The world has been hit by the outbreak of coronavirus and the sporting events too have been equally affected. Either the events have been canceled or postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) that was postponed for indefinite time was earlier scheduled to begin in March-end.
But the BCCI President Sourav Ganguly had earlier said that the cricketing action in the country will not take place for sometime which means IPL 2020 is also under dark clouds.
Well, this has come as an opportunity for some countries to have some gains. Sri Lanka had proposed to host the IPL 2020 in their country and now UAE is another nation who is willing to do the same. “If they play it in Sri Lanka, it’s easy for Indian audiences to watch the games on TV,” President of SLC, Shammi Silva said.
“There would be a few teams – us in particular at RCB, we’d be very happy for it to be played abroad, because a number of our overseas players are Australian and South African, who really would enjoy these conditions in Australia,” Katich told SEN Radio.
UAE had earlier hosted 20 matches of the cash-rich league back in 2014.
But the BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal confirmed that there is no planning to hold the IPL for now.
