IPL 2020 anchors and hosts: The SportsRush presents for you the complete list of Star Sports’ hosts and anchors for IPL 2020.
The biggest cricket carnival around the world is all set to begin in the form of the 13th season of the Indian Premier League from tomorrow as defending champions Mumbai Indians will take on runners-up in Chennai Super Kings in Abu Dhabi.
In what will be the second IPL season to be played in the UAE, only three stadiums will host the entire tournament which is likely to culminate on November 8. While BCCI hasn’t made public the schedule for the knockouts, it had earlier hinted that IPL 2020 would be played between September 19 – November 8.
With only a day remaining for IPL 2020 to kick-start, it is worth mentioning that all players have reached UAE after completing their national duties. England and Rajasthan Royals all-rounder Ben Stokes, who is in Christchurch due to personal reasons, remains the only player who is yet to reach UAE.

Having covered multiple major events across sports, Langer will undoubtedly be missed by her plentiful fans.
