"I know you all are waiting to see CSK play at Chepauk. Well, the moment is not very far. The 15th season of the IPL will take place in India and it will be more exciting than ever with two new teams joining," Jay Shah said, adding, "we have a mega auction coming up, so it will be interesting to see what the new combinations look like."

The 2021 edition of the IPL began in India but it was suspended midway through the tournament due to multiple Covid-19 cases in the camps of participating franchises.
The season was then completed in September-October later this year in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Earlier, the entire 2020 IPL also took place in the UAE.
