The Indian Premier League council will meet on the 2nd of August, to finalize the schedule and do some other arrangements, which will be held in UAE. Earlier, the tournament was forced out of India Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The meeting is expected to be attended by top BCCI members, including President Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah. Most likely this edition of IPL will have fewer double-headers, which will be beneficial for broadcasters.
