Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are scheduled to leave for the UAE on August 21, a day after their six-day camp in Chennai to train for the tournament.
The tournament was moved out of India due to the coronavirus pandemic and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decided to shift the 13th edition of the IPL to the UAE which will be played for 53 days, from September 19 to November 10, across three venues — Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and Dubai.
