As IPL is the biggest and most followed T20 tournament in the world, all the fans around the world are very excited about who will win this IPL 2021. So here we come with our predictions and team details. So let’s start.
IPL 2021 Teams
Rajasthan Royals-IPL 2021
Rajasthan Royals will be hoping to win their second IPL title under their young captain Sanju Samson. The team looks pretty confident in the tournament. They have a lot of star players like Chris Morris, David Miller, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Jofra Archer, Tom Curran, Mustafizur Rahman. The experienced Amol Muzumdar is their batting coach which will help RR’s batting lineup a lot. Rajasthan royal won the inaugural edition of the IPL under the captaincy of Shane Warne. The leading run-scorer of Rajasthan royals is Ajinkya Rahane has scored 2705 runs and the leading wicket-taker is Shane Watson with 67 wickets. Royals were also the runner-up of the 2013 T20 champions league.
Yashasvi Jaiswal did not get enough chances last year. He played 3 matches scoring 40 runs. In IPL 2021 he might get more chances in absence of Robin Uthappa.
David Miller’s presence will add a lot of depth to the royals’ batting lineup. He has scored 1850 runs in his IPL career with an average of 33.63. He is also a great fielder. So having miller in the squad will have good support for the team. But looking at the royals squad it also can be difficult for royals management to give miller a position in playing 11 continuously.
It will be difficult to describe this man through words however his IPL stats does not say that. As stokes have not been able to perform according to his standard, stokes will be looking forward to coming up with a world cup winning experience and showing the same kind of talent in IPL too. He has scored 920 IPL runs and his attacking batting and his decent bowling will be a major factor for Rajasthan royals.
2) Chris Morris
Chris Morris, one of the most successful all-rounders of world cricket will be one of the important players of Rajasthan Royals and will be a great combination with English all-rounder ben stokes. South African all-rounder Morris has played for Royal Challengers Banglore and Delhi Capitals in the respective season and his performance has always been up to the mark.
The 27-year-old Sanju Samson is probably the quality keeper-batsman in India. Sanju was groomed by Rahul Dravid. He has already scored 2584 runs in his IPL career His attacking nature will help royals a lot. He has also represented India. His presence will make the royal’s middle-order stronger. This year will be a lot special for Sanju as he is going to play his first season as a captain ad will put a lot of things to the test.
Buttler is one of the astonishing batsmen of the cricket world. He will be the important name for steve’s side. He has already scored 1714 runs in his IPL career. In 2019 he had to leave IPL in the midway of the tournament to join world cup 2019 preparations, but he made a great impact in the matches he played.
Jofra the strong gun is the fastest bowler in IPL 2021. Jofra has already picked 46 wickets in his IPL career. He also can bat and can hit large sixes. Archer has scored 195 runs in IPL. He can be really dangerous in IPL 2021. His consistency is the major reason he is the top bowler in the world. It is sure that he will trouble the greatest batsman.
2) Kartik Tyagi
Kartik Tyagi took 9 wickets in IPL 2020. With his great abilities, Tyagi got to play 10 matches. In the 2020 U-19 world cup he picked up 11 wickets which helped team India to progress to the Final. Tyagi can be an effective bowler for Rajasthan Royals.
Rajasthan Royals squad looks fine and can go high in the tournament but it can be really difficult for Royals. Their bowling lineup does not seem to be so strong. We predict Rajasthan to end up the tournament at no 8 in the points table.
Sunrisers Hyderbad-IPL 2021
Sunrisers Hyderabad is a progressing team. Hyderabad played their first IPL in 2013 and soon after 3 years, they won their first title. The skipper David Warner is the leading run-scorer for the side having won the orange cap 3 times in 2015,2017,2019. Bhuvaneshor Kumar has taken the most number of wickets for Hyderabad. Muttiah Muralidharan is the bowling coach which is a great chance for youngsters to learn from a spin legend.
Warner is undoubtedly the most destructive batsman across all formats and when it comes to IPL then the stats clearly says he is the best. Skipper warner captained SRH to their maiden IPL title in 2016. He was the leading run-scorer in that season having scored 841 runs in that season. In his IPL career, he has scored 5254 runs and he will continue scoring like this.
