The 13th season of the Indian Premier League is over.

Sourav Ganguly had informed India Today that IPL 2021 was likely to be scheduled in April-May. The franchises have raised a few questions related to next players' auction with some anxious about the quality of squads if 10 teams will play IPL 2021 in place of usual 8 teams.

The IPL made a strong start to its 2020 season when a record 200 million viewers tuned in for the opening match between the Chennai Super Kings and eventual tournament winners the Mumbai Indians.

BUOYED by the resounding success of the "special edition" of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced it readiness to host the 2021 edition of the ICC T20 World Cup next October-November. The Times of India reports that the organisation would need to check if its current deal accounts for increasing the number of games to 76, should the IPL add one more team, or 91, if the leagues adds two teams. Plans of hosting a mega IPL players auctions for IPL 2021 have also emerged with reports stating the board have already asked the eight teams to prepare for a big players auction for next season.

As we finally get over the IPL season that lasted for a little less than two months, there are still some interesting details about it that might have gone unnoticed.

"We knew people were hungry for IPL and would consume it but we were not sure how much would be the appetite from the advertisers".

This was Mumbai Indians' second consecutive IPL title - they had looked like the strongest team in this edition and deservingly won the crown.

There is also news about the 9th team of IPL 2021 that famous actor of South Films Mohanlal is going to bid for the new team joining the IPL. Soon after, it was reported that the board is also planning for a mega auction. There is a possibility that the tournament could be held in UAE again if the pandemic situation in India does not improve.
