Hooray! The Indian Premier League is coming home. It seemed the whole country, from young to old, gave out a sigh of relief when the IPL schedule 2021 popped up.
The year 2020 was an unexpected real trial for the inhabitants of the Earth, but for the citizens of India, last year was a double test: there was no IPL championship in India. During the traditional April-March match period, the world descended into lockdown, so mass games were out of the question. And cricket is not cricket without spectators at the stadium. Modern technology fails to capture even 1% of the excitement that reigns in the stadium during IPL fixtures. While ultimately most fans watched the game on TV and оn the Net: the game delighted residents of the United Arab Emirates, and then, in the fall, when the hottest period in the Persian Gulf region was over. The Indian Premier League 2020 final was played on November 10, 2020 between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
The Mumbai Indians won the final and became champions for the 5th time. However, that's history.
The founding date of the IPL is September 13, 2007.
It takes the sixth place in the rating of all sports leagues in the world. Its full name is Vivo Indian Premier League after its sponsor — Vivo Communication Technology Co. Ltd.is a multinational high-tech business.
The 14th season of IPL matches fixtures will start in Chennai on April 9, 2021 at the arena M. A. Chidambaram Stadium. Besides, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Kolkata re-host the Games. Eight teams will play as follows:
1. All teams play in a round-robin fashion — one home/away match.
As a result, 4 teams qualify for the playoffs.
2. The two winning teams play each other. The one that wins goes to the final. The team that would lose plays the second qualification game. The winner goes to the final, where 1st place is played.
3. The third and fourth place teams play each other. The winning team has a chance to get to the finals — it plays the underdog in the playoffs. If it wins, it's one step away from winning the tournament.
That is, even a fourth place team can become the champion! That's amazing.
The finals will be held on May 30 in Ahmedabad, at the Narendra Modi Stadium. The IPL match schedule coincides with a period of essential Indian holidays: April 14, Vaisaki is the New Year of the Sikhs and May 10, Buddha Purnima — the most sacred day of the Buddhist calendar is the birthday of Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. But the citizens of the country are too keen on cricket to deprive themselves of the pleasure of watching IPL fixtures and results. Moreover, April and May turn into a solid festival of flowers, songs and sports. It's a wonderful time! No wonder Indians look forward to it so much.
Why don't we talk about women's cricket? After all, the sport is no less popular among women in the world than it is among men. The first Cricket World Cup was a women's tournament (in 1973, two years before the first men's one).
And the result of the Australian Belindi Clark at the one-day international tournament - 229 could be repeated by Sachin Tendulkar only in 2010. After 13 years!
The Indian women's cricket championship, The Women's T20 Challenge, known as the Women's IPL, has been held since 2018. Last season's tournament was held from November 4-9, 2020 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium in the United Arab Emirates at the same time as the IPL playoffs. The winning team was the Trailblazers.
The current season is played by 3 teams: Supernovas, Trailblazers, Velocity. IPL match fixtures will traditionally be held at the same time as the IPL playoffs. The sporting community has long believed that women's cricket needs its own full-fledged IPL. Only in this way can a champion women's national team be formed. Indian women cricketers have the talent, motivation and more to win the world title. What do you think?
Already in the current, 14th season, 5 foreign players are allowed to participate in the game — until recently no more than 4 have been allowed.
Next year there will be 10 teams in the IPL tournament.
It has been announced that the women's tournament will expand to 4 teams in 2022 and 7-8 teams in 2024.
We are just days away from the start of the tournament. Passions are running high. Everyone expects IPL results and fixtures.
Many cricket fans believe that the final of the tournament is predictable — the Mumbai Indians have held the lead in the Indian Premier League for many years. But is it all so clear? After all, the road to victory last season was very difficult — the team lost two of its three matches in the round-robin phase. That was threatening!
According to the IPL 2021 schedule, the season will begin with the Mumbai Indians playing the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Recall that last season for this team ended in 4th place. In the final, Mumbai Indians beat Delhi Capitals. This year, the Capital team plays its first match on April 10. Its opponent is Chennai Super Kings.
Yes, the start of the season is promising. By the way, information for those who are interested: Mitchell Stark refused to participate in the IPL 2021.
A definite decision whether fans will be allowed into the stadiums has been awaited for a very long time. A couple of weeks ago this question was actively discussed. Millions of sports fans followed the news and hoped for the best. But the demands of the Indian government and the WHO's recommendations took precedence — the mass events are banned.
The beginning of 2021 engenders hope to the people of India that the epidemiological indicators would stabilize and severe restrictions would be lifted. But at the beginning of March the situation worsened sharply. As a consequence, meetings were banned and regular international flights were cancelled. The COVID-19 pandemic is still taking its toll. Undoubtedly, all this saddens the fans. But in any case, they remain with their teams every fiber and keep their fingers crossed for their victory.
