This year, the IPL is being played without the presence of supporters in stadiums due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, organisers have made some arrangements to make viewers feel that IPL 2020 is taking place in normal times. Whenever a wicket goes down or a boundary is hit, cheerleaders appear on a display screen.
Before the commencement of the tournament, an anthem was also released to give a sense to the audiences that things will get back to normal. The anthem titled Ayenge Hum Wapas (We will be back) talks about how stadiums will be once again filled by fans.
The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League is taking place in the UAE at three locations – Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah. It started on September 19 and will conclude on November 10. Till now, 39 matches have been played and the tournament is approaching towards the next stage.
