Published : Apr 10, 2021 4 mins read Updated On : Jul 27, 2022

The Indian Premier League, 2021 is all set to begin from 9th April. For the next two months, every Indian will be glued to their TV set in the evening and enjoy their cricketing superstars put up an absolute entertainment of a tournament which will make all of us stay safe at home, free of the outside threat and happily enjoy IPL.

Indian Premiere League 2021

IPL being the best T20 tournament in the world is enough of a reason to watch it and yet, here are 14 exciting reasons that make this year's tournament a must-watch -

14. IPL is back on Indian shores

IPL 2020 was completely shifted to UAE due to the covid-19 threat. But now IPL 2021 will be played entirely in India with strict measures taken to ensure the health, safety and security of all those associated with the tournament.

13. MI to go for Hat-trick

The most successful franchise, Mumbai Indians have won the last two editions of the Indian Premier League and this year too are hot favorites to lift the trophy to complete the treble. The core of MI is still intact and has all the bases covered for the Hat-trick.

12. Pant the Captain or the Commentator?

The young Indian wicket-keeper is in the middle of his purple patch and is now also been rewarded with the responsibility of leading Delhi Capitals in the absence of their regular captain Shreyas Iyer. It will be interesting to see which Pant entertains us more - The Captain or The Commentator.

11. The return of Bahubali Bhuvi

Bhuvaneshwar has been the leader of the pack for SRH for the past many seasons and has also been the most successful Indian fast bowler. However, he missed the majority of the tournament last year due to injury but will be back this year and raring to go at the batsmen with his accurate yorkers and slower-ones.

10. The Max Show joins Kohli-AB

The Kohli-AB partnership has been the heart and soul of the team and every RCB fan. This year the duo will be hoping to get huge support from the Big Show - Glenn Maxwell in their quest for maiden IPL title. The Max factor can be the missing piece of Rcb's batting puzzle.

9. Mayank to flourish for Kings

Mayank Agarwal can be a real threat to all the opposition team as the Punjab franchise has a solid top-order powered by Rahul, Gayle and Pooran with Mayank. Mayank can benefit from the fact that KL will open with him and together both can do wonders as they did last year by providing blistering starts.

8. DK’s Last Chance

Dinesh Kartik has been one of the finest wicket-keeper in the tournament leading the most dismissal charts for many years. With young keepers raising their stock at a fast pace, this season can very well be the last chance for the veteran to push for one last chance to get back into the Indian Team and play the T20 World Cup later this year.

7. One more Whistle-Podu for Chinna Thala & Thala

CSK and Dhoni badly missed Suresh Raina last year. The swash-buckling left-hander has been a legend of the tournament and has scored the most runs for his franchise. Lifting the trophy once more will be a perfect bounce back for the CSK side and they now have Dhoni’s most trusted ally for another Whistle-Podu.

6. Millionaire Morris to RR’s Rescue

Chris Morris became the most expensive player in the history of IPL when he was bought by the Rajasthan Royal for a mammoth 16.25 Cr. Jofra’s untimely injury is a big blow to RR but thankfully they now have Morris who can easily become their bowling attack leader and add to that his batting which makes him a lethal all-rounder.

5. Small Auction, Big Money

This year’s IPL auction saw teams going all out for the players they wanted in their team and broke many auction records. RR bid the highest for Morris, RCB broke the bank for Maxwell and Jameison, Punjab went berserk for Richardson and Meredith and CSK went for Moeen and Gowtham. Every team will hope that their big-ticket buys can cope with the pressure of money and perform the best for their respective sides.

4. Indian Wicket Keepers at Helm!

For the first time in IPL’s history, we will see 4 Indian Wicket-keepers leading their side. While MSD has been the charismatic captain for CSK since the inception, his student-like Rishabh Pant will be leading Delhi Capitals, KL Rahul and Sanju Samson will the captains of Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals respectively.

3. No Home Matches

One of the biggest news that took everyone by surprise was that no team will be able to play even a single match at their home grounds. While the format of home and away stays, no team will get the home advantage. The IPL caravan will keep moving from one city to another and all the matches will be played in 6 cities – Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Delhi, Kolkata and Ahmedabad with Hyderabad and Indore being on stand-by.

2. T20 World Cup Preparation

The IPL 2021 will be like a big audition for all those who want to make a strong case to get into the national team which will take part in the T20 World Cup scheduled to happen this year in India. The cricketing boards all over the world will keep their eye on IPL and analyze the performance of each player taking part to make sure that they send the best players to represent their country and to be crowned as World Champions.

1. Pure Cricketing Entertainment

One of the major reason of Indian Premier League is so successful and loved by people all over is quality of cricket played in the tournament is top-notch. It also provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to many young Indian as well as foreign players to show the world what they got. The cricket played throughout the tournament is quite exciting and most matches have a nail-biting climax.
