IPL 2021 new schedule is here. IPL 2021 will begin from September 19 and the final of IPL 2021 will take place on October 10. The remaining 31 matches of IPL 2021 will be split into  10 double headers, 7 single headers, and 4 playoffs, which will be fit into the 21-day window the BCCI hopes to create before the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.

In this article, we will let you know about the updated IPL 2021 schedule, new dates and new venues, points table, Orange cap, timetable, and team list after the suspension of the 14th edition of the league. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is eyeing the September-October window to conduct the remaining 31 matches of the IPL 2021, which was suspended earlier in May following a covid-19 outbreak in players and staff, in the UAE.

IPL 2021 began with a bang on April 09 this year as two giants of the competition, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI) locked horns in the opening fixture at Chennai.

Then began the caravan of the most-loved cricket tournament in the world, the Indian Premier League. Looking at the worse COVID scenario, all the games took place behind closed doors and the teams were all a part of the bio-bubble. However, the BCCI faced a massive blow as several players of different teams started testing positive for COVID-19 and the tournament had to be suspended indefinitely.

When IPL 2021 came to a standstill, the league had already witnessed 29 breath-taking games of cricket. Now, there is a dilemma as to when IPL 2021 will resume and in this article, we will provide you with the best possible details available at the moment.

IPL 2021 Schedule

As far as the IPL 2021 schedule is concerned, the tournament was originally slated to take place between April 09-May 30 this year. The first game of the tournament, as already mentioned, took place between RCB and MI, and the entire playoffs and the final of the tournament was scheduled to take place at the newly-built Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

IPL 2021 New Dates And New Venues

However, after 29 games, the tournament had to be suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak and thus, the IPL 2021 schedule will have to be restructured. Immediately after BCCI suspended the IPL, the IPL Governing Council Chairman, Mr. Brijesh Patel, said that IPL 2021 isn’t completely finished and the BCCI is looking to conduct the tournament before the ICC T20 World Cup this year.

BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has made it clear that the tournament will not resume in India for sure. However, he has also given positive indications in regards to the IPL 2021 schedule. He has asserted that the BCCI is in talks with other cricket boards and the International Cricket Council (ICC) to find a window and resume the tournament away from India.

IPL 2021 New Dates Slot: When Will IPL 2021 Resume?

Slot 1 (September)- The first slot that is available for the BCCI to resume the tournament is in the month of September. However, England, New Zealand, South Africa, and Afghanistan have got all their calendars packed during this window. This leaves only Australian and West Indian players available in the September window for the BCCI to resume IPL 2021.

Slot 2 (November)- The second slot that the BCCI can look forward to continuing the IPL this year is in the November window after the completion of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. As per the tentative schedule, the ICC T220 World Cup will take place from October 18 to November 15 and thus, the BCCI can look to conduct the tournament after the tournament.

IPL 2021 New Possible Venues:

BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has made it clear that the resumption of IPL 2021 can’t take place in India. Hence, it is now clear that the tournament will have to be shifted to another country. The Indian Cricket Team will fly to England in June for the ICC World Test Championship final and a five-match Test series against England which will end in the month of August.

Venue 1 (England)- As the English, New Zealand, and Indian players will be in England from the month of June, England could be a suitable venue for the BCCI to conduct the tournament. Notably, a few English counties had also written a letter to the BCCI via ECB in the same regard.

Venue 2 (UAE)- As the COVID-19 pandemic in India surged in 2020, the 13th edition of IPL, IPL 2020 had to be moved to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The tournament in UAE was a massive success as the authorities were able to ensure that no player or support staff came in contact with the coronavirus. Hence, it could be a very safe option for BCCI to conduct the tournament in UAE.

Venue 3 (Sri Lanka)- Sri Lanka Cricket had offered to host the remainder of IPL 2021 in their country. BCCI has also informed that a second-string Indian team will be in Sri Lanka in the month of July to play a three-match ODI and a three-match T20I series.

IPL 2021 Points Table

The IPL 2021 points table saw a topsy-turvy ride throughout the competition this year. At the time when IPL 2021 came to a standstill, Delhi Capitals (DC) were on the absolute summit of the IPL 2021 points table with 12 points having won 6 out of the 8 games that they played so far in this season. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) were on the second spot in the IPL 2021 points table with 10 points, having won 5 out of the 7 games they played so far.

RCB took the third spot with 10 points after winning 5 out of the 7 games. MI were on the fourth spot with 4 wins in the 7 games and 8 points. Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) took the 5th and 6th spot respectively in the IPL 2021 points table with 3 wins in the tournament. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) acquired the second last spot with just 2 wins in the 7 games. SunRisers Hyderabad were on the rock bottom of the IPL 2021 points table with just 1 win in the 7 games they played thus far.

