The 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) began on the 9th of April and three matches have been played. Each match produced the thrills and the spills one usually associates with the tournament as thrilling moments, sensational hitting and clever bowling were on display throughout. With the first full calendar week of the tournament beginning today, teams would want to wrest control and get off to a flyer.
This is exactly why the upcoming week would be extremely crucial for all teams. Heavyweight sides like Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad have already lost their respective first matches and hence, would want to spark a turnaround sooner rather than later. The victorious sides on the other hand would only want to pull away. Thus, a fascinating week of cricket awaits.
