After a long wait of 677 days, the world-famous T20 series of Indian Premier League or IPL is finally back. As the matches were halted midway due to the pandemic, fans eagerly waited for the next season to commence. Even though the last season was conducted in the UAE, the BCCI or Board of Control for Cricket in India has decided to be the host and arrange the matches on the home ground only. And this single decision has caused an uproar amongst the cricket fans, albeit in a good way.
This year, no delays will be observed in the games. Punctuality will be maintained, and the first premier opening match will commence on the decided date and time only. The first match will be held between the two strongest IPL board teams- Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI). This match is going to be held on Friday at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
