Must Watch Cricket in 2021
Here are some of the stand out games and competitions set to take place in 2021.
Just when you thought that cricket had reached its maximum level of unique concepts, another one pops up. The inaugural ‘The Hundred’ competition will get underway in the UK from July. Teams will get 100 balls per innings to bowl out the opposition with teams jam-packed with international stars.
Indian Premier League (IPL)
The IPL is easily the biggest domestic cricket competition in the world. The most talented players in the game take part every year thanks to eyewatering financial incentives. But the money just makes this game better, and it’s a must-watch for cricket fans who love their world-class T20.
Big Bash League (BBL)
One of the highlights of the Australian summer in the Big Bash League. The completion includes some of the biggest names in the game from home and abroad, battling it out over four months of first-class cricket. Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder are the defending men’s and women’s champions respectively.
T20 World Cup
Covid means that a big question mark still lingers over the T20 World Cup. The competition was originally meant to take place in India, but will now get underway in the UAE. The West Indies are the defending champions, with the likes of Australia, England, India and New Zealand some of the early favourites.
If you’re an Australian or English cricket fan, there is no bigger game than the Ashes. The five-test series will get underway in December, with England looking for their first win on Australian cricket soil since 2011. Australia retained the Urn in 2018 in England, meaning that the Poms will be desperate to take it back home.
