While Sri Lanka has expressed its desire to host the IPL series in our country, the UAE has also expressed his interest.
India’s IPL T20 series has been postponed to April 15 due to an increase in coronavirus in India. There were also reports that IPL matches could be held in September and overseas. Following the official announcement, the BCCI said that due to the country’s coronavirus infection and the curfew being implemented by the government, the IPL matches for 2020 have been postponed until further notice. The management of the BCCI has made such a decision because the safety of the nation is more important than the cricket match.
The Sri Lanka Cricket Board has announced that the IPL will be held in their home country. In this case, the UAE has requested the BCCI to hold matches. BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal said that the UAE has requested the IPL matches. BCCI officials say they have been looking at identifying bio-secure stadiums at home, but India currently has too many viruses affected red zones and it’s unable to move the IPL to a foreign land. But in the current situation, it is impossible to travel anywhere internationally. The safety and health of cricketers are now important. The world is stagnant, so we can make any decision now.
Since the general elections in India have already taken place in 2014, 20 matches of the IPL series have been held in the UAE.
