Last week, Sachin Tendulkar arrived in UAE for the upcoming IPL season and was under quarantine since then. Earlier in February, Sachin’s son Arjun Tendulkar was bought by Mumbai Indians in the IPL mini auction for Rs 20 lakh.
Meanwhile, MI and CSK, the two most successful IPL franchises (in case of a winning title), will take on the first match of the second leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 in Dubai on Sunday.
While CSK are second on the points table with five wins from seven matches – 10 points – MI are fourth with four wins – eight points – from seven matches.
MI have often started slowly, but they have improved their performance towards the end of the tournament. In the ongoing season, they dominated in the sixth and seventh matches, but then Covid-19 brought the tournament to a halt. It will be interesting to see how they start afresh.
