Chennai Super Kings kick off UAE leg against title-holders Mumbai Indians in Dubai

The 2021 Indian Premier League resumes on Sunday in the UAE following a four-month hiatus because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Chennai Super Kings lock horns with defending champions Mumbai Indians at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in the first match. That game kicks off at 6pm UAE.
