Vivo IPL 2021 Live Streaming Online: The biggest, brightest cricketing show on the Earth is here! Yes, the Indian Premier League is set to begin on Friday with the spectacular opening match between the Royal Challengers Bangalore and the current champions Mumbai Indians. After the 2020 Edition in the UAE, IPL fans were hoping to catch the live action in the stadiums across India. In fact, initially, it was decided that spectators will be allowed with all due precautions. However, due to the second wave of the coronavirus, the IPL Governing Council decided to abort the plans and decided to hold the IPL 2021 matches behind closed doors. So, this year, just like IPL 2020, fans will be able to watch the IPL matches on their TV sets and smartphones. So, here’s what you need to know about IPL Live Streaming and other details:
