New Delhi. The second phase of the 14th edition of IPL (IPL 2021), the richest T20 league in the world will be held in the United Arab Emirates. The first match of the second phase will be played between five-time champions Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Earlier, former India veteran opener Gautam Gambhir had said that the Mumbai Indians would benefit from playing in the UAE. He said the Mumbai franchise has performed amazingly in the UAE in the past and has also been champion.
The 39-year-old Gambhir said on the star sports show ‘Game Plan’ that no team will benefit in the second round of IPL-2021. He said, ‘Mumbai will probably benefit the most, as they have won the title in the UAE before. The Mumbai franchise has won in Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates (Dubai) for the last time. Now they are going back to the same place and they are in a position where they can actually finish the 14th season of the league in the top 2 teams.

The former Kolkata Knight Riders captain said, “If you look at other franchises, especially KKR or even Sunrisers (SRH), it is very difficult for them to qualify for the last-4. Even reaching the top-4 is not easy for the Punjab Kings. If you ask me one of the franchises that will benefit after this break is Mumbai Indians.
The second phase of IPL-2021 will start in Dubai from September 1 and the final match will also be held on October 15 in Dubai. So far in the points table, Delhi Capitals are at the top with 12 points from 8 matches. At the same time, Chennai Super Kings are second and Royal Challengers Bangalore are second and third with 10-10 points respectively.
