The BCCI is all set to host the much-awaited 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) from September 19 to November 8 this year in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Under this schedule, 60 matches will now be played in the 51-day window with around 12 double-headers which means two matches each on both Saturdays and Sundays.

The IPL chairman Brijesh Patel had confirmed the dates and had also said that the Governing Council meeting will happen within a week to discuss the final schedule of the cash-rich league. Ever since the IPL 2020 dates have been announced, fans of former India skipper MS Dhoni are excited to see the return of their ‘Thala’ on the cricket field.

MS Dhoni’s comeback on the field

Dhoni has not played international cricket since World Cup 2019 where the Kiwis outshined the Asian giants in the semi-finals. There are rumors of his retirement from the game but he hasn’t made any statement regarding his future in Indian cricket. However, he was supposed to be back on the cricket field as IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings skipper this year.

The Ranchi stalwart had practiced in the CSK’s training camp in the month of March and was looking forward to being back on the match field. The tournament was scheduled to start on March 29,2020, with the inaugural match between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. However, BCCI had to suspend the league for an indefinite time owing to the coronavirus outbreak in India.

Now that the T20 league is scheduled to commence in less than two months’ time, fans across the world are eager to see their favorite Thala in the yellow jersey again. Fans have been pouring their love and excitement for Dhoni in the form of tweets and memes.
