06.50 pm: Hello all and welcome to our live coverage of IPL 2021. The action restarts in the 14th edition of the tournament. When Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians met in the IPL 2021 for the first time, it was one of the last few matches to take place before the tournament came to a halt due to Covid-19 cases being reported in the bubble. And, with Dubai as the setting, we are here for the restart of the tournament.
IPL 2021 resumes in United Arab Emirates in front of spectators, but without a host of top international stars after four months of pandemic suspension.
Fans will be in the stands for the first time in two years when Rohit Sharma’s title-holders, Mumbai Indians, take on Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings in Dubai to restart the high-octane Twenty20 competition.
