VVS Laxman is bit wary of the nature of pitches in UAE
The Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) is going to begin in the UAE from 19 September to 10 November. IPL moved out of India due to the health crisis, the 13th edition of the world’s biggest T20 league will be played across the three venues of Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah in the UAE.
“I can assure all the fans of the game that they will really enjoy the competition even though there won’t be any crowd or any spectators on the ground,” Laxman said in a video released by the franchise.
“Don’t ever think that the energy or the quality of cricket will come down.” Instead, the former India batsman seemed a bit wary of the nature of pitches that will be on offer in the UAE.
“Probably the wickets may be on the slower side but we have to just wait and see because we may just be surprised with the efforts put in by the ground staff.
“The outfield will be fantastic but the wickets are something that I hope will be well taken care of by the ground staff.”
The Sunrisers, along with the Delhi Capitals, were the last of the eight IPL teams to reach the UAE.
