in for the England side after they defeated Australia by 6 wickets in the second T20I and clinch the series.

Meanwhile, many members of the cricket fraternity also reacted to the current COVID-19 situation across the country. India has witnessed a surge in coronavirus positive cases in the past couple of days and has registered over 4 million cases so far. Considering the COVID-19 situation across the country, the decision to shift IPL 2020 to the UAE could prove a wise one.
