The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is easily one of the most-awaited sporting events of this year. After plenty of delays, the IPL 2020 schedule was set to be announced on Friday by 8 PM (IST) but fans were left frustrated when the clock went past the hour and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) still did not announce the fixture list for IPL 2020 in UAE.
Eventually, fans on Twitter got impatient and start to share hilarious memes:

Four Elite Umpires for IPL 2020
Four umpires from the ICC’s Elite Panel are set to officiate in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), starting in the UAE from September 19.
According to BCCI sources in the know of developments, they said that a total of 16 umpires are set to officiate in this edition of the cash-rich league and that will include four umpires from ICC`s Elite Panel.
Chris Gaffaney (New Zealand), Richard Ellingworth (England), Paul Reifel (Australia) and Nitin Menon (India) are the ones from the ICC’s Elite Panel and the rest will be those in BCCI’s own panel. “There are four from ICC’s Elite Panel who have been selected to officiate in the tournament. The rest are Indian umpires. We are looking to bring in the umpires in the UAE around September 10,” the sources said.
