In a latest development, NADA has finalised its programme for the IPL, to be held in UAE from September 19 to November 10, according to a report in the Times of India. 

The report further suggests that the NADA will setup five Dope Control Stations in the UAE - one each in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. Also, the other two at designated training venues - ICC Academy in Dubai and Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
NADA director general, Navin Agarwal, informed TOI that the dope control officers have been asked to conduct in competition testing only at playing venues. 50 samples of cricketers will be collected during the tournament.  
Also, apart from urine samples, some blood samples might be collected too and leading Indian stars could be tested, like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni.
There will be three teams travelling to the UAE, in separate batches. “The first batch will leave in the first week of September. Before their departure, all team members will be tested for Covid-19. Upon their arrival in the UAE, they will be tested again.”
