Our facilities continue to be upgraded and our pitches as the past has shown are ideal for an event like the IPL. To host this world-class tournament once again is a privilege and cricket fans can rest assured that once again records will be broken, and cricketing history will be made in Sharjah.”

Sharjah Cricket Stadium witnessed the highest run chase in IPL history when Rajasthan Royals chased down 223 to win by 4 wickets against Kings XI Punjab. From epic showdowns and last season’s highest opening partnership to matching the maximum number of sixes hit in an IPL game, Sharjah cricket stadium was the venue for many an IPL record in 2020.

The IPL will be followed by the BCCI's hosting of the T20 World Cup in the UAE from October 17th with Sharjah Cricket expected to be one of the venues.
