The fate of IPL 2020 is still hanging by a thread but with improvements. Even if the hosts decide to go forward with the event, the venue still needs to be decided.
Currently, the BCCI is sitting on a ratio of 3-2 regarding the hosting. The majority of the voters believe that it is important IPL 2020 takes place in India. The other section of the voters believe if required it should shift to a different country.
