IPL 2021 will soon entertain Indian cricket fans. The 14th edition of the tournament will start next month with the first match between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore. The match will be played at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. IPL 2021 consists of 56 matches during group stages and 4 matches during playoffs. All the matches will be played at six venues across the country. They are Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai and Ahmadabad.
All the teams will play at a neutral venue in each match so no team will get the home advantage in IPL 2021. Due to Covid-19 concerns, spectators will not be allowed inside the stadium for the initial games. However, a decision on the matter will be taken later during the tournament by BCCI. The playoffs and the final match will be played at Narendra Modi cricket stadium in Ahmadabad. The tournament will conclude with the final match on May 30, 2021.
Due to less overs and aggressive batting style in IPL, bowlers have a tough job to do. Bowlers have only four overs in a match and they have to give their best. Hence, they have a lot of pressure. It is a tough job to take wickets in just a four overs spell, and an even tougher job to concede less runs. As IPL 2021 takes a countdown, here we look at 5 bowlers with the best bowling average in the Indian Premier League.
