When the IPL 2021 started the venues across India in April 2021, the country was expecting the second wave of the COVID-19. The BCCI expected to hold the tournament due to a downward graph of COVID cases. However, once the tournament started, the situation with COVID got worse.
After taking the COVID tests, four players along with two coaches and several support staff received positive results. Therefore, the BCCI and IPL council put off the tournament on May 4. Until that moment, they already managed to play 29 games.

The discussions went really well and with ECB already giving us the oral nod to host the event ahead of the BCCI SGM, it was about closing the deal over the last week. The first game after the season resumes will be held on September 19 while we will have the final on October 15. The BCCI was always keen on a 25-day window to finish the remaining matches.– the official reported to ANI.
The teams still has 31 matches to play. It includes 3 playoff matches and the final match.
