Commentators in IPL 2021: Host broadcaster Star has announced a detailed list of commentators for the imminent IPL 2021.
The 14th season of the Indian Premier League is all set to commence as defending champions Mumbai Indians will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the season opener in Chennai.
With the biggest T20 league returning to India, bountiful arrangements have been made to conduct it amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The biggest cricket-related impact of the same would be that no team will be playing a league match at their home ground to ensure minimal travel.
Host broadcaster Star Network, which had organized a novel bio-secure bubble for its team in Mumbai during IPL 2020, has now arranged similar arrangements across six venues as IPL 2021 will be played in different parts of the country unlike the last season which was played in the UAE.
Known for delivering second to none fan-experience especially during a tournament such as the IPL, Star had once again roped in multiple tried and tested names in their commentary team. In addition to Star Sports Dugout and World feed (both English), fans will have the option of watching IPL 2021 matches in as many as seven other languages.
