For the first time last year, Chennai and Mumbai both failed to qualify for the play-offs. Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans won the trophy in the last season of the ongoing IPL series since 2008.
In this case, this 16th IPL series will start on March 31. 10 teams are participating in this series. The first match will start at Ahmedabad on March 31 at 7.30 pm. In this match, Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings will face Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans. The final will be held on May 21.
A total of 70 matches will be held in 12 stadiums. For the past 3 years no team has played at their home ground due to the corona virus. But this year each team will play 7 matches in their own state stadium and 7 matches in other stadiums.
