Sunrisers Hyderabad has had a poor start to the IPL 2021 first phase, and they are currently at the bottom of the standings, which is unusual for a team of their calibre. The 2016 winners have consistently finished among the top four teams in the league and have made the playoffs in the last few years. They have only won one of their seven games, and it appears like they will miss out on the playoffs this season.

Mumbai Indians will be one of the teams relieved to learn that the IPL 2021 would be held in the United Arab Emirates, since they thrived in the previous season. Despite not being at their best, the five-time winners have won four of their first seven games, which speaks much about the Mumbai Indians’ talent. Their bench strength appears to be as strong as ever, and they will be trying to advance in the standings as well.

Rajasthan Royals played seven matches in the first leg of the IPL 2021. The team led by Sanju Samson won three games and lost four. They are ranked 5th in the IPL 2021 points standings with 6 points. In games against the Delhi Capitals, Kolkata Knight Riders, and Sunrisers Hyderabad, RR came out on top. In matches against Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Punjab Kings, and Mumbai Indians, however, they were defeated.

Kolkata Knight Riders will look for a better performance in the second UAE leg after a poor showing in the first leg of the IPL 2021. The team, led by Eoin Morgan, won only two of the seven games they played and lost five. KKR is in the second-to-last position in the IPL 2021 points table, with only 4 points.

With 10 points, the Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore are now in third place in the IPL 2021 points standings. RCB has won five and lost two of their seven matches. Mumbai Indians, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals, and Delhi Capitals were all defeated by the team. However, they were unable to win against Chennai Super Kings and Punjab Kings, and were defeated.

Punjab Kings have made a number of interesting acquisitions this season, but their fortunes haven’t changed in this IPL 2021, and it has been the case for the past five years. They haven’t made the playoffs since the 2014 season, which is a long time for a team, and they should definitely look into what’s gone wrong. Punjab has only won three of their eight games, and they are now in sixth place.

With 12 points, Delhi Capitals are presently at the top of the IPL 2021 points table. DC has won six and lost only two of their eight matches.

In the absence of usual skipper Shreyas Iyer, who was ruled out due to injury, Rishabh Pant led DC in the first leg. Iyer, on the other hand, will return for the second UAE leg, which is welcome news for the franchise. DC management is expected to keep Rishabh Pant as captain for the remainder of the competition, according to reports.
