VIVO IPL 2021 Points Table As Of 6th October 2021
CSK is the first team to qualify for playoffs in IPL 2021. DC, RCB & KKR also qualify for playoffs.
We had predicted RCB to win the title, but they got out from IPL 2021, after losing to Kolkata in the first qualifier 1. Now the probability of Chennai & Kolkata, winning the title is 60:40
Who Will Win IPL 2021 Final ?
CSK is sitting at the top with 18 points, having won 9 out of 14 matches. DC and RCB are placed at 2nd and 3rd positions with 18 points. If we have to choose one team who can win IPL 2021? According to sportsganga, it will be Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
There are few reasons which make us choose RCB over other teams.
BALANCED BATTING UNIT
RCB has made their batting lineup stronger with the addition of Glenn Maxwell into their squad. He has performed exceptionally well in this edition. Maxwell coming up with the order has allowed AB de Villiers to come down the order and play fearless cricket. The performance of opener Devdutt Padikkal has also been like icing on the cake.
The top 5 batsmen of RCB make them the best and most destructive batting lineup of this season. The new foreign addition to the squad Kyle Jamieson has also impressed everyone with his pace and bounce. Chahal has been able to sustain the batsmen with his tight line and length. The new batting sensation of RCB, KS Bharat can also play a vital role. Their performance so far has also proved it correct.

BOWLING UNIT PERFORMING TO THEIR POTENTIAL
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has always been a batting heavy team. But this time, the performance of bowlers has made the side fire from all cylinders. Harshal Patel (highest wicket-taker so far in this season 29) has been phenomenal with the bowl. He has got good support from MD Shiraj.
The new foreign addition to the squad Kyle Jamieson has also impressed everyone with his pace and bounce. Chahal has been able to sustain the batsmen with his tight line and length.
VARIETY OF ALL-ROUNDERS
RCB this season has been blessed with many quality all-rounders in their squad. Maxwell is a multidimensional player who can bowl quality overs of spin. They have other foreign players such as Tim David, George Garton who can always be very handy when given an opportunity. Harshal Patel can also bat when needed.
These are the factors that make RCB better placed than other teams. Their performance in these 7 matches so far has raised a lot of hope for their fans. We feel RCB has the potential to win its maiden IPL title in 2021. Virat Kohli will step down as RCB captain after IPL 2021 and he would definitely like to win an IPL title for the team under his captaincy.
If RCB continues its good performance then it will definitely win the title. But it is likely to face tough challenges from Chennai and Delhi.
