Speaking of cricket action, IPL 2020 is most likely to place later this year as the ICC T20 World Cup has been postponed officially. However, IPL governing council chairman Brijesh Patel has announced that the tournament will take place in UAE amid COVID-19 crisis. As per the tentative schedule, the marquee tournament will be played from September 26 to November 7.
