BCCI to pray for Govt permission to host IPL in UAE

New Delhi: Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is all set to solicit permission from the Government of India to stage the Indian Premier League (IPL), 2020 in the United Arab Emirates. This was disclosed by the chief of the League Brijesh Patel on Tuesday.

In the wake of the postponement of the Twenty20 World Cup 2020 slated to be held in Australia, the BCCI availed the opportunity of endeavouring to stage the IPL in another country on account of the COVID pandemic in India.

Meanwhile, IPL chairman told the media, “We are yet to finalize when it will begin, maybe sometime in September.”

“They (Emirates Cricket Board) made an offer to host it but we require government permission to stage it in UAE,” he said, adding, “We’ll discuss the issue in the next governing council meeting in 7-10 days.”

It is estimated that the postponement of the cash-rich IPL in March has caused a revenue loss of €467.73 million to the Board. Earlier in 2009, the IPL was held in South Africa.
