After that, slowly and gradually all the series began as the restrictions were slightly altered for the conducting of series and tours. Consequently, the much-awaited IPL 2020 was also hosted by the BCCI from September to November in UAE. However, the fans had to wait for international cricket. Team India’s fans had been waiting to see the Men in Blue return to play for the country.
