The 2020 edition of the IPL is all set to take place in the United Arab Emirates. The ICC recently postponed the T20 World Cup, paving way for a clear window for the cash-rich league to take place between September 26-November 07.
The IPL Governing Council will be meeting within the next ten days to finalize all the details of the tournament. With the IPL taking place in the UAE, we thought why not zero in on the franchises who might actually benefit from the change in venue.
Here’s a look at IPL teams that could benefit from the change in venue from India to the UAE:
Delhi Capitals may actually benefit from moving from playing on sluggish surfaces of the Arun Jaitley Stadium to batting on the truer surfaces of the Emirates.
The Ricky Ponting-coaches outfit boasts of spin bashers like Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, and Shimron Hetmyer who like the ball coming onto the bat, which they will most likely get in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Also, the Capitals boast of quality spinners in Ravichandran Ashwin, Amit Mishra Sandeep Lamichhane, Axar Patel which could prove to be a handful on big grounds of the UAE. Keemo Paul, with his cutters, could also prove to be more than a handful.
