The IPL has been known to defy challenges. But with India busy battling an alarming surge in Covid cases, how will cricket’s biggest party end this time around?
Here’s wishing the Indian Premier League (IPL) a very happy and safe 14th birthday. The party begins today. Starting 7.30 pm, fans will once again let their hair down and dance to a tune that appeals to one and all. It’s been a ritual since 2008, when India’s single-biggest export to the world was born out of a consummation between the game’s powerful patrons and the country’s corporate echelons.
