The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) provided top-class entertainment to the cricket fraternity and kept the fans hooked to their television screens. The now-suspended tournament witnessed high-scoring fixtures, low-scoring games, last-ball thriller, and Super Over-finishes. 

However, in a disappointing turn of events, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was forced to postpone the T20 Championship after hosting just 29 fixtures. The Indian board decided to postpone the league considering the safety of the players and other members involved as the Covid-19 was successful in breaching the biosecure bubble. 

The remaining matches of IPL 2021 are likely to be hosted in the September-October window in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The venue change can work wonders for some players as it will provide them an opportunity to start fresh and find their lost form. 

In the article, let’s take a look at 5 players who could find their form in the UAE:

The ace leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is counted as one of the most successful spinners in the history of the Indian Premier League. The 30-year-old emerged as the main force behind Royal Challengers Bangalore’s bowling line-up. Chahal was a go-to bowler for skipper Virat Kohli as he picked wickets in crunch situations while keeping control over the economy rate.

However, the Haryana stalwart wasn’t experiencing an ideal outing in the 14th edition of the T20 Championship. Chahal failed to find his rhythm and couldn’t manage to pose any threat to the opposition batters. The leg-spinner played all seven matches for the Bangalore outfit but managed to pick just four wickets while bowling at an economy rate of 8.26.

With IPL 2021 now shifting to the United Arab Emirates, Chahal will be hoping to experience a different ride in the remaining matches of the league. The bowler was the highest wicket-taker among the spinner in IPL 2020, hosted in UAE last year. He picked 21 wickets from 15 matches.
