It has been more than four months since the stadium lights last turned on for the 2021 IPL season, but this weekend the world’s most popular limited-overs cricket tournament returns to end the season.

Now staged in the United Arab Emirates and probably acting as a dry run for the world’s greatest short form cricketers as they prepare for the T20 World Cup, starting next month and also playing out of the United Arab Emirates, the conclusion of IPL 2021 will be like no other.

IPL season 2021: Where we left off

It was an electrifying start to the 2021 campaign for the Delhi Capitals, scoring six of eight wins. Shikhar Dhawan certainly helped, setting the pace for the entire tournament with 380 runs at a clip of 66.20 and a strike rate of 136.21.

Where are the IPL stars?

This is the IPL, so each team is stacked. However, with Test cricket during the IPL break, a looming T20 World Cup and inevitable injuries, not all of cricket’s brightest stars will return.

A short list of the biggest stars missing from the rest of the tournament:

  • Pat Cummins (Kolkata / Australia)
  • Jos Buttler (Rajasthan / England)
  • Adam Zampa (RCB / Australia)
  • Riley Meredith (Punjab / Australia)
  • Daniel Sams (RCB / Australia)
  • Jofra Archer (Rajasthan / England)
  • Ben Stokes (Rajasthan / England)
  • Jonny Bairstow (Sunrisers / England)
  • Chris Woakes (Delhi / England)
  • Dawid Molan (Rajasthan / England)

Will players have to quarantine themselves?

All players were required to undergo six days of quarantine upon arrival in the UAE.

Will supporters be allowed to enter the stadiums?

For the first time since 2019, fans will be allowed to enter IPL stadiums, defending champions Mumbai Indians take on the Chennai Super Kings at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, the first chance for fans.

“This match will be a momentous occasion as IPL will welcome fans to the stadiums after a brief hiatus due to the COVID-19 situation,” an IPL statement said.

“The matches will be played in Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi with a limited number of places available keeping in mind COVID protocols and UAE government regulations.”
