Mumbai Indians and CSK have reached UAE for IPL 2021.

The 14th season, which was postponed in May this year in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, will resume on September 19 with the blockbuster clash between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians in Dubai.

The action will then shift to Abu Dhabi where Kolkata Knight Riders will play against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Sharjah will host its first game on September 24 when Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Chennai Super Kings. A total of 13 matches will be held in Dubai, 10 in Sharjah and 8 in Abu Dhabi.

The BCCI has decided to do away with the contact tracing device for the UAE leg. The Indian Board decided that if a player tests positive for COVID-19 in the UAE, then the Bubble Integrity Officer will do the necessary contact tracing.

The board has come up with a 46-page health advisory that lays out the points that all those associated with the IPL should follow to ensure smooth functioning of the league.
