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.


“Indian players of the Hyderabad-based franchise landed in the city on Sunday. “In the auction, it was a very intentional effort to have the youngsters. While they are youngsters, they are all the most prolific performers in domestic cricket. “When you see the composition of our team, we had a lot of experienced players from both overseas and India. “But when we look at the domestic players, we (were) required to strengthen our batting, especially our middle-order batting. So we went with the performer in the last couple of seasons.” “Trevor is one of the most successful coaches in world cricket; England won the World Cup for the first time under his coaching,” Laxman said. “I have always admired him and all the interactions I have had with him have been excellent - I learnt something with every interaction. He is cool and calm and also has the temperament of handling the best of teams and the best of players.” “Brad Haddin is a hardcore competitor. He will definitely give 100 per cent or probably more than 100 per cent as the assistant coach.”

The Indian Cricket Control Board (BCCI) facing all kinds of troubles before the Indian Premier League 2020. Retail group Future Group has withdrawn from BCCI's list of central sponsors for IPL due to the prevailing hostile economic climate in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. “Yes, Future Group has pulled out of the IPL Sponsorship deal. We are looking for a replacement”, confirmed the BCCI source currently in Dubai. Future Group was associated with IPL for the last 5 years. The IPL official website has also removed the logo of Future Group from the official sponsors list. Future Group was paying 28Cr for the Central Sponsorship of IPL every year. They were talks during the IPL 2019 as well that the Future Group is looking to exit the league but they continued with the sponsorship during IPL 2019.


“Future Group has been in bad shape since the start of Covid-19. It was bound to happen that they wouldn’t have been able to spend Rs 40 crore to be a part of BCCI’s central sponsorship pool. Hence, the pull-out is not a surprise,” the source said.
“Right now, the Future Group is going through a restructuring phase and there are talks with multi-national conglomerates about its potential takeover in the next few weeks. So sponsoring sporting events at the moment wasn’t top priority for Future Group,” he added. Now IPL 2020 4 central sponsors

“We know it’s not an ideal situation but you can’t blame BCCI for this. There is a financial crisis. If franchises have earned and made gains during good times, they understand and stand by BCCI during troubled times,” a senior official of a franchise said.
