Before the league get started, let’s check out where your favourite team stands on the leaderboard so far.
Leading the points table is Rishab Pant led Delhi Capitals. The runner-up of IPL 2021 started the season in style and will go all the way to clinch the trophy. With Ricky Ponting as head coach, they won six of eight games with the perfect mix of team composition. While Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw provide an explosive start, Rabada and Amit Mishra are impressive with the ball.
Chennai Super Kings
CSK is at the second spot with ten points on the table. The three-time title winners are capable of turning anyone’s fortunes upside down. The men in yellow began their campaign on a high note and would like to keep the momentum going. Good at handling pressure, the team has experience of managing big moments in matches.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
With five wins in seven matches, RCB is in the third position on the points table. Bangalore is the most-watched team in the IPL for playing bold every time with good cricket and sportsmanship. If Kohli and AB De Villiers keep going, Royal Challengers are unstoppable.
The five-time champions will fight against all the odds to defend their title in this edition of the IPL. With many match-winners in the team, Mumbai is undoubtedly a favourite. The team stands at number four but is capable of accomplishing the impossible.
Known for encouraging young talent, Rajasthan is a high potential team. The team is capable of creating wonders with their quality players and will eye for consistency as the second half progresses.
The Punjab team must go into overdrive to keep themselves alive in the tournament. With KL Rahul, Chris Gayle, David Malan, Adil Rashid, Moses Henriques, Mayank Agarwal, Punjab team looks to pull out all the stops.
Kolkata Knight Riders
The two-time champions had a miserable show in the first half of the tournament and want to bounce back with a better performance. KKR will face the mighty RCB in Abu Dhabi on September 20.
Last on the leaderboard, SRH will lock horns with the dominant Delhi Capitals on September 22. With below-par performance, SRH is at the bottom of the points table and must focus on bettering their batting.
