Vivo IPL 2021: The talkings of the Vivo IPL 2021 started taking rounds of social media as soon as the BCCI on Sunday revealed the newly revised schedule for the second half of the Vivo IPL 2021. The tournament is all set to commence with Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK), two on-field foes, taking on each other on 19th September 2021 in Dubai.
The surface of the UAE has slightly different behaviours than Indian surfaces which means certain cricketers who struggled in India may get a chance to impress in the UAE cricket surfaces.
The article will take you through all the details of surfaces being used in the UAE and the three most probable players who will benefit from it more than ever.
Vivo IPL 2021: 3 Cricketers who will benefit from UAE surface in the Vivo IPL 2021:
Yuzvendra Chahal had a horrible outing in the first half of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. The premier RCB spinner managed to deceive just four players with his spin web and was smacked with an economy of 8.26.
Chahal struggled to find a right line and length for him which resulted in him scalping just four wickets in seven appearances.
With the leggie getting back in shape during the ongoing India tour of Sri Lanka, Chahal will feel safe with IPL 2021 getting shifted to the UAE.
The surface in the middle-east nation will assist his type of bowling. Barring Sharjah, which is reckoned as the batsman paradise due to its short boundaries, Abu Dhabi and Dubai will help Chahal’s bowling style.
It is noteworthy, RCB spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was the leading wicket fetcher for RCB with 21 wickets in 15 outings in UAE.
Mumbai Indians (MI) leggie Rahul Chahar is also on the list of players getting benefits from the UAE surfaces.
The young leggie showed promising signs consistently in the last few IPL appearances and owing to which he received his maiden T20I and ODI call-up.
Rahul Chahar was in fine touch during the first half of the IPL 2021, unlike Yuzvendra Chahal. The spinner provided 11 breakthroughs in seven matches in the first half.
He will look to continue his golden run in the IPL and pick up more wickets taking leverage of the UAE tweak friendly conditions.
Talking about his last year’s IPL stats, Chahar scalped 15 wickets in as many appearances.
The dashing cricketer failed to score runs for his team which really doesn’t suit players of his calibre.
Making the outing more forgetful, SRH management sacked him from the leadership role and was eventually dropped from playing XI as well.
Warner managed to amass 193 runs in six matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
The Aussie cricketer plundered a staggering 548 runs in IPL 2020 and has been consistent in the cash-rich league. He has amassed over 500 runs in consecutive six IPL seasons.
Warner loves the offering from the UAE surface and will be looking forward to making most of the second half of the IPL 2021.
