About 2021 IPL SCHEDULE latest news 2021
Have you all wondered which religion I am talking about here? It is not the lord almighty or about their incarnations. I am here to discuss the religion of India that binds together all national citizens under one roof.
Without wasting much time, let me come to the point. That religion is cricket. I am sure you all know why cricket is termed as religion. The religion word has a great significance in Indian society. Hence, when we are referring to this as a religion, we mean the passion and dedication the Indians have towards these games.
Whichever corner of the nation, we shall visit. One Sachin Tendulkar or Glenn Macgrath is at every corner.
Probably the major reason behind this is the fact that these talents get completely overshadowed by the light of affluent people.
IPL 2021 Start Date
Indian Premier League carnival is just around the corner. It is commencing on the 9th of April within India itself.
But depending on COVID-19, nobody is sure. There might be chances of a change of venue from India to UAE. But chances are pity rare due to the decline of COVID cases during recent times.
The best thing about IPL is that it gives chances to everyone.
Perhaps, that is the beauty of this cricket mega festival. It has everything that the spectator wants. Glamour, entertainment, and more.
when IPL auction 2021 start
The 14th season date of IPL auction 2021 has already been undertaken on the 18th of February where all eight teams participated. Among these, a total of 57 players were sold in an auction.
The reason why Chris Morris being the most expensive buy-in IPL 2021?
What surprised me most was the interest by top franchises in buying South African All-rounder Chris Morris at the IPL auction 2021. Bought for mighty 16.25 Crore in this season hence becoming the most expensive buy till now at any season of IPL. He was bought by Rajasthan Royals.
But the question is why Chris Morris who isn’t as big a name as Pat Cummins and Yuvraj Singh but still bagged with such a whopping amount. There lie certain key reasons. To know more in deep visit IPL official website IPL 2021 Auction
Since the evolution of Indian cricket, batsmen and slow bowlers have dominated this game. Going back to history, when bowlers like BS Chandrashekhar and Anil Kumble were the main spearheads. But from Indian perspective, you would hardly hear the premium fast bowlers in this list. Kapil Dev and Zaheer Khan were there no doubt, but there’s caliber can’t be matched with the greats like Glenn Macgrath and Dale Steyn.
Hence, when we talk about mega tournaments like IPL where we could bet on any overseas player. The significance of overseas fast bowlers bags huge demand.
Also, nowadays cricket is all henpecked with destructive batsmen amidst the fast-growing cricketing arena. The best of best bowlers are also been smashed to all parks. Liberty for bowlers has somehow diminished.
Therefore, there lies a huge demand for a fast-bowling allrounder who can not only bolster the stumps but also contribute to his team with some healthy runs down the order. In IPL auction 2021, there was somehow the scarcity of such quality fast bowling allrounders. But Chris Morris is perhaps the only cricketer in this list other than Andre Russel with a healthy strike rate of approximately 157% in IPL. Only six players have a better strike rate than this. Plus, Chris Morris also performed better in the concluded tournaments before.
Now I guess the picture is clear.
