IPL 2020 had to be shifted to UAE due rising fear of COVID-19 pandemic in India. However, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly is hopeful that a vaccine will be out soon allowing them to host the next edition in India.

This year the fans had to wait for while to watch the IPL. The coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent lockdown had indefinitely postponed this year’s IPL.

With new surge of positive cases in India, the tournament was on the verge of cancellation. Finally, BCCI identified the UAE an a viable option to host this year’s IPL.

This year’s edition has been massive success and has achieved a lot of popularity. However, fans are wondering when the T20 extravaganza would return to India. At present, the possibility of watching cricket matches in stadiums is rather slim.

Sourav Ganguly says, “Hopefully the vaccine will be out by that time and we can host it,”
