When it comes to cricket Indians always go crazy. IPL proves to be the favorite and the most exciting format. As here the matches are not between countries but between states. Indian Premier League popularly abbreviated as IPL is just around the corner. The first match is beginning on 9th April 2021 and the match will be played between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Banglore. This year eight teams are competing for the IPl trophy namely – Mumbai Indians (MI), Royal Challengers Banglore (RCB), Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Delhi Capitals (DC), Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR), Punjab Kings(PK), Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad(SH).
The Trophy Chase in IPL 2021 Prediction
It’s hard to predict who’s gonna ace the game and get crowned by the majestic IPL trophy but here is a prediction of the chances of winning of the teams. All the teams have star players but what keeps the game going is the uncertainty and form of the players.
Chennai Super Kings (9/10)
CSK has wide support of fans across the country. It can surely be looked upon as a winner of IPL 2021. Though the team faced a backlash last season still it can cope and get to the top of the winner’s list.
Mumbai Indians (8/10)
The one team which may be considered one of the deadliest competitor of CSK is undoubtedly Mumbai Indians. Having won a good amount of seasons MI’s chances of winning is also not less. The best part being MI won the IPL 2020 by defeating Delhi Capitals.
Sunrisers Hyderabad (7/10)
SR has the most promising overseas lineup and can be seen as a deserving team to challenge the top two teams on the list. Apart from overseas players Sunrisers also have star Indian performers like Manish Pandey and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Kolkata Knight Riders(6/10)
KKR has been the most underrated team for a long time. But has the most experienced players in the order. With allrounder Shakib Al Hasan returning to the team, it can be seen as a ray of sunshine for the Knights. The only problem with the team is that its Indian contenders may not be as promising as the overseas player. So huge burden is on the foreign performers in the team.
RR is the one team that broke all the auction records for the IPL season 2021 by considering Chris Morris. Royals have a huge expectation for the season winner with promising Indian player’s line up including Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, and Rahul Tewatia as well as overseas players namely Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Mustafizur Rahman, and David Miller.
Formerly Punjab used to represent it by the name Kings XII Panjab (pronounced as Kings Eleven Punjab). But now the team has renamed it by Punjab Kings. Chris Gale is one of the top-order players who may seem to be the game-changer. It would be exciting to see Chris Gayle known for his massively impressive in-game actions.
