"We have received the letter and now wait on the decision from the Indian government which will ink the final deal. There are many factors which influence operations and logistics of hosting what is the world's most exciting, popular, and lucrative tournament," Mubashshir Usmani said.
IPL Governing Council chairman Brijesh Patel had confirmed the window
Previously, IPL Governing Council chairman Brijesh Patel confirmed that the tournament will be played in September-November. The reports of shifting it to UAE emerged after the ICC postponed the Men's T20 World Cup. However, the tournament is yet to get a go-ahead from the government.
The matches will likely be held at three venues- The Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Sharjah Cricket Stadium and Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
"UAE boasts some of the best practice facilities and stadia in the world across three Emirates (Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah) which we are confident will be more than adequate to support the eight-team tournament," added Usmani.
