Bengaluru, Sept. 4: The anticipation came to an end on Sunday, as the BCCI finally announced the schedule for the upcoming edition of the Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL).
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 13th edition of the IPL will be held in the UAE from September 19.
The season, which was originally scheduled to start in March, will see a blockbuster match between defending champions Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings set the ball rolling for the T20 extravaganza.
The IPL will be held across three venues in the UAE, i.e. Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore, led by India captain Virat Kohli, are yet to lay hands on the prestigious trophy. RCB will begin their campaign in Dubai, when they take on Sunrisers Hyderabad. The Bangalore team will play three afternoon matches during this season’s tournament.
While they face SRH in their opener, they will end their group stage against Delhi Capitals in an evening match in Abu Dhabi.
In this edition there will be 10 double headers with the first match starting at 3:30pm IST and the evening match starting at 7:30pm IST.
