With Cricket Australia not hosting the World T20 during this year’s October-November window, the IPL 2020 is all set to happen either in Mumbai or the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Top sources told JIMMY SHARMA that BCCI’s top choice is Mumbai, because of multiple stadia facilities and also to avoid to-and-fro travelling of the teams. However, if the financial capital of the country isn’t able to control the coronavirus pandemic by September, UAE is certain to host the event.
It means that the other options like Sri Lanka and New Zealand – the countries with fewer coronavirus cases – haven’t found favour in the BCCI to host the richest T20 league of the world.
Jimmy sharma was the first to report last month that Mumbai had emerged as the top choice for BCCI to stage the event because of having three stadia in the city – Wankhede, Cricket Club of India (Brabourne) and DY Patil. The BCCI had also explored Bengaluru and Mohali as possible venues.
However, if the pandemic is not controlled in the country by September, UAE would certainly host the event. Sources also said that the Indian government is also open to the idea of shifting the IPL if Mumbai doesn’t remain a viable option.
