New Delhi. The second phase of the Indian Premier League 2021 (IPL 2021) is going to start in the UAE from 18 September. Just as the fans got to see a wonderful game in the first phase, something similar is sure to be seen in the second phase. Like always in the Indian Premier League, this time also the players would like to perform well because on the basis of this their price is decided further. But this time IPL is also very important for another reason. In fact, just two days after the IPL final, the T20 World Cup will start, which will be held in the UAE itself. This means that the second phase of IPL 2021 is the biggest opportunity to directly prepare for the T20 World Cup.
Let us tell you that the players of Australia, New Zealand, England were not scheduled to participate in the second phase of IPL 2021, but as soon as this tournament shifted to UAE, players from all the teams started showing interest to participate in it. Especially the England Cricket Board and the Australian Cricket Board allowed their players to play in the IPL, whereas earlier these boards were reluctant. Actually the second phase of IPL 2021 is like a key to winning the T20 World Cup. Through the IPL, players will be able to understand the pitches of UAE before the T20 World Cup and will also be able to adapt to the atmosphere there. Now the question is, which team is going to benefit the most from IPL 2021.
West Indies will get the most benefit
If any team will get the most benefit of playing in IPL before T20 World Cup 2021, then it is West Indies. Many players from West Indies are going to play in this league. Especially talking about the important players of his playing XI, Dwayne Bravo, captain Kieron Pollard, Fabian Allen, Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer are part of this league. Not only this, now Evin Lewis has also become a part of Rajasthan Royals, for whom it can be very heavy for the opposing teams to mold themselves in the pitches of UAE.
Australia will also benefit
Some important players selected in Australia’s T20 World Cup team can also adapt themselves to the situation in the UAE from IPL 2021. In which Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Josh Hazlewood, Marcus Stoinis, Dan Christian are prominent. The difficult thing for Australia is that Pat Cummins is not playing in the UAE because he is about to become a father. Also, major players like Mitchell Starc, Aaron Finch are also not part of the IPL, due to which these players may have to suffer in the T20 World Cup.
Important bowlers of South Africa are playing IPL
The South African team may not have been as strong as before, but before the T20 World Cup, many of its important players can adapt themselves to the pitches of UAE. Especially when it comes to bowlers, Kagiso Rabada, Tabrez Shamsi, Lungi Ngidi, Enrique Norkhia can set their line-lengths on UAE pitches.
Big loss for England
Many England cricketers are playing in IPL 2021 but some of its big match winner players have withdrawn from this tournament. Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, David Malan and Chris Woakes have decided not to play IPL 2021 at the last minute. These players will be an important part of England’s playing XI in the T20 World Cup, but now these players will come to play the T20 World Cup without getting into the UAE pitch. By the way, players like Moeen Ali, Captain Eoin Morgan, Sam Karen, Sam Billings, Liam Livingstone, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy are going to participate in IPL 2021. In the end, the Indian team is going to benefit the most from IPL 2021 as every player of its T20 World Cup squad will play in this league and adapt themselves according to the pitch.