Here is the tabular representation of the IPL 2021 points table:

IPL 2021 Orange Cap

The IPL 2021 Orange Cap race was also as ignited as the tournament itself in the first 29 games that were played. Batsmen once again stole the show this year with some breath-taking hitting all over the parks. As IPL 2021 was postponed, Shikhar Dhawan had the IPL 2021 Orange Cap with 380 runs in the 8 games that he played for Delhi Capitals. KL Rahul was second on this list with 331 runs in 7 games for PBKS.

Faf du Plessis had a spectacular run of form in this year’s IPL and he was on the third spot in the IPL 2021 Orange Cap race as he smashed 320 runs in 7 games for Chennai Super Kings. Prithvi Shaw took the fourth spot with 308 runs in 8 matches of IPL 2021. He was followed by Sanju Samson on the 5th spot with 277 runs in 7 matches. Mayank Agarwal took the 6th spot with 260 runs in 7 matches.

Jos Buttler was at the 7th spot with 254 runs in 7 matches, including that scintillating century against SunRisers Hyderabad. Rohit Sharma acquired the 8th spot with 250 runs in 7 games for Mumbai Indians. The last two spots in the top 10 list of the IPL 2021 Orange Cap were filled by Jonny Bairstow and Glenn Maxwell respectively who had scored 248 and 233 runs in the 7 matches they were a part of.

Here’s how the updated IPL 2021 Orange Cap table looks like:

IPL 2021 Time Table

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is working on a fresh timetable for IPL 2021. The tournament had to be called off as members of Kolkata Knight Riders, Delhi Capitals, Chennai Super Kings, and SunRisers Hyderabad tested positive for COVID-19. After the suspension, there have been multiple reports stating that a new timetable is being formed for the continuation of IPL 2021.

The IPL 2021 timetable will be released in accordance with the International Cricket Council (ICC) Future Tours Program (FTP). As of now, the India National Cricket Team is all set to take on New Zealand in the final of the ICC World Test Championship (WTC). The match will be held at Southampton from June 18- June 22.

After this, a second-string Indian team will take on Sri Lanka away from home in a tour that will comprise of 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is. Meanwhile, the first-string team will play a five-match Test series against England in England from August 04 to September 14. Thus, the IPL 2021 Time Table will now be prepared to keep in mind the future tours that world cricket will be involved in.

IPL 2021 Team List

A total of 8 teams were contesting in IPL 2021 this year. MS Dhoni took charge of the proceedings once again for Chennai Super Kings as they hunted their 4th IPL title. Delhi Capitals was being led by Rishabh Pant, as their regular skipper, Shreyas Iyer, suffered a dislocated shoulder in the series against England, prior to this year’s IPL and was ruled out of the tournament.

Eoin Morgan was once again given the responsibility of leading Kolkata Knight Riders after he took over the captaincy from Dinesh Karthik in IPL 2020 last year. Mumbai Indians gave the baton to Rohit Sharma, the most successful captain in the history of IPL, to lead the side once again as they roared for their 6th IPL title. KL Rahul led the Punjab Kings and he led the side from the front, much like last year as he top-scored for the team.

Rajasthan Royals entrusted Sanju Samson with their captaincy choice after a massive turnaround in the team this year. Rajasthan had to deal with a lot of injury blows and their overseas contingent shrank with each day passing by. Jofra Archer was ruled out of IPL 2021 even before the tournament began and Ben Stokes was ruled out due to an injury, right after the first game. Liam Livingstone flew back home citing bubble fatigue, leaving the Rajasthan-based franchise midway.

Royal Challengers Bangalore once again went ahead with Virat Kohli as the skipper of their side and Virat produced fantastic results for the team. For the first time in their IPL history, RCB won the opening four games on the trot in IPL 2021. Their first defeat of the tournament came against Chennai Super Kings in their fifth match and when the tournament came to a halt, RCB were on the 3rd spot in the IPL 2021 points table.

SunRisers Hyderabad had one of the poorest starts to an IPL season this year as they lost 5 out of their opening 6 fixtures. After this, the SRH management took a harsh call by stripping David Warner off the captaincy before their 7th game of IPL 2021 and handing it over to Kane Williamson. Warner was even made to sit out in the game against Rajasthan Royals, which received a lot of backlash from the fans.

Below are the squads of all the 8 IPL teams that contested in IPL 2021:

IPL 2021 Latest Update

The Australian and West Indies players might be available to contest in IPL 2021 if the tournament resumes in September. Apart from these 2 teams, every other side has their schedule packed prior to the ICC T20 World Cup and hence, it might be a troublesome situation for the BCCI to resume the competition.

Rajasthan Royals owner Manoj Badale on Thursday said that rescheduling the postponed Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 will be a real challenge as most teams have already locked in their international calendars. Earlier, Ashley Giles, the managing director of the England men’s team, had hinted that the English players might not be available for the remainder of this edition of the IPL if it gets rescheduled for sometime later this year.

Jofra Archer has expressed his willingness to play in IPL 2021 if IPL 2021 is rescheduled. Notably, Archer had missed out on the first half of the season due to an injury that he sustained in the India-England series. Archer had to return to the UK for a surgery and hence, he had pulled out of IPL 2021.
