The IPL 2020 has begun with a clash between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK). IPL 2020 has been shifted out of the country, yet again the reason being Covid-19. All the IPL matches will be played in the United Arab Emirates instead of India this year. The pandemic delayed the match this year by several months.
As IPL 2020 begins today most people will enjoy the comfort of their couch and watch the matches with their family. Like every year, IPL has live broadcasting partnerships. For television broadcast, IPL has a collaboration with Star Sports like every year. As far as the digital platforms are concerned people will be able to watch all IPL matches this year on Disney+ Hotstar alongside a few other platforms.
