IPL 2021: A Complete Guide to the 14th Edition of The League
With the completion of the IPL 2021 auction, the 14th edition of the league is all set to commence in mid-April. As always, the upcoming IPL edition would continue to enthrall cricket fans with its glitz and glamour, and the involvement of various big names will only escalate the popularity of the T20 extravaganza.
Ahead of IPL 2021, here’s a complete guide to the tournament’s date, venue, and format. Also, the article covers the complete squads of all the eight IPL franchises. Read on!
IPL 2021 Date: When IPL will start?
A total of 60 matches will be played in the 14th edition of the IPL between the April-May bracket. As per BCCI, the league is likely to be hosted either in mid-April or the second week of April. So, it’s possible that the first IPL 14 game will be played on April 14, with the finals being conducted on June 06.
IPL 2021 Venue
As the threat of the coronavirus pandemic still remains, a limited number of venues are likely to get a chance to host IPL 2021. As per reports, three stadiums in Mumbai – Bradbourne Stadium, Wankhede Stadium, and D.Y. Patil Stadium – could be chosen to play the league stage. The playoffs are expected to be held at the renovated Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera.
IPL 2021 Format
IPL Governing Council (IGC) was planning to add two more teams ahead of the IPL 2021 auction, but now the teams will be added in IPL 2022. So, a total of 8 teams will take part in the 14th edition of the IPL. In the league stage, each team will play two times with the rest of the seven teams. Then there will be eliminator and final matches. That way, 60 matches will be played in the entire tournament.
IPL 2021 Teams
Here is a complete list of the eight IPL franchises and their respective squad. The IPL is a very competitive competition because all of the teams are very evenly matched. However, there are some teams that are heavily included in the majority of the IPL cricket betting tips. That ensures that punters are always keen to keep an eye on how they are performing. There are in total 8 teams in the popular Indian Premier League:
Mumbai Indians (MI)
Mumbai Indians hardly needed to purchase players in the IPL 2021 auction as they had retained most of their core players. But with INR 15.35 crores in their kitty, the Rohit Sharma led side did buy back-up players to fill their seven slots.
Of the four overseas slots, three were filled in with pacers. Having released ahead of the IPL 2021 auction, Mumbai Indians spent INR 5.5 crores to buy overseas pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile. Also, experienced spinner Piyush Chawla bagged a hefty INR 2.4 crore contract from the franchise.
Mumbai Indians spent INR 3.20 crore to retain the services of Adam Milne and also bought Kiwi all-rounder James Neesham for INR 50 lakh.
South African fast bowler Marco Jansen, alongside uncapped all-rounders Yudhvir Charak and Arjun Tendulkar were also picked by the defending champions.
Strength of Mumbai Indians
Rohit Sharma along with Ishan Kishan definitely make for a dangerous top order as both players delivered stellar performances in the 13th edition of the league. Also, the franchise has Suryakumar Yadav who is the most consistent batsman in the Mumbai Indians lineup.
The Indians have a pace bowling line-up in the form of Jasprit Bumrah, Nathan Coulter-Nile, and Trent Boult, Dhawal Kulkarni. Moreover, all-rounders Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard have been MI’s core match winners for quite some time.
Weakness of Mumbai Indians
Mumbai Indians have to rely on Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Saurabh Tiwary, or Krunal Pandya to play at the number 4 spot. Playing all-rounders at number four makes their tail a little weak while having Saurabh Tiwary at this position doesn’t end their number four problem completely.
Players released before the auction
Lasith Malinga, Mitch McClenaghan, Sherfane Rutherford, Prince Balwant Rai, James Pattinson, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Digvijay Deshmukh.
MI final squad
Rohit Sharma (C), Aditya Tare, Anmolpreet Singh, Anukul Roy, Dhawal Kulkarni, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Jasprit Bumrah, Jayant Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Quinton de Kock, Rahul Chahar, Suryakumar Yadav, Trent Boult, Chris Lynn, Saurabh Tiwary, Mohsin Khan, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Milne, Piyush Chawla, James Neesham, Yudhvir Charak, Marco Jansen, Arjun Tendulkar.
Delhi Capitals (DC)
Delhi Capitals have had a mixed IPL 2021 auction, with a few questionable purchases. Australian batsman Steve Smith, who was purchased for INR 2.2 crores, was the most profitable high-profile procurement for the Capitals. However, there’s the question of where will the Capitals fit the former Australian captain as they already have plenty of batting options.
Having spent INR 5.5 crores on Tom Curran, the Australian all-rounder was Delhi Capitals’ costliest pick in the auction. Wicketkeeper-batsman was purchased by the Capitals for INR 2 crores, whereas Umesh Yadav attracted a bid of INR 1 crore.
Ripal Patel, M. Siddharth, Vishnu Vinod, and Lukman Meriwala were all purchased by Delhi Capitals for their base price of INR 20 lakh.
