The Indian Premier League is set to be back for its next edition from April 9. After relocating the tournament to the United Arab Emirates last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the cash-rich league will be held in India again.
The season is slated to kick off with defending champions Mumbai Indians taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai. All the matches will take place at five venues — Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi, Ahmedabad, and Bangalore. The final of the tournament will be played in Ahmedabad on May 29th.
South Africa’s Chris Morris became the most expensive signing in IPL history when Rajasthan Royals shelled out Rs 16.25 crores for the all-rounder.
New Zealand’s Kyle Jamieson and Australia’s Jhye Richardson were signed by Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab Kings respectively for record prices.
On the other hand, K Gowtham became the highest-earning uncapped player in IPL auction history after Chennai Super Kings signed him for Rs 9.25 crore.
