When the IPL is in India, all the teams got a chance to play a lot of matches on their home ground, but this time the IPL will be played in three cities of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). In such a situation, the teams will not have the opportunity to take advantage of the home ground, so that all eight teams will have to change their strategy drastically.
This Is The Equation Of Home Ground
Some teams have home grounds such as Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Delhi Capitals, Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals, who have to play half their matches in Dubai, while the other two teams have domestic grounds at Abu Dhabi, but the problem is that this time the opposing team will also be fully aware of the conditions there by playing more matches on that ground.
There is no difference between Abu Dhabi and Dubai when it comes to on-field records, while the circumstances in Sharjah are completely different, where each team has to play one match.
Who Played How Many Matches
|Chennai Super Kings||3||4||7|
|Kolkata Knight Riders||3||4||7|
|Kings XI Punjab||3||5||7|
|Royal Challengers Bangalore||3||4||7|
UAE City Is Breathless In Scoring Rate
Big scores are seen when IPL is in India, but the scoring rate of all the three cities of UAE is very low. In such a situation, it may be that the big score matches are not seen.
In 2017, Sharjah has a scoring rate of 8.1 in the T20 and it is ranked ninth in this case. After this, Dubai is at number 12 with a scoring rate of 7.5 and Abu Dhabi is at number 14 with a scoring rate of 7.3. At the same time, scores of more than 179 in IPL and PSL have also been made highest on the grounds of India since 2017.
In Dubai, this was done only in seven out of 45 matches, while in Abu Dhabi, only one out of four matches.

Picking Singles Can Be Tough
Long sixes are seen in IPL. Players rely more on fours and sixes, but this time on the desert land, the batsmen will have to run a lot to steal a single, as the records are saying so. All three cities of the UAE have scored the most single runs in T20 since 2017.
