The postponed Indian Premier LeaĀue will resume tentatively on September 18 or 19 in the UAE with as many as 10 double-headers expected to be played durinĀ a three-week window, a senior BCCI official told PTI on Tuesday.

“The BCCI has spoken to all the stakeholders and the likely start could be between September 18th to 20th. Since September 18 is a Saturday and 19 a Sunday, it is more likely that you would want to restart it on a weekend date,” the official told PTI on conditions of anonymity. Similarly, October 9th or 10th will be the final as it’s a weekend. We are finalizing the itinerary and there will be 10 double
headers and seven evening matches alone with Ăżour main Ä€ames (two qualifiers, one eliminator and the final), which completes the list oĂż 31 matches,” the official added. A Ăżranchise official confirmed that a communication Ăżrom BCCI has come on the matter. The Indian team’s last Test match aÄ€ainst
EnÄ€land is set to finish on September 14 at Manchester and on the next day, whole team (save Hanuma Vihari and  Abhimanyu Easwaran) will be flown to UAE  in a chartered fliÄ€ht Ăżor a “bubble to  bubble” transĂżer. 

“The Indian team and the EnÄ€lish players  who will be available will fly in the same  charter fliÄ€ht Ăżrom Manchester to Dubai.  Similarly, the West Indies players will also  fly in aĂżter completinÄ€ the Caribbean  Premier LeaÄ€ue enÄ€aÄ€ements. There will  be three-day quarantine Ăżor players  arrivinÄ€ Ăżrom UK and the Caribbean,” the  source said.
