A total of 31 games will be played in UAE and the final of the exciting T20 league will be played on 15th October. Earlier, the tournament got off the mark on 18th April. After COVID19 entered the camps of franchises BCCI was forced to suspend tournaments with an immediate effect.
Meanwhile, players like Wriddhiman Saha, Amit Mishra, Varun Chakravarthy, and others were tested COVID positive. This was one big reason why IPL governing council took such a strong decision without much discussion over the same. However, now for the third time in history IPL will be played in UAE.

As per the schedule, IPL 2021 will witness seven double-headers in the UAE leg. The game slots for the games are 3:30 pm and 7:30 pm. There is no change in the timings and they are the same on which IPL was being played in India.