Kane is one of the coolest and simplest players in the world but when it comes to cricket his bat speaks much higher. In 2018 he was the captain of Hyderbad in absence of David warner. His batting abilities are really unbelievable. Sunrisers Hyderabad having a lot of foreign stars looks a little difficult for Kane to be regular in the squad, but whenever he makes it to the squad he performs with his bat. He has scored 1619 runs in his IPL career.
Manish Pandey is the first Indian to score a century in IPL. He is a spectacular batsman with a lot of experience in IPL. The Karnataka batsman has scored 3268 runs in IPL and has also played for India where he scored a match-winning century against Australia.
England Wicketkeeper-batsman is a useful addition to sunrises Hyderabad and will be playing IPL with international aggression. SRH opening will be solid in presence of star overseas players like Jonny Bairstow and David warner. Bairstow has scored 790 runs in his IPL career with a tremendous average of 45.30.
Afghanistan star all-rounder has done a phenomenal job in Afghanistan’s progress to the test rank. Nabi, is currently the best all-rounder in the world and it will be interesting to see how Nabi will be used by the franchise but looking at the squad, Nabi does not seem to get many chances as only 4 foreign players are allowed.
Sunriser’s Hyderabad bowling lineup becomes incomplete without this talented player as Hyderbad’s bowling is a lot dependent on Rashid. Whenever Hyderabad needs a wicket Rashid is the man whom the captain puts forward. He played his first IPL in 2017 and since then he has become the big name in IPL. He has taken 75 wickets in his short IPL career.
Bhuvneshwor Kumar is the leader of the SRH bowling lineup and one of the most efficient death bowlers. The Indian medium-pacer has taken 136 IPL wickets. He is a big threat to the opposition. Having a bowler like him is a great advantage. Bhuvneshwor Kumar is the kind of talent that every team needs and Hyderabad will be expecting a lot from Kumar.
Sunrisers Hyderabad looks good on paper and has a lot of potential players but it seems that they will lack an all-around department. They have a good bowling lineup but will have a definite problem in finishing the game as they have no quality pinch hitters. So we predict Sunrisers Hyderbad will finish the tournament in number 6 at the points table.
Kings 11 Punjab-IPL 2021
Kings 11 Punjab will be captained by KL Rahul. They will be expecting a lot from their players and captain KL Rahul. In 2019 KL Rahul was the highest run-scorer for KXIP with 593 runs in 14 matches. Ravichandran Ashwin led KXIP ended the tournament in the sixth position in the league in 2019. They are expecting to perform better and do well in 2019 and 2020.
Universe Boss Chris Gayle has scored 4772 runs with an average of 41.13 at a strike rate of 150.02. He has scored 6 centuries and 28 half-centuries in his IPL career. Chris Gayle might not get enough chances but if he does he will surely be a key player for KXIP.
29 years old Mayank has good stats in his IPL career. Mayank looks absolutely sensational with the bat. He has scored 1690 runs in his IPL career. He can be a key player along with KL Rahul. If Chris Gayle does not open the innings then Mayank can open the innings with Chris Gayle.
Captain KL Rahul will be leading the team from the front. His performance clearly says that he can be the leading run-scorer in IPL 2021. He has already scored 2647 runs in his IPL career. This is the first time he is captaining the IPL team, so it will be a challenge and a learning experience for KL.
The explosive West Indian wicketkeeper-batsman was brought by KXIP for 4.2 crores in 2020. He has impressive numbers in T20 all over the world. He had scored 521 runs in his career and will be playing the finishing role on the Punjab side.
The English all-rounder has a great ability to ball and bat wherever the team wants. He is the kind of player every team wants. If he gets enough chances, he would be a key player for KXIP.
20 years old leg spinner Ravi Bishnoi took 12 wickets in IPL 2020. He can be vital for KXIP. His bowling ability is great. He has an economy of 7.37.
