IPL 2021 Point Table
Delhi Capitals know that they will face tough competition from the three teams running right behind in the 'Battle of the Top' in the second phase of the IPL. That is why the key players of his team have been saying in the past that this will be a new beginning. What is done behind will not matter. Chennai, Bangalore and champions Mumbai will leave no stone unturned to remove Delhi from the first place. Let's take a look at what are the challenges ahead for the teams standing in the first four places in the points table.
This team is at the top of the points table with a great game. It has won 6 out of its eight matches and has a total of 12 points. Two more wins will ensure their place in the playoffs.
The team played well in the first phase, but when it enters the second round, there will be a lot of speculation about the combination. Shreyas Iyer has got fit and joined the team, which has added another strong option for him in the middle order. It has to be seen how the head coach works on this. Who has to sit outside?
Chennai are currently on the second spot in the points table with five wins out of seven matches played. After starting with defeat, Chennai bounced back and won five matches in a row. Two more wins can open the doors of the next round for this team as well.
This is the new season against which the matches will be played on fresh pitches. These can help the pacers in the early matches, which can create problems for the batsmen of this team. This is the weakness of the three-time champion team and now the fans would like to see the team overcome this weakness under the magical captaincy of MS Dhoni.
Royal Challengers Bangalore, looking for their maiden title, have scored 10 points from the first seven matches and are in third place. The team, which looked strong on paper every season, performed well in the first leg, but given the past record, their performance in the second leg also cannot be guaranteed.
Spin bowling all-rounder Washington Sundar and veteran Australian spinner Adam Zampa will not be with the team at this stage. Challengers have included Sri Lankan spinner Wanindu Hasaranga in exchange for Zampa. The team has experienced spinner Yuzvendra Chahal but whether Hasaranga will prove to be effective in UAE conditions will be a big question.
Champions Mumbai are currently in fourth place with only four wins out of seven matches. Raising the level of their game in a tough and stressful environment, the five-time champions came well for this team. However, he has to stay on the winning track for now.
If 14 points are needed to make it to the playoffs, then this team will have to win at least three of their remaining seven matches. The performance of this team in the second leg of IPL has always been better than the first leg and this team can repeat its performance once again.
