latest updates on IPL 2021


Now, out of these last 20 matches of IPL 2021 will be played at Kolkata and Bengaluru while the rest 36 will be scheduled in the remaining 04 states.

The timings for IPL 2021 are also changed, everything is scheduled 30 minutes earlier as compared to previous edition. The first match for the day will begin at 03:30 PM and the next one will begin at 07:30 PM on the same day.

There was quite a delay in structuring the schedule, due to the reason that there were quite limitations due to COVID and precautions were to be set in measures.

“The fixtures of the tournament have been mapped in a way that every team will travel only three times during the league stage, thus reducing commute and minimizing risk,” BCCI secretary, Jay Shah.

Moreover, there was a tough decision made for Mumbai as the number of cases was continuously increasing there.

The decision on whether there should be an audience or not is yet to decided and will be finalized at a later date. As of now, consider that there would be no audience at the venue.

The reason for doing so is that managing an audience for 08 teams and 56 matches while hosting the event at 06 different locations for over a period of almost two months, seems quite complicated and risky.

The first match will be between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai at the season’s opener. While the playoffs will be scheduled at Ahmedabad.
