The IPL season 13 has been long-awaited since its postponement due to the COVID-19 lockdown across the globe. The biggest T20 league in the world is set to take the center stage for the next 53 days from 19 September. It will see the league’s two most successful teams battle it out to begin the tournament and take it to the other venues – Sharjah and Dubai, from Abu Dhabi.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore reached the finals of the IPL the very first time the tournament went outside India in 2009. They have reached the finals, in 2011 and 2016 also. They were knocked out in the playoffs in 2010 and 2015 and finished third both times.
