IPL 2021 tickets

IPL has finally opened doors to audiences this year after uplifting 2020’s restrictions due to the pandemic.
Interested parties can either purchase the tickets manually from the stadium or book online through BookMyShow, Insider.in, TicketGenie, EventsNow and Paytm.

Key Players

Mumbai Indians

  • Hardik Pandya – Doing absolute justice to the term ‘All- Rounder’, Hardik Pandya is both a hard hitter and fast bowler. The most notable skill of this exuberant, confident man though, is the way he soars under pressure.
  • Jasprit Bumrah – Discovered by John Wright and led by the mad scientist of cricket, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah’s Yorkers are both a sight to watch and watch out for.
  • Kieron Pollard – The man has left us no space for doubt. With 420 runs and 10 wickets from 18 matches in 2013 IPL, 419 runs with an S/R of 163.67 and 41 from just 17 balls in the qualifier followed by 36 from 18 balls in the final, he’s the rock Mumbai Indians pull out for a banging finish.
  • Rohit Sharma – The first batsman to strike two double centuries in the ODIs, played an integral role in his former team, Deccan chargers, winning the title in 2009. He has had his hands around the coveted trophy five times and made some of the best IPL scores in the process. But no statistics come close to translating the grace and elegance this man unveils on the pitch.
  • Krunal Pandya – Often overshadowed by the other more famous sibling, the other half of the Pandya duo also has quite a few tricks in his bag. Capable of putting in all-rounder performances, Krunal is a certain starter and one of Mumbai Indians’ most complete players.
  • Chris Lynn – Many batsmen command respect, but there are only a few who summon fear. This fierce batsman is an attacker all the way.

Chennai Super Kings

ipl 2018 tickets dhoni

  • Dwayne Bravo – ‘Caribbean swagger’ is a word thrown around quite frequently while describing this powerhouse batsman, well-paced bowler and most knowledgeable player of IPL know-how’s.
  • Shane Robers Watson – This all-rounder can attack the ball, defend in grace, field, as well as bowl. With over 100 games of experience in the league, it’s only natural that CSK is counting on him for some firepower.
  • Imran Tahir – This bowler shot to number one position after picking 18 wickets in a single season of IPL score and is adored for his customary sprint after a wicket and extremely positive attitude.
  • MS Dhoni – A wicketkeeper and batting powerhouse most applauded for his tactical game that only seems to get stronger in the face of adversity, Dhoni has led Chennai Super Kings to two victories in 2010 and 2011 and four runner-up finishes.
  • Ambati Rayudu – Rayudu is on course to cement a spot in India’s World Cup starting lineup. Crowned as IPL 2018’s highest run scorer with 602 runs (century) in 16 innings, Rayadu is tipped to replicate 2019’s success in the yellow jersey!

Sunrisers Hyderabad

  • Rashid Khan – This 18-year-old ‘million-dollar baby’ claimed 11 wickets in 7 matches in Twenty20 2016. With a movie worthy backstory from war-torn Afghanistan, to winning the big bucks in IPL auctions, Rashid’s is journey is one that many are counting on.
  • David Warner – This time around, Warner will be looking to reclaim his former glory of being the most successful overseas batsmen in the IPL cricket fandom. The Australian batsman has reclaimed captaincy and will be looking to start this season on the right foot.

Kolkata Knight Riders

  • Brendon McCullum – A part of IPL since its inception, Brendon has previously played for Kochi Tuskers, CSK, RCB and Gujarat Lions. He will now be bringing back his wicketkeeping and explosive batting to KKR.
  • Dinesh Karthik – His middle order and top order exploits are something to watch out for. With ample experience and skill behind the stumps and with the bat, Dinesh Karthik brings a unique and rare mix to the team.
  • Sunil Narine – One of the most integral players of the KKR squad, with a purple cap ruling and stunning break bowling. Not only is he an excellent wicketkeeper, but Narine can also be pretty explosive with the bat.

Kings XI Punjab

  • KL Rahul – Discovered through a tremendous performance in the Karnataka Premier League, KL Rahul is a player India has consistently had high expectations from and one that has yet never disappointed. This 28-year-old batsman and the winner of the 2020 Orange Cap still has a lot more to offer.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin – Finishing 2015 as ICC’s top-ranked bowler and the No. 1 ranked Test all-rounder, for the second time in three years, Ashwin is a player to watch out for. He captained Kings XI Punjab in the previous season.
  • Chris Gayle – Chris Gayle is one of the most loved players of the IPL. His powerful strikes and thumping shots may just be what Punjab Kings need if they intend to challenge for the title.
  • Glenn Maxwell – A phenomenal fielder and an off-spinner, Maxwell delivered his best with David Millers for Kings XI Punjab, and has rejoined the team this season.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

ipl 2018 tickets ab

  • Umesh Yadav – Son of a coal miner and an aspiring Police officer, Umesh Yadav’s most striking feature is his physical prowess. A fast bowler and batsman, this ‘stongman’ already has more than 100 wickets from ODIs and is an IPL score.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal – This Haryana born was first discovered when he took 34 wickets in a U-19 match and has served as India’s permanent wrist spinner ever since.
  • AB De Villiers – A ‘360 degrees’ batsman, Villers can switch from classic batting to innovative strokes within seconds. The second player to be retained ahead of the player auction, he has delivered ‘the most power-packed knock’ in 2012 against Dake Steyn, for RCB.
  • Virat Kohli – Ranked no.1 in ODIs, No.2 in Test Cricket, and No.3 in T20Is, and the Indian Cricket Team’s captain, Kohli is an aggressive player and does not apologize for it.

