After two years of long break, IPL will be coming back to home ground as the pandemic forced IPL 2020 to be shifted to UAE. For the benefit of players & staff, the fixtures are planned in such a way that each team will have to travel only three times during league stage, which will in turn reduce the risk of infection. Also, the matches in the beginning will be played without any spectators & the call to sell the tickets will be taken on a later stage.

1. How many matches will be in IPL 2021?

In total, there will be 56 league matches across 6 cities. Every team will play four venues during the league stage. The major highlight of this edition is that no team will be playing on homeground, both the teams in every match will be played at the neutral ground. In case of timings, afternoon matches will start at 3.30 PM & evening matches will start at 7.30 PM

2. IPL 2021 Format

Adding on to this, the new schedule & format has left some franchise unhappy with the decision. Some of them have presented a counter argument that some players of certain states in some teams might be at an advantage playing at certain venues. For example, Some players from Delhi capital like Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane & captain Shreyas Iyer will be in advantage when their matches will be played in Mumbai. The argument is still going on but officials also believe that this IPL format is much safer for the players & the staff.
