However, on one hand, the fans are excited for the second phase of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 going to resume in September, the availability of the players is one of the biggest matters of concern. International stars haven’t confirmed yet about their arrival, which is still in doubt. The bio bubble fatigue and the COVID-19 scares have been making the situation even more challenging for most of the players.
