The 13th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) is likely to be held in March-April-May window. IPL 2020 will see eight teams battling it out. Mumbai Indians are the defending champions and will be looking to clinch yet another title. Meanwhile, as per some reports, the final of IPL 2020 is likely to take place at the Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad. The new stadium is under construction and expected to be ready by March 2020. IPL 2020 Schedule: Indian Premier League 13 Start Date and Full Time Table Searches Increase After Player Auction.

The new Sardar Patel stadium will have a seating capacity of 1,10,000 and will be bigger than Australia’s Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). The stadium is being built at the cost of Rs 700 crore. As earlier reported, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is looking to inaugurate the stadium in March, and it will host an exhibition match between Asia XI and World XI. IPL 2020 Scheduled to Begin Early?

Sports anchor Vikrant Gupta during his show Sports Tak, while replying to a fan’s query said, “let me tell you one thing, the final of the upcoming IPL season will be played in Ahmedabad. Although we do not know the official dates for the match but the IPL 2020 final will be most likely played in that stadium having 1,10,000 seating capacity.”

However, as per IPL’s policy, the defending champions get the hosting rights of the final. So, Wankhede Stadium could once again host the final, but reports of Motera Stadium hosting the summit clash cannot be ruled out as well.
