BCCI gets nod from Abu Dhabi government
A few days back, news came out that the BCCi officials have received Abu Dhabi’s nod for the IPL 2020. The Abu Dhabi government gave relaxation in the 14-day quarantine period for the travelling teams. This meant that the schedule for IPL 13 could be announced anytime soon.
“We have obtained all necessary permissions for the IPL matches in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. The teams can travel, and they need not be quarantined. Of course, those coming from outside may have to undergo quarantine but those who are already there need not worry over the travel.”
Current status of IPL 2020
All the teams are currently in the emirates of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, staying at their respective hotels and resorts. The teams have finished their isolation period and have also started with the training.
The 53-day IPL 2020 will witness 10-afternoon matches starting at 3:30 PM IST while the evening matches will commence at 7:30 PM IST.
