IPL 2020 will begin with a contest between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings on September 19.
The tournament will see 56 league-matches over the course of one-and-a-half months.
The 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is finally set to begin with a humdinger of a clash between the defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, on Saturday (September 19).
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) delayed the announcement of the complete schedule by a considerable amount of time, but all’s well that ends well.
IPL 2020 will take place at the three venues – Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah – and all eight franchises have almost given the finishing touch to their preparations for the tournament. This year, many as ten double-headers will be played from 3:30 pm (IST) onwards, while the evening matches will begin from 7:30 pm instead of the usual 8:00 pm.
Despite several withdrawals (Chris Woakes, Harry Gurney, Suresh Raina, Jason Roy, Lasith Malinga, Harbhajan Singh and Kane Richardson), India’s most prestigious T20 franchise league is guaranteed to put a smile on the faces of fans in these testing times.
The BCCI has also confirmed the list of broadcasters who will telecast the epic tournament for fans across the globe.