The Indian pacer has become a great white ball bowler in the last few years and was picked by KXIP in INR 4.8 crore. His experience will be much necessary for KXIP as he is the leading bowler of the KXIP bowling attack. He has taken 60 IPL wicket
On the overall study, the team does not look so strong. The team will be completely dependent on some particular players. Their bowling lineup does not seem to be strong. So we predict they will end the tournament remaining 7 in the points table.
Kolkatta Knight Riders-IPL 2021
The two-time IPL champions KKR holds the record for the longest winning streak by any Indian team in the T20s. Gautam Gambhir is the leading run-scorer for Kolkatta while Sunil Narine is the leading wicket-taker for KKR. In 2019 KKR failed to qualify for the playoff and ended the tournament in the fifth position.
Shubman Gill was the emerging player of IPL 2019 and he will want to continue his performance in IPL 2021. Gill has scored 939 IPL runs and will be a much necessary player for the KKR batting lineup. He has 7 half-centuries in his IPL career. He has a great strike rate of 125.65.
England skipper Eoin Morgan is one of the most innovative batsmen across the globe. He has played his IPL career with sunrises Hyderbad in 2015 and 2016. He has scored 1272 IPL runs. The world cup winning captain morgan was one of the hot picks for KKR in the 2020 IPL auction.
Dinesh led KKR for 2 seasons in 2018 and 2019. He is one of the most experienced wicketkeepers in IPL 2021. He made KKR to the playoffs in 2018 and finished fifth in the points table in 2019. Dinesh Kartik has scored 3823 IPL runs and he can do really well in IPL 2021.
The leader of the KKR bowling attack is Sunil Narine and he also can provide some cracking knocks with his bat. His stats clearly states that he is the best bowler in IPL history. He has taken 127 IPL wickets and scored 892 runs in his career. If he became successful with the ball then KKR might end the tournament with good results.
Andre Russel is the most destructive batsman and attacking all-rounder in the world. When he is batting there is no bowler who can actually stop him. Not only with his batting, but Russel also can provide a lot of quality to KKR’s bowling lineup. Andre is a trump card for KKR and if he became able to perform well KKR might go ahead in the tournament.
Australian Pacer Cummins was the biggest bargain in IPL 2020 auction but was finally bought by KKR for a whopping price of 15.50 Crores. He has taken 29 IPL wickets and 169 runs. He is a great bowler and also can bat well.
2) Harbhajan Singh
Harbhajan Singh is the best spinner world cricket has ever seen. His stats clearly shows what kind of player he is. He has already taken 150 IPL wickets and will probably take more.
KKR has a good mixture in the squad but does not have a lot of experienced bowlers which will cost them in a tournament. So we predict that KKR will end up in the tournament being at no 5 in the points table.
Royal Challengers Bangalore-IPL 2021
RCB will be trying to change their hard luck as they have not been able to win the IPL title, so they will be trying their level best to win their first IPL title. 2011-2017 was considered as gayle-Kohli-Devilliers era. Kohli scored 464 runs in IPl 2019 with one century and two half-centuries. Kohli will be trying his best to win his first IPL title.
Run Machine Kohli is an aggressive cricketer and he has proved that he is the best. Although RCB has not done well in IPL Virat Kohli has always come up with a brilliant performance. However, Kohli’s captaincy has been criticized many times in IPL. The Indian skipper has scored 5878 IPL runs and the hunger for scoring runs is increasing every day.
2) Devdutt Padikkal
Karnataka batsman devdutt padikkal has already proved what his potential is. He scored 473 runs in his debut season and also won Emerging player of the season. He is considered the future of Indian Cricket and he will surely perform better in the IPL 2021.
South African Keeper batsman is the greatest player in T20 cricket history. He has great hard-hitting skills. He is an acrobatic fielder. His experience can be important for RCB. AB is the kind of player who can single-handedly win the match for RCB as he has it many times. He has both strike rotating and hard-hitting abilities. He has scored 4849 IPL runs. AB is a complete power package player.
