Manchester United and Manchester City will be playing their first match of this season in the following weekends.
Leeds United, after 16 long years, will be playing their first match in English Premier League. These two teams have a between relation in case of coincidence. 30 years ago, Leeds own the Championship and the same year, Liverpool had also crowned the 'Champion of England'. The same thing happened in 2019, again!
IPL. Yes. At last, after a delay of 6 months, finally, the biggest cricket league is happening. Keeping this year's impediments in mind, it is the BCCI that should be credited for organizing the event at all.
13 members of the team Chennai Super Kings have tested CoVI-19 positive. Still, they will play the inaugural match on 19th September.
All the matches will take place in Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, and Dubai. Sticking to the strict regulations the matches will be played with empty chairs. No chants from boiling supporters, no public broadcast, no IPL-ish sound- it will be the first time experience for the cricket lovers.
A global pandemic is ravaging through the world. No cure in sight. But the sports world has commenced coping up with strict regulations.
