The UAE Cricket Committee has confirmed its intention to host the Indian Premier League this year.
The fate of IPL 2020 is currently undecided and fate is currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This may depend on the ICC T20 World Cup 2020, which is currently scheduled to be held in Australia from October to November.
The ICC will make a decision on the T20 World Cup on June 10, which may also affect the chances of this year’s IPL.
It has been reported that BCCI is considering holding competitions abroad due to the increase in coronavirus cases in India.
ECB (Emirate Cricket Board) Secretary-General Mubashshir Usmani told Gulf News that they have contacted BCCI to show interest in hosting the event.
“In the past, we have proved to be a Chinese stand for holding various bilateral and multinational cricket events. We have advanced venues and facilities that make the UAE an ideal place to accommodate all kinds of cricket,” he said.
As a result of the parliamentary elections held in India at the time, the UAE hosted the opening ceremony of the 2014 IPL.
Usmani said the board also expressed its intention to host the county race in England.
“We have come forward and provided venues for the United Kingdom and India. In the past, the UAE Cricket Bureau has successfully hosted IPL matches in the UAE. Previously, we have also hosted matches involving the England team many times. If we propose With any board of directors, then we will be very happy to facilitate the competition for them.” He said.
According to the approval of the British government, England will conduct three test matches against West India next month to resume cricket.