  • Shikhar Dhawan – His agile fielding skills and powerful batting make a perfect pick for IPL. Have had previously played for Delhi Daredevils, Mumbai Indians, Deccan Chargers, Sunrisers Hyderabad and proving his worth in each, Dhawan is a player you can count on.
  • Rishabh Pant – This IPL 2021 season brings new hope and expectations for Pant. The youngster will look to demonstrate why he’s been chosen as captain by firing the Capitals to glory his wicket keeping, batting and captaincy.
  • Ajinkya Rahane – This calm, patient and determined batsman has twice crossed the 500-run mark during his tenure with IPL. He is all set to enrich the squad with his game prowess.

Rajasthan Royals

  • Ben Stokes – A player best defined as the effective fast bowler and destructive batsman, this English player was born in New Zealand and was bought at a record price of 14.5 crores in 2008 by Rising Pune Supergiant.
  • Jaydev Unadkat – Putting his best foot forward for the Rising Pune Supergiant in 2017, Jaydev claimed 24 wickets from 12 matches. This left-arm pacer from Saurashtra is a key player for Rajasthan Royals this year and is expected to defend some of the batsmen to make the best IPL score.
  • Jofra Archer – With a promising first two seasons in the IPL franchise with an impressive performance with the ball, this all-rounder will hope to recreate some of the same magic this IPL 2021.

Top Hat-tricks
  • Ajith Chandila – Rajasthan Royals v Pune Warriors – 2012
    Dismissing Jesse Ryder, Sourav Ganguly, and Robin Uthappa, the “mystery spinner” delivered a comfortable 45 run win for his team keeping his team’s qualification hopes alive on this critical game in 2012.
  • Sunil Narine – Kolkata Knight Riders v Kings XI Punjab – 2013
    This brilliant hat-trick shot the unfavorable 96 for 3 into a quick 99 for 6 way into the 15th over knocking off the stumps for David Hussey, Azhar Mahmood, Gurkeerat Singh. This couldn’t give the team it’s much-needed win, but it was sure quite a watch.
  • Pravin Tambe – Royals v Knight Riders – 2014
    In a game that depended on 49 runs in the last five overs, PravinThanbe turned the game around dismissing Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, and Ryan Ten.
  • Amit Mishra – Delhi Daredevils (Now Delhi Capitals) v Deccan Chargers – 2008
    Only the first of his three hat-tricks of IPL from the very season, Amit Mishra claimed Ravi Teja, RP Singh and Pragyan Ojha’s wickets destroying whatever little chance the Deccan Chargers had of a victory and sent back batsmen that were expected to make the highest IPL score. His hat trick journey didn’t stop there, he took his second hat trick in 2011 and in 2013 he had his third hat trick. He is the only bowler who has a record of three hat tricks in the IPL history.
  • Andrew Tye – Gujarat Lions VS Rising Pune Super Giant – 2017
    Bowling Ankit Sharma, Manoj Tiwari and Shardul Thakur off the pitch, Andrew Tye awarded the Gujarat Lions a comfortable win by 7 wickets and himself an ideal IPL debut.

Controversies

ipl 2018 tickets cheerleaders

Like any entertainment industry, IPL too has stirred up controversies. Some, however, got so juicy, they dominated the Indian media for months and were spoken about much more than the highest bids or IPL score. Here are a few top picks:

Slapsgiving 2008: All seemed calm as the players were shaking hands in the healthy spirit of sportsmanship after Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab match until Harbhajan slapped Sreesanth. Much was said and heard about the incident, although the actual reason for the outburst remains unknown.

The Dean Gets Expelled: IPL was considered to be Lalit Modi’s brainchild, winning him praise and appreciation for bringing India’s favorite game in a brand new package. When a BCCI set up a disciplinary committee that found Lalit Modi guilty of rigging bids, it ended with him being expelled and banned from working on any project involving cricket.

Spot Fixing: Three players from Rajasthan Royals – Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan, and Ajit Chandila were arrested for allegedly being involved in spot-fixing. It led to the suspension of all three players and an eventual ban in 2013.

Tearleaders: South African Cheerleader Gabriella Pasqualotto started speaking up on the internet about the misdemeanor and inappropriate relations between cricketers and cheerleaders. Soon after the blogs started to garner attention, she was sacked and sent back home.
