Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir rated the UAE as great venue to host the Indian Premier League if things go as predicted.
According to IPL chairman Brijesh Patel, the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is set to be played in the UAE from September 19 to November 8. And former Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir believes that more than anything, the tournament will change the mood of the nation which has been engulfed by the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking on Star Sports show Cricket Connected, former India opener Gambhir discussed the importance of IPL season-13. "It does not matter where it goes but if it (IPL) goes to UAE it's a great venue to play cricket in any format and plus most importantly I think it's going to change the mood of the nation as well.
"It's not about which franchise wins or which player scores runs or which guy takes a wicket, its simply changing the mood of the nation. So this IPL probably will be bigger than the rest of the IPLs because I think this is for the nation."
