It is finally that time of year when the whole country will be glued to the screens, watching India’s favorite sport in its T20 form. Students will sneak a look at the scores during their classes while employees will quickly check the runs and wickets during work. The love for cricket in our country brought this season back again. In the pandemic, where most of the people are in their homes, from many previous months, this tournament is a light breeze full of excitement and entertainment. It is the season of IPL T20!
IPL 2021 starts in the second week of April and we couldn’t be more hyped. Last year, the tournament took place in UAE but the league has come home this year. If this was the period before the pandemic, we would be able to go to stadiums to see our favorite team play. We would shop for the official IPL merchandise with our friends. This could’ve been the time when even the gully cricket flourished, the cricket fever spreading, people would play more during the tournament, trying to ball like Jasprit Bumrah or perform a helicopter shot like MSD. Now isn’t the same time, we are stuck inside our homes with our friends far away from us. There are things you can do this season from your home which will help you enjoy your game to the fullest –
