The 2021 Indian Premier League season was suspended indefinitely back in May amid the country’s mounting Covid crisis.

There were fears this year’s competition could be cancelled altogether, but it has now been confirmed that it will go ahead in the United Arab Emirates later this month.

Defending champions Mumbai Indians will open the 2021 IPL on Sunday 19 September when they take on 2018 winners Chennai Super Kings.

And that kicks off a month of non-stop cricket as eight teams compete for a place in the final on Friday 15 October.

Here is a full list of the 2021 Indian Premier League fixtures.