The destructive and innovative Australian all-rounder was brought for 14.25 crore. He has scored 1505 runs in IPL. He is a three-dimensional player. Maxwell can bat, bowl, and is also an acrobatic fielder. Glen Maxwell was not successful in the last season.
The wrist-spinner is the best spinner in IPL 2021. He has a lot of variations and is very clever with his bowling. He can play with a batsman mind and take a lot of wickets. Chahal has taken 121 IPL wickets. He is an absolute match-winner. He did his international debut in 2016.
2) Navdeed Saini
Saini is clearly one of the best Young Indian fast bowlers. He has taken 17 IPL wickets. His speed has been quite impressive and RCB management and captain Kohli will be expecting some similar things from Navdeep Saini.
The RCB squad looks good. Their batting lineup is so strong. They have world-class fielders. Their bowling line-up looks a little weak. So it might trouble them. We predict RCB to end the tournament at no 4 in the points table.
Delhi Capitals-IPL 2021
Delhi is the only team in the IPL that has never appeared in IPL final before 2020. But they reached the final in 2020. Unfortunately, they could not win the title. So this year they will be trying to change their luck and win the tournament. In 2019 Delhi entered the playoffs but could not make it through the final and ended the tournament as the second runner up.
Shimron will be playing the finisher’s role in the Delhi capital’s batting lineup. He was brought by Delhi for INR 7.75 crore in 2020. He has shown his potential in T20 leagues around the world. Hetmyer has a great six-hitting ability and has scored 275 IPL runs. The Caribbean star is said to be the new Chris Gayle as his batting aggression matches with the universe boss.
Left-handed opener Dhawan known as Gabbar is a consistent performer for his team. Wherever he plays he has played consistently. He has scored 5197 runs in IPL. He will be crucial for Delhi’s capitals and his performance is much needed if Delhi wants to win the tournament.
Skipper Shreyas Iyer is also another most consistent and trusted player for Delhi capitals. He led Delhi capitals to the semifinals in IPL 2019. He has won an emerging player award in his first season. There is a lot of responsibility on Iyer’s shoulder as Delhi has not been so successful. So they will be searching for their first title.
4) Steve Smith
Skipper smith will be the player to watch for this season. His presence will make the team more confident and progress through the season. He has already scored 2149 runs in his IPL career with an average of 37.05. The Australian classy batsman will be looking forward to contributing best for his side.

Australian All-Rounder Marcus Stoinis was bought by Delhi Capitals for 4.8 crores. His ability to finish the game has impressed the entire world. He has scored 825 runs and taken 28 wickets in his IPL career.
Rabada is the death-over expert and his pace and consistency will be vital for Delhi Capitals. He has taken 61 wickets in IPL. Rabada has also good batting ability. He can give a good finishing touch to the team.
Off spin king, Ashwin is the experienced bowler Delhi has. Ashwin spent his most career with the Chennai Super Kings and was very Successful in CSK. Adding Ashwin to the squad was a good move by Delhi capitals. He has taken 138 IPL wickets in his career.
This year Delhi has a great squad. It might be Delhi’s best squad in the entire IPL and they really have a high chance of winning IPL. So we predict Delhi to finish at no 3 in the Points Table.
Mumbai Indians-IPL 2021
Mumbai Indians are considered the kings of IPL. They have been truly unbelievable in IPL. Every IPL they have given unreal performances. They have won 4 IPL titles and 2 CLT20. Rohit Sharma is the captain who made Mumbai so successful. Mumbai were the champions of IPL 2019 so they will be ready to protect their tile.
Rohit Sharma commonly known as Hitman has been placed as one of the most successful captains in IPL history. He has guided Mumbai Indians to four IPL titles. Rohit Sharma is a gifted batsman. His experience and ability to understand the game are a plus point to Mumbai Indians. He has already completed 5000 IPL runs with an average of 31.71.
1)Quinton De Kock
South African magical batsman De Kock will open the innings for Mumbai Indians along with skipper Sharma. The left-handed has the potential to time the ball so well and have a great understanding of the game. He has scored 1959 runs in his career with an average of 31.64. His wicket-keeping ability is also unreal.
