The competition is beginning to heat up as IPL ’21 approaches the business end. The cricket matches in the UAE are throwing up a slightly different narrative to the earlier half of the tournament with 5 cricket teams now vying for the last couple of positions in the top-4.

IPL 2021 Betting Odds
RCB: 2.10
CSK: 1.72


After a crushing loss in the first match since the restart, Royal Challengers Bangalore cricket team will need to win this clash or risk dropping out of the top-4. Chennai Super Kings can virtually guarantee a playoff-spot if they win this encounter after a superb comeback in their opening match of the UAE leg.
RCB’s star batsman Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell have to deliver to cover up the deficiencies of the batting-card. On the bowling side, the seamers like cricketers Harshal Patel and Kyle Jamieson may not have as much success in the UAE as they did earlier.

CSK cricket team has a fairly obvious starting XI so it’s only a matter of their experienced players getting into form. Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu and Suresh Raina have to step it up a notch after getting ducks in the last match. CSK has a more consistent bowling-unit which should seal this match in their favour.

Delhi Capitals v Rajasthan Royals Cricket Predictions

IPL 2021 Betting Odds
DC: 1.56
RR: 2.40

Requiring just 1 more win to ensure a playoff-berth, Delhi Capitals have carried their momentum into the 2nd half of the tournament with a routine win. Rajasthan Royals also bagged a victory to give a huge boost to their top-4 hopes courtesy of an incredible last-over performance from Karthik Tyagi.

The Capitals put on a strong display on all fronts, laying down a marker for the rest of the IPL. Their fabulous top-4 looked in good knick and hungry for runs. And the two South Africans, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje proved that raw pace can still be a big threat despite the challenging conditions.

Royals, too, will draw a lot of confidence from their win and the manner of it. The batting-card did a good job but it will come up against the best bowling-unit in this clash. And while Royals have a reliable bunch of bowlers, they lack the pace and dynamism to rip through a powerful batting line-up.

Sunrisers Hyderabad v Punjab Kings

IPL 2021 Betting Odds
SRH: 2.08
PBKS: 1.74

It’s last-chance saloon for Sunrisers Hyderabad in terms of finishing in the top-4 of IPL ’21 after going down to their 7th defeat of the season. Not much different for Punjab Kings either, who cannot afford any more slip-ups after letting go of another victory right out of their hands.

Misery for SRH continues as their weaknesses are getting badly exposed this season. Over-reliance on a few batsmen has spelt trouble with them being unavailable or out of form. Same with the bowling unit, as the supporting-cast has not contributed enough behind their talisman Rashid Khan.

Punjab Kings is still stuck to the stereotype; great individual performances yet still failing to deliver as a collective. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have scored over 300 runs but nothing much from the rest. Arshdeep Singh and Mohammed Shami have over 10 wickets but nobody else has more than 5.

Chennai Super Kings v Kolkata Knight Riders Betting Predictions

Chennai Super Kings could perhaps be in the playoffs already by the time this match gets underway or not; they will be ahead of their opponents in the standings. Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Riders have racked up successive wins in the UAE to salvage their campaign after a poor 1st half to the season.

It will be interesting to see how CSK lines up for this encounter. There are a few question-marks regarding the form of their middle-order. Their bowling-unit looks the stronger one on paper which gives them the edge in repeating the success from the previous encounter between the two teams.

Kolkata Knight Rider certainly has momentum on its side after a couple of handsome wins that refilled the confidence within the team. KKR seems to have found the right combination for their batting-card while the bowlers look a completely transformed outfit from the opening half of the campaign.

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Mumbai Indians Betting

This is potentially a titanic clash in the context of the playoffs spot and either side could face massive repercussions if they come up second-best in this contest. Presently, Royal Challengers Bangalore is in 3rd position with Mumbai Indians a couple of points back in 6th place.

Royal Challengers Bangalore started IPL ’21 in tremendous fashion, their best in recent years and as expected they definitely suffered the most due to its interruption. This mercurial side now has to rebuild its form with both and ball after a disastrous beginning to the UAE leg of the tournament.

Mumbai Indians gave a lacklustre account of their title-defence in the initial half of the competition and have started off on the wrong-foot in the Middle-east. The batting-card is not in the best of form at the minute while the bowlers have also not had their rhythm as yet.
