The Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) on Monday confirmed that they have received the official "Letter of Intent" from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to stage the 13th season of the Indian Premier League in the UAE. The ECB, however, awaits the final confirmation from the Indian government. 

"We have received the (official) letter and now wait on the decision from the Indian Government which will ink the final deal," ECB Secretary-General Mubashshir Usmani was quoted as saying in the ECB statement.

IPL 2020 was initially scheduled for a March 29 start, but was postponed indefinitely owing to rise in coronavirus cases in the country. However, following the postponement of World T20 and the Asia Cup, BCCI had the decks cleared to host the tournament. UAE was selected as the venue and the dates were announced earlier last week by IPL chairman Brijesh Patel.