The confident Right-handed batsman never lets MI supporters down. He has a great belief in his bat. His attacking ability is insane. He has scored 1349 runs and taken 42 wickets in his IPL career. Other than batting his bowling abilities are also exceptionally good. He is also an acrobatic fielder.
There is no word for this kind of player. He is a star in himself. Pollard can change a game in an over. He can win an impossible match. His striking potential is out of the world. When he is in the batting, the fear in the bowler’s eyes can be seen. 33 years old pollard has won many games for Mumbai and has scored 3023 runs and taken 60 wickets in his IPL career.
Yorker King Bumrah is the no 1 death bowler around the world. He is known for his unorthodox action. Bumrah took Virat Kohli as IPL’s debut wicket. He has taken 109 wickets.
When the team has a bowler like Trent boult there is no pressure for the captain. his bowling is a nightmare to opponents. Besides bowling, the kiwi star is also known for his fielding ability. He has taken 63 IPL wickets.
Mumbai Indians squad looks very strong. They have a sensational batting lineup and a great pace attack. However, their spin bowling has not got so many options. So it might trouble them. Even though we predict Mumbai to end the tournament in no 1 of the points table.
Chennai Super Kings-IPL 2021
Chennai has a good record in IPL and their performance has always been high in IPL. They have won 3 IPL titles and 2 CLT20. They are the only team to qualify for playoffs for every season they have played except in the IPL 2020. So they have the highest win percentage among all teams in IPL. It will be exciting to see CSK qualify for playoffs once again after the poor performance in IPL 2020.
The experienced Indian Batsman Uthappa will be a strong addition to Chennai super Kings squad. His experience and potential to control the game can be really helpful for the team. He has scored 4607 Ipl runs and it is expected that he will complete his 5000 IPL runs in IPL 2021.
2)Faf Du Plessis
Faf as always is the most consistent player for Chennai. He has been performing in every match for CSK. He will get to play all matches in this year’s IPL because Raina is not playing the IPL. South African skipper has already scored 2302 runs in his IPL career. He was brought by CSK for Rs 1.6 cr.
From Mumbai Indians to Chennai super kings, ambati rayadu has highly grown up as a cricketer. He has been the most attacking batsman for CSK over years. Under Ms, he has learned a lot, and his potential is much needed for CSK. He has scored 3659 runs in his IPL career.
Captain Cool Ms. Dhoni has the ability to destroy the opponent’s bowling lineup of any team. He has a sharp cricketing brain and has extraordinary leadership skills. His attacking batting will be the key for CSK. His Wicket keeping skills add a lot of advantages to the team. He has scored 4632 IPL runs and he is the second-highest run-scorer in IPL.
Jadeja Known for his fielding is one of the most important players for CSK. He has great batting skills and attacking bowling skills. Jadeja is a three-dimensional player. He can bat, bowl, and his fielding efforts add a lot of confidence to the team. He has taken 114 IPL wickets and was bought at a whopping price of 9.8 crores.

Caribbean All-rounder Dwayne Bravo is a hard-hitting batsman and a skilled bowler. He is a key player. He has a lot of variation through which he can give pressure to opponents. Bravo has performed in every T20 league around the world. He played three seasons for Mumbai Indians. He has Scored 1490 IPL runs and taken 153 IPL wickets.
Playing the T20 leagues around the world he has been a true performer and performed in every league around the world. He has taken 80 wickets in his IPL career and his variations will trouble the opponent.
2) Lungi Ngidi
South African Pacer Lungi Ngidi can be an important fast bowler for Chennai Super Kings. He has taken 20 IPL wickets. But in presence of Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur, Ngidi is unlikely to get more chances.
Csk bowling lineup looks strong. They have a good bunch of spinners and pacers. Lat Year not having Raina and Harbhajan had become a problem for them. Especially not having Raina had affected them as they had no quality Indian batsman replacing him. But this time the team looks good and balanced. So we predict Chennai to end the tournament at no 2 in the points table.
