IPL 2021: CSK vs RCB match being dubbed as biggest clash of the season; Who will take the No.1 spot?
Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore are at different places in terms of their IPL journey. After dominating the league for several years, Chennai hit rock-bottom the last year but have found steam once again.
Royal Challengers Bangalore, on the other hand, having not won an IPL title ever, are on an upswing over the last couple of years. This time particularly, the team has been playing the best brand of cricket that they have over the last few years.
RCB have won each of their first four matches, with all of them – apart from the last ball win against Mumbai Indians – being comprehensive. This reflects in their net run rate as well. If Virat Kohli’s men can manage to win a fifth game on the trot, they will be the undisputed leaders after the completion of Phase 1 with 10 points from 5 games- a feat no other team can achieve.
IPL 2021: Delhi Capital eye big-margin win to establish claim for top spot
On the other hand, DC can also spring a comprehensive win against a languishing Sunrisers Hyderbad side in the second game of the double-header tomorrow. Delhi Capitals are currently on 6 points after managing 3 wins in the four games while SRH picked up their first win after 3 consecutive losses. Comparing the top 3 teams in IPl 2021 points table, DC has the least run rate but if the Rishabh Pant-led side can garner a win by big margin, it would open up their chances to become the frontrunners for the coveted IPL 2021 title.