Strength of Delhi Capitals
With the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Steve Smith, Prithwi Shaw, and Rishabh Pant, Delhi Capitals is arguably the only IPL team that has a solid top five. In addition, the Capitals have a proper middle-order backup in the form of Chris Woakes and Marcus Stoinis.
With the presence of R. Ashwin in the squad, Delhi Capitals is one of the few IPL teams to have a solid spin department. The likes of R Ashwin, Axar Patel, and Amit Mishra make for a fantastic trio for the Capitals.
Weakness of Delhi Capitals
Unlike many other IPL teams, Delhi Capitals lacks a strong Indian pacer. While their pacer Ishant Sharma has immense experience, his capabilities are limited for pitches that offer swing and lateral movement.
DC has to rely on Avesh Khan for its pace attack, but the youngster lacks enough T20 experience. Harshal Patel is a good option for the Capitals. However, Patel is a medium pacer who is best suited for medium and slow pitches.
Players released before the auction
Keemo Paul, Sandeep Lamichhane, Alex Carey, Jason Roy, Mohit Sharma, Tushar Deshpande
DC complete squad
Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, R Ashwin, Lalit Yadav, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Pravin Dubey, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Chris Woakes, Daniel Sams, Steve Smith, Umesh Yadav, Ripal Patel, Vishnu Vinod, Lukman Meriwala, M Siddharth, Tom Curran, Sam Billings
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)
With INR 35.40 crores in its kitty, RCB spent most of its budget to retain the services of eight players – three foreigners and five Indians. Kyle Jamieson and Glenn Maxwell were the top procurements for RCB at the IPL 2021 auction.
New Zealand fast bowler Kyle Jamieson attracted INR 15 crores price, while Australian IPL veteran Glenn Maxwell attracted a price of INR 14.25 crore. Being roped in for INR 4.80 crores, Dan Christian was another top pick for the Challengers.
RCB’s domestic buys include Sachin Baby, Rajat Patidar, Mohammed Azharuddin, Suyash Prabhudesai, and KS Bharat. All of these were obtained for their base price of INR 20 lakh.
Strength of Royal Challengers Bangalore
With Devdutt Padikkal, AB de Villers, and Virat Kohli in the top four, RCB has an excellent top order. Also, the procurement of all-rounders Glenn Maxwell and Dan Christian could be the X factor for the Challengers.
With the inclusion of Jameison, RCB seems to have addressed their need for an overseas pacer and their issue for bowling in the death bowlers.
Weakness of Royal Challengers Bangalore
Having let go of Aaron Finch, RCB has limited its options to open alongside local boy Devdutt Padikkal. Also, the Challengers need to bolster up their middle and lower order, for which Dan Christian and Maxwell may not be the only solution.
Players released before the auction
Aaron Finch, Chris Morris, Isuru Udana, Shivam Dube, Moeen Ali, Pawan Negi, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Dale Steyn, Parthiv Patel, Umesh Yadav
RCB complete squad
Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Devdutt Padikkal, Mohammed Siraj, Navdeep Saini, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Joshua Phillipe, Pavan Deshpande, Shahbaz Ahmed, Adam Zampa, Kane Richardson, Kyle Jamieson, Glenn Maxwell, Dan Christian, Sachin Baby, Rajat Patidar, Mohammed Azharudeen, Suyash Prabhudesai, Kona Srikar Bharat.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
Chennai Super Kings entered IPL 2021 auction with INR 19.90 crores and six slots to fill. CSK had only one overseas requirement and it was filled by Moeen Ali for INR seven crores.
While CSK’s domestic purchases like K.Bhagath Varma, C Hari Nishaanth, and M. Harisankar Reddy did not raise eyebrows, spending INR 9.25 crores on K Gowtham and buying Cheteshwar Pujara certainly did. Pujara seems to be a liability for CSK due to his inability to hit high at will.
Strength of Chennai Super Kings
Under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, Chennai Super Kings failed to make an impact in IPL 2020. But given the past records, the upcoming IPL edition promises something special from Dhoni when it comes to batting and captaincy.
With the likes of Imran Tahir and Mitchell Santner, Chennai’s spin attack has the ability to contain the batting lineup of the opposite side. Moreover, with the addition of Dwayne Bravo, CSK does have an edge.
Weakness of Chennai Super Kings
It may sound surprising, but CSK’s power-hitting is a bit of concern. Suresh Raina missed the 13th edition of the league, whereas Ambati Rayadu has been slightly inconsistent. Also, the retirement of Watson from all forms of cricket is certainly a blow for the Kings.
Players released before the auction
Murali Vijay, Monu Kumar, Kedar Jadhav, Piyush Chawla, Harbhajan Singh, Shane Watson (retired).
