The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the schedule for the remainder of the IPL 2021 season on Sunday. Suspended earlier this year due to a cluster of COVID-19 positive cases inside different teams’ bubbles in India, the IPL 2021 will resume on September 19 in Dubai.

Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK), two of the most successful teams in the league’s history, will renew their rivalry to kick off the UAE leg of the IPL 2021.

 

Dubai will host a further 12 of the 31 remaining matches in the tournament. Abu Dhabi and Sharjah will play host to 8 and 10 matches, respectively, as per the schedule announced by the BCCI and IPL governing council. Sharjah, the most high-scoring of the three venues, will host teams for two games each.
