Previously, when the name of these six cities was discussed as hosts of IPL 2021, Punjab and Hyderabad owners were vocal about their discontent with BCCI’s decision. But after prolonged discussion, the afore-mentioned cities have now been made official venues of this edition of the Indian Premier League.
After analyzing the IPL 2021 schedule, we can observe the introduction of a new format. Not a single franchise will play in their home ground. Each team will play their matches in different venues throughout the IPL 2021. As a result, the team will fail to gain any home advantage being not able to play IPL live in home conditions. Perhaps this could be a relief for the Punjab and Hyderabad franchisee who was not happy as their stadiums were not considered as venues for holding IPL 2021.
The knockout IPL 2021 schedule is also released. All the knock-out games will be played in Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
