IPL 2021 will enthrall Indian cricket fans from next month. The tournament will kick-off with the first match between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore on April 9, 2021. The match will be played at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. There are six venues where IPL 2021 matches are scheduled to be played. Along with Chennai, Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi, Ahmadabad, and Bengaluru are the other venues for IPL 2021.

T20 format is considered a totally opposite format as that of Test. While T20 requires aggressive and quick batting, Test matches require patient and passive batting. In Tests, bowling dot balls or a maiden over is not a big deal. However, in the T20 format, dot balls and maiden overs are like an achievement for a bowler.

Since the Indian Premier League has a T20 format, aggressive batsmen and bowlers have a high value. However, some Test specialists have also managed to attract franchisees in IPL 2021. Here are 5 Test specialists who will be playing in IPL 2021.
