The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League is all set to begin in the month of September. Due to the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic, this edition of the tournament was delayed and will be conducted in the United Arab Emirates. The teams have already begun their journey to the Middle East nation for the tournament.
The players, as well as the support staff of all the teams, are supposed to remain in bio-secure bubbles throughout the duration of the league. Matches will be played in three venues namely Dubai, Sharjah and the capital Abu Dhabi. Consequently, the teams will be staying in hotels situated in these cities only.
Every team is currently living in a separate hotel where the players and other staff members are undergoing 7-day quarantine before they gear up to prepare for the tourney. During their quarantine, players will be tested on 1st, 3rd and 6th day. Apart from these players, squad members from England and Australia are supposed to arrive on September 17th and are expected to participate in the tournament right away.
In this article, we will have a look at the hotels where each team is staying:
1. Chennai Super Kings- Taj, Dubai
The Yellow Army is staying in The Taj Hotel situated in Dubai. A popular chain of hotels having a presence in India and many other Asian countries, Taj is a brand in the true sense of the term.
Located on Burj Khalifa street in downtown Dubai, it is one of the most luxurious hotels in the whole city. There is a 20-minute travelling distance between the Airport and the hotel which makes it perfect for a frequently commuting sports team.
The building is strategically well-situated giving a beautiful view of the Burj Khalifa. Clubbed with a Jiva Spa and a Fitness Centre, the hotel is perfect for the stay of the three-time champions.
