The VIVO 2020 IPL GC meeting will be called by the BCCI As Possible as the ICC announces the postponement of the 2020 T20 World Cup. The IPL GC Brijesh Patel will decide the exact IPL 2020 schedule and format of this session IPL 2020. The viewpoint of the Hotstar official broadcasters Star India will also be sought. Once it’s complete or done, the IPL 2020 GC Brijesh Patel will inform the franchise and other stakeholders about the VIVO IPL 2020 schedules and format.

Indian Premier League 2020 Format

All the IPL 8 teams participating in the Event will play a dual round-robin stage, i.e. two matches against every other IPL team, one at home and the other away. As a result, all of fifty-six matches will be contested in the league stage. This stage will be conducted IPL from 18 September 2020 and ends on 9 November 2020 as per the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) time table.

Post the league stage, the top 4 teams placed in the IPL 2020 points table will qualify for the Playoffs zone now those the rest of the teams will be knocked out.

The winner of this match will play in the Final against the winner of Qualifier 1.

The VIVO IPL 2020 Final will be hosted by the UAE Emirates because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which will be the third time in Indian Premier League history.

What are the testing mandatory requirements for team players and the support staff?

As per the standard SOPs – the final draft is ready to be shared with the Ipl 2020 franchises besides a mandatory PCR COVID-test within 96 hours preceding a departure, every single team player and support staff member must have to test negative report thrice during the week-long quarantine in UAE to be allowed inside the biosecure bubble.

When do the IPL 2020 eight teams leave for the UAE?

The Indian cricket board is fortunate to get training facilities in UAE available for pre-tournament camps starting August 27. All teams except CSK are expected to remain on August 19 or 20. Only CSK players are informed to be able to leave on August 10, should the requirement arise.

VIVO IPL 2020 within the UAE: How will the tournament diverge this year?

After a 6 month delay, the IPL 2020 will begin next month. But the business wouldn’t be as was common. The IPL T20 tournament was originally scheduled to start on March 29. But the pandemic and consequent lockdown over the word meant the season had to be postponed indefinitely.

On Sunday (August 2), the GC of the league confirmed that this year’s IPL tournament is going to be held in the United Arab Emirates’s capital, Dubai, and Sharjah from September 19 to November 10.

Detailed Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are yet to be made public by the Indian cricket board, but the broad guidelines set for the league and also the internal protocols prepared by some teams provide a glimpse of what the season could appear as if.

How Players will maintain the Hygiene: no touching or sharing equipment, masks at the most times

Several rules in IPL 2020 for players and officials mirror those good within the football leagues across Europe, and in other sports like basketball and Formula One that have restarted after the hiatus forced by the COVID -19 pandemic.

As per the SOP prepared by one team, the players are told to avoid using “handshakes, high-fives, tackling, sparring, etc” as a part of the training routine.

Clearly and strictly cant share their bottle and towel In a list of do’s and don’ts, the team players and supporting staff are asked to use their own personal equipment, The players have also been advised to decorate for training before they leave their hotel rooms, rather than changing at the bottom. just in case they use the shower within the changing room post-practice, they’ll ensure their “soaps, towels and other utilities don’t seem to be shared”.

Wearing a mask is compulsory the least bit of times, except while training.

Social distancing: staggered training schedules, always two apart

The training sessions, too, will look very different. The team’s protocol says that the players should maintain “2 m social distancing in any respect times and everyone places” during practice.

To ensure that happens, coaches are advised to team training timings to minimize the number of players at nets at a given time. The equipment at the sphere of play is going to be handed to players and support staff only by the bottom staff, who will wear “adequate protective equipment like masks and gloves”.

Role of the team’s coach: close watch on the health of all players

The coaches are assigned the critical task of keeping a tab on the players’ health. per the team’s SOP, one in all the key responsibilities of the coach is to ask his players “if they’re feeling ill before each training session and report all cases”.

If a team player shows any symptoms of COVID or reports of sickness, he is sent back to the hotel from the training ground. A special Covid-19 helpline will be reported.

The other backroom staff, just like the physiotherapist, are given precise instructions. The physio, for example, will need to ensure he doesn’t touch the eyes, nose, or mouth of a player while ensuring there isn’t over one player within the room during treatment.

Every team player advised showers for players before each physiotherapy or massage session.

The team management is additionally likely to mark all face masks with a player’s name to avoid interchanging.

What players have to follow At the hotel: open the doors, no touching doorknobs or handles, AC will be on 24-30 degrees

Each team is probably going to remain at a distinct hotel so as to avoid coming up-to-date with others, while also ensuring discretion, given the strict protocols that are set.

The players are told to not socialize with their teammates and other staff before or after training. In common areas, sort of a meeting room, it’s been advised that every one door and windows be kept open at all times.

The thought behind keeping the doors open or close in common areas is to avoid touching doorknobs. Windows should be kept hospitable and provide natural ventilation. If at the least an air-conditioner is employed, it’ll be operated between “24-30 degrees centigrade with humidity levels maintained between 40-70 percent”, in step with a team’s protocol.

Strength of the squad: One player will need to leave behind

A key decision for lots of teams before they depart for the UAE is to make your mind up which player to depart out.

The VIVO IPL 2020 franchises are allowed a maximum of twenty-five players in each team squad, with the minimum number set at 18. But this season, the teams are told to call less than 24 players in their squad.

That means teams like Rajasthan Royals or Kings XI Punjab – who have 25 players on their roster – will have to make an enormous selection call even before they get on the plane to the Gulf. Just in case a player is infected, a team is allowed to switch him.

Spectators on the ground: Stadium Stands will, fortunately, kept empty

While the season will presumably be played without spectators, the Emirates Cricket Board has said it’s exploring the choice of filling the stands by up to 30-50 percent.

The UAE has around 6,000 active cases at the instant, and therefore the ECB secretary Mubashshir Usmani has said they’re hopeful of allowing some fans into the stadium.
