Dream11 IPL 2020 | Schedule | Teams | Live Streaming

The biggest T20 league in the world, Dream 11 IPL, will start from the 19th of September. We can see all kinds of players here, like from one of the greatest to the players who are just starting their careers and getting to share dressing rooms. This year the sponsor of the IPL will be the fantasy sports app Dream11 who had won the bid for 222 crores.

With the Indian team’s success in the T20 World Cup 2007, the T20 format became very popular in India, which led to IPL, and since 2008 it has been celebrated like a festival every summer. Every season has been no less of a thriller, and this year it would be the 13th edition of IPL.

Due to the Corona Virus pandemic and the lockdown, it almost seemed impossible that IPL was likely to happen. But the IPL committee came up with a solution of playing the IPL in UAE as they did in 2014 amidst elections. All the teams will be staying in a Bio-Secure Bubble, and there are fines if anyone breaches the bubble.

What’s new this season?

  • An entire season of IPL would be played outside of India, and this is the 2nd time it is happening as it had happed in the second season where India played in South Africa due to India’s elections.
  • The team franchises are entirely responsible for creating their bio-secure bubbles and also responsible for a player’s safety.
  • The matches will be played in closed doors that means there will be no audience.
  • The fantasy sports app Dream11 is going to be the sponsor for this season.

Venues:

All the matches will be played in UAE following the restriction laid by the BCCI due to the COVID-19 situation.

The venues have been decided as:

  1. Abu Dhabi
  2. Sharjah
  3. Dubai

Schedule:

The schedule of this year’s IPL matches is not yet released, and there has been a lot of delays. BCCI has not specified the reason for these delays.
