The most awaited IPL 2020 is all set to go through in UAE. With the schedule starting from September 19 until November 8, the Emirates Cricket Board is reviewing ideas to fill up 30-50 per cent of the stadiums with spectators. The secretary Mubashshir Usmani said that the UAE government approval is a key for opening up doors for limited spectators.
The chairman of IPL, Brijesh Patel also told PTI that allowing the public to walk-in to the stadiums will completely depend on the UAE government. Besides, the BCCI too is waiting for a decision from the Indian government for the final approval to host the IPL in the UAE.
With the growing numbers of covid-19 in India, the apex board has made a decision to move the venues to UAE. The development took place after the UAE has made it clear with the figures showing a little over 6000 active cases of covid-19.
