As the IPL 2021 is nearing its end, it has been a wonderful journey amidst the coronavirus pandemic. IPL is known for entertaining the audience. All the teams stepped into the IPL with a notion of winning the trophy. After the sudden decision from the BCCI to schedule the tournament at a different venue, things changed lately.
Teams weren’t allowed to play in their hometown in the first leg. After the venue change to UAE in the second leg, this season attained its stability. Due to the new ground and different location, teams had to change their strategies. The slow pitch was not in favor of the batsmen. However, spinners were benefited by this condition.
This brought in a major hit in the performance for many teams and they couldn’t score their average runs. Few teams who were a prey to this slow pitch were Sunrisers Hyderabad, Punjab Kings, Mumbai Indians, and Rajasthan Royals.
Earlier, these teams were doing a great job in India. Mumbai Indians will look for redemption and dominate the upcoming IPL next season. According to the BCCI, two new teams will be added to this extended IPL family. Due to this reason, a mega auction will be conducted in the upcoming months of 2021.
