IPL 2021: Second Leg Gives Three Teams An Edge!

They Will Benefit From UAE Grounds And Atom

The Covid-19 pandemic has been affecting our daily lives, which includes outdoor activities such as tournaments. Similarly, the IPL 2021 had to resume in September 2021 in the United Arab Emirates. However, the matches came to a halt in May due to an outbreak of Covid-19 in four significant teams. Some of the teams will not be happy by the shift to UAE like the Chennai Super Kings since they failed to qualify for playoffs here. However, other teams will be thrilled. We shall look at three of them.

Mumbai Indians

The Mumbai Indians are incredibly thrilled to have the tournament resume in the UAE. They lifted their fifth title in the year 2020, as they won both playoff matches. The flat pitches for their finishers and the fantastic conditions helped their pacers win the league quite easily. They are used to flat tracks in India; hence better-battling fields will be an added advantage offered in the UAE. Additionally, the new ball wickets snapped by Trent Boult, and Jasprit Bumrah in the UAE showed that the team performs better here.

Delhi Capitals

The Delhi Capitals would also be ecstatic to have the playoffs resume in the UAE. They will welcome back Shreyas Iyer, who missed the first phase of the tournament due to injury. They are currently at the top of the table, having won six out of eight games. Their squad includes Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Shimron Hetmyer, and Prithvi Shaw. With the current form on their side, they hope to have a better game this year and do better than they did during IPL 2020 in the UAE.

Punjab Kings

The Punjab Kings had quite an experience in the last season. They lost six out of their first seven matches and then won five games before losing the last two and losing the tournament. It, however, displayed that the team had a never-give-up attitude. So far, they have three wins out of eight matches. The squad seems to do better in the UAE than they are currently doing in IPL 2021. Their pacers did a great job in last season’s tournament and can only do better with additional teammates in this new season.

These are the IPL 2021 teams that have an advantage with the second phase of the IPL being shifted to UAE. The Mumbai Indians look forward to another win as they did in the previous year’s tournament. However, the Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings have not been left behind. They hope to have a shot at the title this year. purewinnews.com will follow up on the games and give live updates on the ongoing matches. May the best team win!
