The UAE has offered to host the cash-rich T20 league, the Indian Premier League (IPL) at its venue, however, the BCCI is not in a position to say anything for the time being.
Earlier, an official of the Sri Lanka Cricket Board (SLC) had suggested that India can host the IPL in the island nation, but an official of the Board of Control for India (BCCI) refused. Denying the news, he said that there is no such proposal.
It is too early to say anything about starting the league and choosing the venues wisely as the coronavirus epidemic around the world is a sign of complete cessation in the face of all cricketing scenarios. Officials are not sure when the situation will improve and they will end the league, so the BCCI cannot require to respond to any offer to host the Indian Premier League (IPL).
News of the venue selection for the IPL was also made and foreign venues were considered, but cricketing authorities in India did not suggest any hosting amid the epidemic due to the lack of confirmation in front of the league.

“The UAE has offered to host the IPL if we want them to. But right now when there is no international travel, there is no question of taking a call on that,” Arun Dhumal was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
“The health and security of players and all participants is our priority. At the moment, the entire world travel has come to a standstill, so there is nothing we can decide at this stage,” he added.
