IPL Final 2021: BCCI negotiations in Dubai, final dates, teams’ form, and comparison to the season 2020
The Indian Cricket Board has come to a decision to organize the remaining matches of IPL 2021 in the UAE. This match is planned to be completed from September to October. For this, the BCCI is working on the schedule of the remaining 31 matches of the tournament. Under this, there is the most headache regarding the date of the final. IPL 2021 was suspended on 5 May after the Corona case. The move was taken after 29 matches of the tournament. Cases of corona virus were reported in four teams of the tournament. After this, it was said in the past that the BCCI is considering completing the tournament between September 18 and October 10. This resolution was adopted at a special general meeting of BCCI on 29 May.
After this BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah went to UAE to negotiate with the Emirates Cricket Board. Now there is news that BCCI can hold the IPL 2021 final on October 15 instead of October 10. This will be done due to the reduction in the number of matches in a day in the UAE heat. It is very hot in the UAE during September and the sun is also hot during the match at 3 pm. This causes a lot of trouble to the players. In such a situation, the BCCI is in talks with the officials.
IPL 2021 Season to Resume on September
IPL is a remarkable T20 annual event that features all the stars of the sport in a two-month feast involving some best commentators, multitudes of spectators, some top sponsors, and even some cheerleaders. But more than all that, though, IPL betting is a serious money-making business. For the experienced IPL bettor, the really good news is that there are 13 years of IPL data and historical results that we can examine prior to considering what to wager on with Parimatch betting platform.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has set a date for the rescheduling of the IPL 2021 finals to be played in the UAE. Its first match of the second leg will be held on September 19, and the final game is scheduled to take place on October 15. The Dussehra holiday also falls on that day. In a media interview with ANI news agency, a spokesman for the BCCI stated that the negotiations between the BCCI and the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) have been successful and the Indian board strongly believes that the remaining IPL games will be played smoothly in Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi.
The ANI news agency reports that an official spokesman said that negotiations went really well and the ECB gave a verbal agreement to host the event even ahead of the SGM BCCI. The decision was made last week. The first game following the season reopening will now be on Sept. 19. The finals will be on Oct. 15. BCCI has always counted on 25 days of set-up to arrange the remaining matches.
Teams qualified for the IPL 2021 Playoff: list of the teams and changes in the squads
The league phase itself qualifies the teams for the IPL playoffs, first and foremost. Four of the highest-scoring IPL cricket teams from the standings advance to the IPL playoffs.

The franchises will each play 14 matches against each other, and after all 14 matches of all teams are completed. The four most scoring clubs will proceed to the playoffs of IPL 2021/qualification. As the schedule of the tournament has been changed, the only two dates set for now, as already have been mentioned, are the dates of the first game (19 September 2021, Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Royal Challengers Bangalore), and the final match in the IPL UAE schedule to be played on the 15th of October. In order to coordinate the ultimate scheduling logistics for the remaining 31 matches of the second leg of the Indian Premier League, the franchises intend to head to the UAE.
Their many changes inside the franchises. Talking about former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his very special Suresh Raina. After being together in the Indian team for a long time, both of them retired from international cricket last year. Dhoni announced first, then after a few minutes, Raina also retired. This had surprised everyone, but now Raina has surprised again by taking another similar decision. Raina has said that if Dhoni gets out of the IPL next year, he will also retire from this league.
