In the first leg of the competition, for which the number of matches isn’t quite known, the tournament will be played to empty stadiums. The fear of the coronavirus pandemic has meant the IPL has opted to play it safe and only later, based on the situation, will they decide on whether or not to allow fans inside.
As a result, IPL tickets for this IPL won’t be sold till later in the season, if at all, and fans will need to make do with watching the tournament live on TV or streamed on their devices.
Some of the measures which the IPL franchises will need to take include restricting the squads to 24 players a-side, and following Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) like quarantining players in hotels and testing them for Covid-19 well in advance. A quarantine period of a week could be in the offing once the cricketers enter into the biosecure bubble in the UAE but more information is still awaited on this.
Each season has lived up to its billing with some excellent performances from some of the sides so far. Unlike previous years, this year’s tickets won’t be available on BookMyShow, Insider.in, TicketGenie, EventsNow and Paytm.
Mumbai Indians kick-start the IPL as the defending champions after having won the previous season by beating Chennai Super Kings in a thriller of a final. The Mumbai Indians will kick-start the tournament as the defending champions to face last year’s runner-ups Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium in the first match. MI defeated CSK in the final of the previous IPL, clinching their fourth title in the process. The league will span over 53 days this year.
Also making it to the playoffs apart from Mumbai and Chennai last year were the Delhi Capitals and the Sunrisers Hyderabad, who finished third and fourth. In fact, so evenly fought was the competition between the top three sides, Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi that they all finished on 18 points apiece. Hyderabad managed to scrape through with 12 points on a better NRR than Kolkata and Punjab.
In the playoffs, Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings to make it to the final before Delhi defeated Hyderabad to knock them out and set up a meeting with the Chennai Super Kings for a place in the final. Chennai rolled over Delhi in that second qualifier to take on Mumbai for the fourth time in the tournament.
The IPL 2019 final then saw the Mumbai Indians scrape through to 149/8 from their 20 overs thanks to Kieron Pollard’s 41 but a struggling Chennai failed to make it through, losing by 1 run thanks to Jasprit Bumrah’s 2/14 from four overs and despite Shane Watson’s 80 off 59.
It will be interesting to see how things go in the 2020 version of the tournament, with the teams getting smarter with their selections and strategies.
The IPL auction took place in December 2018, and now we know who will be representing each team as they look to be crowned IPL champions. As normal, during the auction, we saw some of the biggest names in world cricket bought by IPL franchises, and it will be great to see those players go head to head. Some will be returning to their old clubs, while others are starting new adventures with new franchises and it will be interesting to see how these players get on with new surroundings.
Punjab, for instance, will hope new coach Mike Hesson can guide them to a season to remember while Bangalore, who also haven’t won a title need Virat Kohli and Gary Kirsten to work together to get them off to a decent campaign. IPL ticket booking 2020 links will be placed below.
