With the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League set to commence between September 18 and November 8 in the United Arab Emirates, India's badminton star Kidambi Srikanth is keen on watching MS Dhoni "play again."
Taking to Twitter, he wrote, "Great to know #IPL2020 is happening. I’m excited and looking forward to see @msdhoni play again!"
MS Dhoni has been on a sabbatical ever since India's semi-final loss against New Zealand in the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
He was set to make a comeback with Chennai Super Kings in March, when the IPL was originally supposed to begin but was indefinitely postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has joined the franchises in making logistical plans for the 13th edition of the cash-rich league to be played in the UAE as reported by IANS.
Apart from the IPL teams, logistics and operations teams from the BCCI will also be heading to Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah to see to it that preparations are on in full swing and there is no execution woes. If the UAE airlines don't start operations then all will fall back on chartered planes.
The ICC on Monday announced that the T20 World Cup cannot be held in Australia in October-November as the time isn't conducive to host so many teams in the country as the threat of the coronavirus pandemic isn't over yet. This has opened the door for the BCCI to host the IPL in that window.
