The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 is less than a week away. After the tournament was postponed, after many hindrances and altercations, the 13th edition of the IPL will begin on September 19 in UAE.
IPL has been an iconic tournament over the course of the last 12 years. Despite tough circumstances, this year won’t be any different as IPL will be broadcasted over 120 countries!
The tournament gives opportunities to young, inexperienced, yet talented cricketers to showcase their skills against some of the world’s greatest. They get to learn from the best of the best and perform under crunch situations in packed stadiums. Therefore, despite India already having a robust domestic circuit like Ranji Trophy, Vijay Hazare Trophy, Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, etc, IPL acts a factory churning out world-class talent for the Indian team.
The buzz is not only limited to India. Many cricketers like Shaun Marsh, David Miller, Chris Morris, Kieron Pollard, etc, have kick-started their international careers from IPL itself. Therefore, both fans and selectors internationally will have their eyes on the tournament. Here is the list of broadcasters who will stream IPL across India and other countries.
