The IPL 2021 season will kick off next month, with the first match scheduled for April 9, 2021. The first match will be played in Chennai between the Mumbai Indians and the Royal Challengers Bangalore. The tournament will be held at six separate locations around the world.
On May 30, 2021, the tournament will come to a close with the final match at the Narendra Modi cricket stadium in Ahmadabad. The eight teams that will compete in the IPL 2021 are the Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, Punjab Kings, Delhi Capitals, and Rajasthan Royals.
BCCI has taken several steps for IPL 2021 in response to Covid-19 issues in the region. Just six venues, for example, will host all of the matches. During the group stages, each team can only fly three times. The first matches will be held behind closed doors, but a decision will be made later about whether or not crowds will be allowed inside the ground.
