🏏 IPL 2021 - Updates: Teams, Records, Stats, Schedule, Discussions and More

The new season of the IPL is around the corner and players have already started gearing up for the IPL 2021. Unlike last season, IPL 14 will be played in India as the 60 matches will be played over 52 days across six venues in Chennai, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Ahmedabad.

The season will kick off on April 9 in Chennai with the defending champions Mumbai Indians, led by Rohit Sharma, taking on Virat Kohli led RCB.

The newly renovated world’s largest stadium in Ahmedabad will host the playoffs and the final, which be held on May 30. The home advantage is taken away from all of the eight teams as every team will play all their 14 games on neutral venues.

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the tournament will be played behind closed doors, which means fans will have to watch the IPL 2021 live via TV and/or online streaming platforms.

BCCI announces harsh fines for slow over rates

Each team will now be mandatorily required to finish an IPL inning by 90 minutes. This also includes the two strategic time-outs of two and half minutes each.

The minimum over rate to be achieved in IPL Matches shall be 14.11 overs per hour (ignoring the time taken by time-outs).

Other Rule Changes:

The soft signal will no longer come into play, and the third umpire will make the final decision based on his discretion, with the help of technology.

The long-debated Umpire’s Call rule is here to stay. The short-run rule has also been altered. Now, the third umpire will have the right to overturn the original decision given by the on-field umpire regarding a short run.
