Franchises request BCCI for organising warm-up games ahead of IPL 2020

Franchises request BCCI for organising warm-up games ahead of IPL 2020

The Indian Premier League will likely experience warm-up games between the participating franchises ahead of the scheduled start of the tournament on 19th September.

All sides play simulation games within the group ahead of IPL. And since the players have not participated in competitive cricket since the outbreak of COVID-19, the franchises have requested the BBCI to allow the sides to play “serious warm-up games to get back into the groove.”

At least 5 franchises have requested the BCCI to organize warm-up games ahead of IPL 2020. A franchise executive revealed that the board has been cagey, but they expect a reply “in a day or two.” 

Even the broadcaster had shown interest in either streaming or televising the matches subject to approval.

An IPL insider disclosed that the BCCI may leave it to the franchises to sort it out among themselves instead of taking the extra responsibility at the eleventh hour.

Another franchise executive emphasized the matches will help all stakeholders. He said that be it the operations of the IPL, the cricketers, the franchise management or the broadcasters, warm-up matches will be a proper dress rehearsal, something much-needed given the times in which they are living in.
