BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, Jay Shah (Secretary of BCCI), staff, and other important members pulled off the impossible and making it a dream to the IPL fans across the globe. Mumbai Indians beat Delhi Capitals to win their fifth IPL trophy.
The ongoing coronavirus crisis had earlier sabotaged the international sporting calendar of all cricketing activities across the world. The thirteenth edition of the IPL was supposed to be held in March but was postponed for obvious reasons.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India had other ideas. The board came up with a smart idea of hosting the IPL in a foreign nation. India’s governing body successfully hosted the cash-rich Indian Premier League in the United Arab Emirates.
KXIP captain KL Rahul won the orange cap for dominating the batting charts in the tournament. He scored 670 runs. Delhi Capitals fast bowler Kagiso Rabada won the purple cap as he took as many as 30 wickets to his name.

The former Indian opening batsman Sehwag hosted a show on the internet where he came up with his expert analysis on pre-match and post-match events. The interesting cricket show became a massive hit thing among the fans.
