The Indian Premier League is back! After being delayed for almost half a year (the 2020 season was originally planned to start in March this year), the 13th season for the prestigious Indian cricket league recently opened, albeit several changes and adjustments due to the after-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the major changes for this year’s season of the IPL was that all games would be played overseas, in the United Arab Emirates to be specific. This would mean two things: one is that Indians, who are among the biggest fans of cricket in the world, would not be able to see the game live and in person, and two, even those who are overseas or are capable of going overseas would still not be able to see the game in person since the games would be played behind closed doors.
However, things have not changed for people who are into cricket betting. No matter which country they are in. Since online sports betting is done completely over the internet, all you need is to make sure that you are betting legally through a legitimate online sportsbook. It would help, then, if you read reviews of the best betting apps you can go to.
In the meantime, how can you watch the Indian Premier League then? Here are the ways you can live stream IPL games, depending on where you live.
