The eagerly-awaited Indian Premier League 2020 season will start on September 19 

and the final of the tournament will be played on November 8

, IPL Governing Council chairman Brijesh Patel confirmed on Friday (July 24). The tournament will be held in UAE, pending all government clearances.

Earlier in the week, the BCCI had zeroed in on the United Arab Emirates as the venue for the 13th edition of the tournament after long deliberations of hosting it in India had failed following the worsening of the coronavirus pandemic in the country.

The Emirates Cricket Board, and SLC, had approached the BCCI with the offer of playing host to the IPL, stating that they had the required infrastructure for it. With the ICC postponing the Men's T20 World Cup - originally scheduled to be held from October 18 to November 15 - a window opened up for IPL to be held.

Further details regarding the plan of departure for teams and the full schedule of the tournament will be chalked out at the IPL Governing Council meeting next week

There are three international grounds are available in the UAE -- Dubai International Stadium, Sheikh Zayed Stadium (Abu Dhabi) and the Sharjah ground. It is learnt that the BCCI will be renting the grounds of the ICC Academy for training of the teams.

As per the current health protocol in Dubai, there is no need to be in quarantine if people are carrying a negative COVID-19 test report, but if they are not, they will have to undergo a test.
