In this video, Mike Henson also explained how the overseas players and the Indian players will be joining the team after their ongoing domestic/international matches. A few of them are already quarantining in Chennai. Head coach Simon Katich's arrival from Australia has been delayed due to a documentation issue.

The Transfer of the Indian players who are playing against England in Pune in a secure bio-bubble is easy to transfer from bubble to bubble. Whereas the senior players who are coming from other countries are kind of hard to transfer.

The players will be arriving in India till April 1st in a staggered manner, as the time is shorter to prepare for the matches it's kind of hard said, Mike Henson.

Delhi Capitals captain, Shreyas Iyer to miss the entire 14th edition of the Indian Premier League due to a shoulder injury in the 1st One Day International match against England on March 23rd.

The skipper tried to catch the ball during the 8th over of the match and fell on the left shoulder. Immidealty, he was rushed out of the field by his fellow teammates.

The scan of his shoulder shown a subluxation (partially dislocated) in his shoulder and is likely to undergo major surgery in the month of April. 

According to the reports, Shreyas might take 4-5 months of leave from the sport to heal his injury. Hopefully, he might be back by the T-Twenty world championship.

Meanwhile, the Delhi capitals need to find a new captain for their team and also a new batsman at the middle order. The question is who is going to take his position in the team and take the team towards the finals of IPL 14th edition.

Delhi Capitals extraordinarily well compared to other big teams in the season under Shreyas captaincy. This news is a big blow for the team who are looking to actually grab the cup this year.

BCCI Released the IPL schedule for 2021

On March 7th, BCCI released the schedule for India Premier League for 2021 and stated that the matches will be played behind closed door due to the ongoing pandemic.

Here are some highlights of the Schedule

The first match is played between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challenger Bangalore in Chennai M.A Chidambaram Stadium on April 9th.

The stadiums and the teams playing in the stadium are irrelevant - it is unlikely that the Chennai team will play in Chennai and other teams too, as the BCCI planned less movement to ensure the COVID protocol are in place. So each team will travel only three times during the league stage.

If you observe the IPL schedule carefully only two stadiums are used at any given point in time. After using these two stadiums, the matches are shifting to another two stadiums. So, there is no wonder why the teams are not playing on their home grounds at any given point.

Stadiums Using in the IPL 2021

Chennai - M.A Chidambaram Stadium

Mumbai - Wankhede Stadium

Kolkata - Eden Gardens

Bangalore - Chinnaswamy stadium

Ahmadabad - Motera Stadium

Delhi - Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium

Delhi and Ahmedabad host eight matches each and the remaining all stadiums host 10 matches each in the league stage.

Double Matches on weekends

There will be a total of 11 doubleheaders where 6 teams will play three-afternoon matches & two teams will play two-afternoon matches. The afternoon games start at 3:30 PM IST and the evening games will start at 7:30 PM IST.


The first qualifier match is on the 25th of May, Eliminator is on the 26th, the second qualifier is on 28th and the final is on the 30th of May. All these matches are going to take place in Ahmedabad Motera Stadium.

Where to stream the matches

You can stream the matches in Disney Plus Hotstar app by paying a minimum of ₹365 per annum or you can watch it on Star Sports by paying to your DTH or cable operator.

Chances of postponement of the Tournament

BCCI successfully hosted last year’s tournament with strict protocols and bio bubbles. But the tournament is postponed as the covid cases are increasing in the country.

There is a high chance that this tournament might be postponed again this year as the Covid cases in Maharashtra are increasing. If the local government impose or the central government impose any stricter rules to seize the virus, there will be the slightest chance that these matches might take place.

BCCI can argue that there will not be any crowd involved in the entire tournament and allow them to play the matches.

Let’s hope for the best that the tournament will be played without any disturbances from the government and the virus.

Preity Zinta was at the helm of things for the fourteenth year in a row, but this time with a changed name on the jersey.

They were lucky to get the No. 1 ranked ICC T20I batsman in Dawid Malan for just Rs 1.5 crores but weren’t at their best for the rest of the day.
