The Indian Premier League (IPL) is back after a brief hiatus, and begins its second leg in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with a bang as powerhouses Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) lock horns on Sunday.
The showdown between CSK and MI, who share eight IPL titles between them, will mark the beginning of a packed second half of the tournament that had to be suspended in May earlier this year after the bio-secure bubble in India was breached during the devastating second COVID-19 wave in the country.
Both CSK and MI find themselves in contention for the playoffs, which begin on 10 October with the final taking place five days later at the Dubai International Stadium. Chennai find themselves second on the points table, bouncing back with a strong display after finishing second from bottom last season, while Mumbai have recovered from a slow start to sit fourth on the table with eight points.
The tournament will also serve as a platform for players to prepare themselves for the ICC T20 World Cup that is hosted by the UAE and Oman right after the conclusion of IPL 2021. Like the IPL, the World Cup too had to be shifted out of India due to fears of a possible third COVID-19 wave in the country in the months of October and November.
