In such a situation, all the franchises want to bring their players to Dubai as soon as possible.
The BCCI and England Cricket decided to cancel the Manchester Test match, to be played from September 10 to September 14, after mutual consent. After the cancellation of this match, now the franchise teams of IPL are trying to bring their players to UAE.
