What is IPL?
Cricket is one of the most followed and watched sports across the world. Although all the formats of cricket are well-loved, the T20 edition is the one that is the most exciting and thrilling of them all. The Indian Premier League, popularly known by its acronym IPL is one of the most popular T20 tournaments that has its fan base across the world, including Dubai. In fact, IPL Dubai has been held on two occasions now, one in the year 2014 (due to general elections being held in India) and the other in the current year i.e. 2020 (due to the Covid-19 pandemic).
IPL in Dubai 2020
This year, i.e. in 2020, the Dubai International Cricket Stadium hosted 24 matches of IPL in Dubai which is four more than the number of matches held in Abu Dhabi. Dubai boasts of a significant number of Indian residents and hence, cricket in general and the Indian Premier League, in particular, is widely popular in the city.
Since all the matches of IPL in Dubai were held behind closed doors, no spectators were allowed inside the stadium. Hence, people had to resort to watching matches on their television sets or on digital streaming services. This means no thrill of watching the matches with your people in the stadiums packed with fans from all around the world. Also, watching the match at your home can sometimes be a solitary experience and can be a bummer if the event is one of the high profile ones of the year.
