India's most highly awaited cricketing event, the Indian Premier League is all set to bring the cricketing fervour in less than 3 weeks, and fans are waiting with bated breath to watch their favourite cricketers battle it out amongst one another. This is a time of boundless excitement for cricket fanatics across the country. While excitement levels run high, this season of the IPL, Season 14 will deviate slightly from the usual format of the tournament.

IPL Season 14 will commence on April 09, 2021. To start the tournament off, the 2X reigning champions Mumbai Indians will play against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai. The tournament will wrap up with the final taking place on May 30, 2021 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Indian Premier League heads homeward

Last year, in compliance with the COVID-19 norms, IPL Season 13 was, for the first time, held in venues outside India. The matches were played across three stadiums in the UAE. At the time, no audience were allowed in match stadiums.

Now, Indian Premier League is coming back home, but will only be played across 6 venues in the country. These are Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, and Mumbai. To avoid home advantage, no team is scheduled to play at their home venue.

Since we're at a very delicate stage with the COVID-19 situation, the BCCI confirmed that the tournament will begin behind closed doors, and a call on letting spectators in will be taken at a later stage.

The start of the IPL season not only marks an almost festive mood among us Indians, but also paves way for the IPL betting scene. This year, since a lot of the information cleared up only recently, it is hard to get an idea on IPL matches and Odds. However, there are a few websites which can help you out.

Once again, the title sponsor for the Indian Premier League is VIVO, the Chinese technology giant. Last year, owing to certain conflicts, the partnership was brought to a halt, but that has been resumed once again for IPL 2021.
