Speaking of cricket action, lovers of the game must brace themselves as the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is set to get underway on September 19 while the finals will be played on November 10.
All the eight teams, however, will face a different challenge this time around as the tournament will take place in UAE. The pitches over there are favouring the spinners while the boundaries are also on the larger side. Nevertheless, to assess the conditions well, all the sides are aiming to reach the base by the second or third week of August.
