The IPL 2020 schedule has finally been confirmed and the tournament will now be played from September 19 to November 10 in the United Arab Emirates. The chairman of the IPL Governing Council, Brijesh Patel, confirmed the news and stated that the final might be played on the 8th or 10th of November and the definitive decision could be expected pretty soon.
Earlier this week, the sources had confirmed that the IPL is set to take place in the UAE and the final decision came after the ICC decided to postpone ICC World T20 2020 that was scheduled in October-November this year. The tournament was postponed amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and, as a result, the window opened up to stage the Indian Premier League 2020. The Final of the event could be scheduled on 8th or 10th of November to allow Indian cricketers to get enough time for quarantine ahead of their Test Series in Australia that will be starting on 3rd of December.
