What is the IPL Format?
Eight teams compete in the IPL, each representing a different Indian city. The 2021 competition sees the Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Capitals, Kings XI Punjab, Kolkata Knight Riders, Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrises Hyderabad swinging it out against each other. Each team will play each other twice (home and away) in a league format, before the top four teams enter the play-offs. The top two teams at the end of the league phase play each other in one qualifier, and the third placed teams plays the fourth placed in another qualifier. The winner of the first qualifier automatically qualifies for the final. Then the loser of the first qualifier then plays the winner of the second qualifier in the Eliminator round. The winner of this match qualifies for the final.
The current IPL champions are the Mumbai Indians, who defeated the Delhi Capitals by five wickets in the spectacular 2020 final. Mumbai are the most successful team in IPL history, having claimed the title five times.
IPL 2021 Auction
The 2021 IPL auction saw South African Chris Morris become the most expensive player in the league’s history, with the Rajasthan Royals paying Rs 160.5 million to bring the batsman back to the team he played for in the 2015 IPL.
Elsewhere, former Australian Test Captain Steve Smith was the first purchase at the 2021 IPL Auction, bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore for Rs 20.2 million. Cummins’ fellow Australian Glenn Maxwell was also picked up by RCB for a massive Rs 140.25 million, while Bangladeshi all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan joined the Kolkata Knight Riders for Rs 30.2 million.
Who are Favourites for the 2021 IPL?
But don’t be fooled into thinking the auctioned players are the only big names in IPL 2020. Hyderabad not only retained Warner and signed Priyam Garg, they also kept New Zealand talisman Kane Williamson and England’s Johnny Bairstow on their books. Meanwhile, MS Dhoni stayed loyal to the Chennai Super Kings, as did Faf du Plessis and Mitchell Santner. And even if the Dehli Capitals didn’t add a host of overseas superstars to their squad, the likes of Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Plant and Amit Mishra are capable of beating anyone.
But of course, if any of these teams are to triumph, they must steal the IPL crown from the formidable Mumbai Indians – whose fearsome line-up features the likes of Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah and Quinton de Kock, all retained from last season.
What is the IPL 2021 Schedule?
