IPL 2020 : BCCI President & sec Jay Shah will reach Dubai on 8th September

Meanwhile, former Indian captain and president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah are scheduled to arrive on September 8 as the preparations for the IPL reaches its final stages. Other than these two it is expected that BCCI’s treasurer Arun Dhumal will also travel to Dubai for IPL 2020.

Due to restrictions on movement inside the bio-safety bubble during the IPL, the BCCI has decided against inviting state association officials to the UAE for at least the first half of the tournament. Usually, state unit presidents and secretaries are present on the inaugural day, other than the play-offs and final. The BCCI hopes to have them over for the later stages.

In a letter to the state associations, BCCI secretary Jay Shah had earlier written to them, “Restriction on physical presence is the best way to avoid contracting and spreading the deadly virus and after a long-fought battle, this is yet another sacrifice that we are forced to make.”
