The Indian Premier League (IPL) is all set to get underway as the annual sporting extravaganza is set to have a grand homecoming albeit without crowds. The tournament was postponed and held in the UAE last year due to the raging COVID-19 pandemic. This time around, although the pandemic situation is more or less similar, adequate arrangements have been made to conduct the tournament in India.
Mumbai Indians (MI) are the defending champions and they would be out to do the ‘three-peat’. With such an excellent squad balance and depth, they would once again be overwhelming favorites to retain the title and the other teams would want to stop them. The first match that MI play against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will be expected to set the tone for the entire tournament as two months of non-stop entertainment await.
