However, with the final of IPL 2020, scheduled on November 10, to be played in Dubai, the persistent shower could leave an impact on the playing conditions should the rainfall continue till Tuesday. The Dubai pitch is expected to soak on the moisture which could ultimately assist the pacers early on the in the match. But it is too early to predict anything when it comes to the final of IPL 2020. There are even question marks on whether there is any reserve day for IPL 2020 final.
