All teams, managerial personnel of other participants will be reached before August 27 for IPL to start seamlessly and CRICKETERS to have enough time to adapt the circumstances well apart from that in the quarantine cells and getting tested COVID 19.

This year Indians will miss live experiencing IPL in their very own country as COVID-19 is increasing enormously daily. The CRICKET MATCH will be played over 53 days in 3 UAE locations: Dubai, Sharjah & Abu Dubai. There'll be 10 evening tournaments this season and the remaining will be at 7:30 p.m. IST.

Women's T20 Challenge to be held in November

The WOMEN'S T20 CHALLENGE will be held together with the IPL this year, where 3 teams to play 4 CRICKET MATCHES in the UAE during the first week of November, clashing with the women 's big bash league in Australia.

The new normal CRICKET TOURNAMENT is going to be hard & distinct.

The practise sessions will be quite different with no handshakes nothing. The team protocol says that CRICKETERS anyhow should keep "2 m of social distance at all times and all places" while training.

To ensure this, coaches were instructed to scatter the training schedule to reduce the number of players on the net at a given time. Play-field equipment will be delivered to CRICKETERS and support staff only by the ground crew, who will be wearing "sufficient safety equipment such as masks and gloves." Each team will be allotted different accommodations to mitigate getting in touch with each other.

The max limit of 25 players permitted for the franchises, with the minimum number set at 18. However, the teams have been informed this season to mention no more than 24 CRICKETERS limiting FOREIGN CRICKETERS to 8 in IPL.

This implies, teams that have 25 players on their line-up like RAJASTHAN ROYALS – will have to make a big call when choosing even before they get on the plane to Gulf. But if a CRICKETER gets infected, a team has the option to replace him.
