An announcement made said that the IPL would no longer take place behind closed doors. Fans will return to the stadium to watch the UAE leg of the competition. However, fans will not be at full capacity, only at “limited capacity”. IPL’s media advisory released a statement citing that fans will be witnessing all the action from the vicinity.

Indian Premier League 2021

IPL fans are more than pleased to learn that BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) has corrected the remainder of the 2021 IPL season after being suspended in May due to COVID-19.

Many IPL fans have asked when the IPL will resume. Well, the good news is that the Premier League continues on September 19th to complete the remainder of the 2021 season. After being suspended for several months, the first match will take place in the UAE. News of the resumption of the IPL in the UAE in September was confirmed on Twitter by ANI Digital. Since the news broke, netizens have been reacting to the announcement, especially IPL fans.

A BCCI official said discussions were fruitful between the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) and the BCCI. They told ANI that the ECB gave them the green light to host the IPL before the BCCI SGM. While talking about the games and the resumption of the IPL, the official noted that the first game would take place on September 19 and the final on October 15. The official pointed out that the BCCI wanted to have a 25-day window to complete the remaining games of the 2021 season.

The official also commented on the availability of foreign players for the remainder of the season. He said discussions are ongoing and they hope all foreign players playing in the IPL are available for resumption. According to the official, if more players do not show up for the tournament, the BCCI will decide the next course of action. Officials and fans are hoping to have a fun and exciting 14th edition of the IPL.

ANI Digital said on Twitter that for now the final will take place on October 15th. If all goes well, that is when the final will take place. The last game was on May 2 between Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings before officials postponed the IPL on May 4.

BCCI deliberations had predicted the remaining games of the 2021 IPL season in the UAE and not in India due to the monsoon season. The 2020 IPL took place in the UAE without any interruption, the pitches in the UAE are far better than those in India. That’s why moving the remaining IPL matches to the UAE may not be so favorable for some teams. Here are some teams that may have difficulties after resuming the IPL:

Royals of Rajasthan

This team may not be happy with the move from the Indian Premier League to the UAE. The former champions had a pretty bad season last year. Despite taking several victories in the early stages of the competition, RR failed to make it to the UAE.

Their key players will also be missing in action, such as Jofra Archer, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler. Archer was a key player in the Rajasthan-based franchise taking 20 wickets from 14 games. RR has a lot to think about on the resumption of the IPL in the UAE.

Knights Knights of Calcutta

The Kolkata Knights had an average season last year in the UAE. They finished fifth and scored seven wins. Everyone expected the team to improve significantly in the 14th edition of the competition, but the disappointing performance and poor captain’s armband failed the team.

Before the suspension of the championship, KKR was seventh in the standings after only two wins. The team had played seven games before half-time. To add to their misery, Pat Cummins, their Australian pacer, has retired and will not show up for the rest of the season. KKR skipper Eoin Morgan will also miss the return of the IPL to the UAE due to national duties. The KKR’s staunch West Indies supporter may also be unavailable (Andre Russell) as the Caribbean Premier League starts on August 28, with the final taking place on September 19. With uncertainty lurking over top KKR players like Cummins, Rusell and Morgan, the team may not do so as the IPL resumes in the UAE.
