The cream of the world cricket is all set to descend in UAE to participate in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020). The IPL is the world’s biggest and most lucrative cricket event as along with 125 Indians, 62 top foreign cricketers are contracted to participate in the IPL 2020 for 8 IPL teams.
