The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has officially announced that the remaining matches of IPL 2021, which is the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League, will be played between September and October in the UAE.
While franchises will soon get their players ready, it is a good time for fans to get back into legal cricket betting at indiabetting.co.in where they can try their luck and skills.
It can be recalled that IPL 14 has been an unfinished business after the second wave of Covid-19 devastated India, leading to the suspension of the league on 4 May after 29 matches. The Indian Premier League itself was hit by fresh cases within the franchises, ground staff, and others involved in the tournament.
At a recently held special general body meeting that was conducted virtually, the BCCI came up with the decision to continue IPL 14 from where it was stopped.
The board has also decided to pursue an extension from the International Cricket Council (ICC) to take a suitable decision on conducting the men’s T20 World Cup, which was originally slated to be played between mid-October and November 2021 in India.
The second leg of IPL 14 will begin at Dubai on 19 September with the Chennai Super Kings taking on the Mumbai Indians in match no. 30.
The IPL 14 points table has Delhi Capitals in the first position with 12 points from eight matches. The Delhi Capitals have won six matches and lost two.
They are followed by the Chennai Super Kings with five wins from seven matches for 10 points and by the Royal Challengers Bangalore with exactly the same figures.
Sitting at the bottom of the IPL 2021 points table is the Sunrisers Hyderabad with just one win in seven matches. The Kolkata Knight Riders are slightly better than them with two wins in as many matches.
As far as stats are concerned, Shikhar Dhawan from Delhi Capitals holds the orange cap with 380 runs in eight innings with three fifties. Following him is Lokesh Rahul with 331 runs in seven innings with four fifties.
On the other hand, Harshal Patel, the medium pacer from Royal Challengers Bangalore, has the purple cap with 17 wickets in seven matches with a best of 5 for 27. South African pacer Chris Morris from Rajasthan Royals and fast bowler Avesh Khan from Delhi Capitals follow Harshal Patel with 14 wickets each.
