Fans can hardly wait for the much-delayed Indian Premier League to start on Saturday - and their excited tweets are proof. The Twenty20 tournament usually starts in March, but was delayed this year along with other sporting events due to the coronavirus pandemic. It is now all set to begin in two days' time and expected to bring some welcome relief to cricket fans. Although the tournament has pared down on the glitz factor amid the pandemic, excitement for IPL 2020 remains high as ever on social media.
