UAE hosted the 2020 season in three cities behind closed doors, and the 13th edition emerged victorious with a mega success among fans and broadcasters. The Indian T20 League is all set to enter the 14th season this year. With a gap of just five months, the mega auction has been postponed for a year, and the mini-auction will be held in February for Indian T20 League 2021.
