Indian Premier League 2021 TV Guide
IPL 2021 is the fourteenth edition of the competition having been created in 2007 by the Board of Control For Cricket in India (BCCI). The format sees eight teams play each other twice in a round-robin style league.
The four best teams from that period play in the finals. The top two teams play the first final, known as ‘Qualifier 1’. The winner of that game goes straight through to the Grand Final. The second final is known as the ‘Eliminator’. The winner of that game will face off against the loser of the ‘Qualifier 1’ with the winner of that game going through to face the winner of the ‘Qualifier 1’ in the Indian Premier League Final.
When: April 11 – June 6, India
The IPL 2021 will start this April and run through to June. The tournament will be a good indicator and trial run for the T20 World Cup later in the year. It is as yet unverified if the competition will run in venues across India or a smaller amount of stadia to prevent potential Covid-19 infections.
