After a long-awaited period, IPL 2020 is finally starting on 19th September in the United Arab Emirates. The cricket festival was on and off for a long time due to the ongoing pandemic. And it is kicking off in style with a blockbuster between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. But this is just one of the many thrilling and dramatic matches in this season. So, to prepare your calendar, we bring you the IPL 2020 schedule.
Season Opener between CSK and MI
Before, we talk about the schedule of IPL 2020. Let’s look at the opening match for a moment. CSK and MI are the two most successful teams in IPL history. They have met regularly in finals and knockout matches, creating hard stopping, brilliant moments in those matches. One of those moments was a season opener between the two teams in 2018 when MI had the match won before bravo from nowhere changed the entire match. It would be foolish of anyone to not expect something similar in this match.
IPL 2020 match list
IPL 2020 is different from previous seasons, as, for starters, it is taking place in the UAE entirely. Plus, the teams believed IPL 2020 would be hosted in India during the auction, so they picked their teams accordingly. However, the game has turned on its head as teams didn’t prepare for the slow tracks in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Also, the matches are tightly scheduled to add another variable of thrill in the tournament. So, expect drama and twist from team selection, tactics, batting and bowling combination in each match. To make you cherish every moment from the tournament, here is the link to the IPL 2020 schedule – IPL Tournament 2020
Preview about IPL 2020
MI is the defending champions, and they are obvious favorites, but this is an odd year, and IPL is in Dubai. These two things go against them, and the tournament opens up for other IPL 2020 teams. CSK are always in the top four with Dhoni as their captain. But the team to watch out would be the young DC with their experienced coaching team. But SRH and KKR can always turn the screw with their spinners on this slow track and win games in an over. The same goes for KXIP and RR, who have a stable core this season around or, maybe it is RCB year after all these years of waiting. 2020 maybe even more unpredictable, and we know that anything can happen in an IPL Season.
There has been very little cricket worldwide, so every player would be itching to go to the field and play their heart out. This would guarantee extraordinary performances from Match 1. So, it would be a smart move to sit at home and watch the entire tournament. You can catch up with IPL 2020 schedule with the link provided above.