CSK complete squad
MS Dhoni (C), Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, N Jagadeesan, Faf Du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sam Curran, Ravi Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Mitchell Santner, Josh Hazlewood, Shardul Thakur, Karn Sharma, KM Asif, Imran Tahir, R. Sai Kishore, Deepak Chahar, Lungi Ngidi, Moeen Ali, Krishnappa Gowtham, Harisankar Reddy, Bhagvath Varma, and Cheteshwar Pujara
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
Kolkata Knight Riders entered the IPL 2021 auction with INR 10.75 crores, and spent INR 7.5 crore on eight players.
Kolkata’s biggest buy in the 2021 auction was Bangladeshi all-rounder Shaqib Al Hasan, who they purchased for a price of INR 3.2 crore. As they had retained most of their base players, the Riders didn’t have the need for extensive spending.
In addition, KKR also made smart buys by recruiting Sheldon Jackson, Pawan Negi, Venkatesh Iyer, Harbhajan Singh, Karun Nair. Moreover, their purchasing of Ben Cutting could be an excellent backup for Andre Russell.
Strength of Kolkata Knight Riders
After experiencing a lag in the spin department last year, KKR seems to have bolstered up their spinning lineup ahead of IPL 2021. With the likes of S. Narine, Kuldeep, Harbhajan Singh, and Varun Chakravarthy, the Riders have a variety of spinner options this year.
Along with the spin department, KKR also has a good fast bowling department in the form of Nagarkoti, Mavi, and Vaibhav Arora. Moreover, the recruitment of Shaqib Al Hasan and Ben Cutting make for lethal power hitters.
Weakness of Kolkata Knight Riders
Despite having a good fast bowling lineup, KKR’s major weakness this year is inexperienced fast Indian bowlers. If these young Indian bowlers fail to limit the opposition’s batting lineup, then Kolkata might experience trouble in some IPL games.
Players released before the auction
M Siddharth, Nikhil Naik, Siddhesh Lad, Chris Green, Tom Banton, Harry Gurney, Ali Khan,
KKR complete squad
Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Karthik, Shakib al Hasan, Karun Nair, Ben Cutting, Harbhajan Singh, Sheldon Jackson, Andre Russell, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Nitish Rana, Prasidh Krishna, Rinku Singh, Sandeep Warrier, Shivam Mavi, Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins, Rahul Tripathi, Varun Chakravarthy, Ali Khan, Tim Seifert, Pawan Negi, Venkatesh Iyer, Vaibhav Arora
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)
Sunrisers Hyderabad, who ended up at the third spot in IPL 2020, was the silent spectator at the IPL 2021 auction. This is because they only had three slots to fill along with INR 10.75 crores in their purse.
In a shocking move, SRH went on to acquire the services of Kedar Jadhav, who was earlier unsold in the auction. The Orange Army further strengthened their spin bowling department by recruiting Jagadeesha Suchith and Mujeeb Ur Rahman, who will reunite with his national teammate Rashid Khan.
Strength of Sunrisers Hyderabad
Sunrisers Hyderabad has had a good set of openers since its inception, and this year is no exception. The duo of David Warner and Wriddhiman Saha/Jonny Bairstow has the potential to give a good start to their side.
Another strength of SRH is that they have a good lineup of all-rounders. In fact, the Sunrisers have the greatest number of all-rounders in this year’s IPL. Moreover, with the likes of Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi, SRH has no shortage of good spinners in its spin department.
Weakness of Sunrisers Hyderabad
Despite having a good number of middle-order batsmen, only two SRH players – Manish Pandey and Kane Williamson – have IPL experience.
Sunrisers Hyderabad doesn’t have any big name in its set of finishers, and it may prove as a liability for the side. Although Mohammad Nabi is a good finisher in the squad, he tends to be on the bench in most SRH games.
Players released before the auction
Steve Smith, Ankit Rajpoot, Oshane Thomas, Akash Singh, Varun Aaron, Tom Curran, Anirudha Joshi, Shashank Singh
SRH complete squad
David Warner, Abhishek Sharma, Basil Thampi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Shahbaz Nadeem, Shreevats Goswami, Siddarth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan, Vijay Shankar, Wriddhiman Saha, Virat Singh, Priyam Garg, Mitchell Marsh, Jason Holder, Abdul Samad, Kedar Jadhav, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Jagadeesha Suchith.
Rajasthan Royals (RR)
Inaugural champions Rajasthan Royals made headlines by acquiring the services of Chris Morris for the highest bid in IPL history at INR 16.5 crores.
The Royals also added left-arm pacers Chetan Sakariya and Akash Singh in their squad to strengthen their pace attack. In total, Rajasthan spent a hefty amount of Rs 20 crores to pool in 8 players ahead of the 14th edition of the league.
Strength of Rajasthan Royals
Rajasthan Royals have a good set of overseas players this year. The likes of Jofra Archer and Jos Buttler have transformed the way cricket is played and they will be keen to contribute in the upcoming IPL edition.
The acquisition of promising youngsters like KC Cariappa, Kuldip Yadav, and Shivam Dube has strengthened various departments of Rajasthan Royals.
Weakness of Rajasthan Royals
Rajasthan Royals have two solid overseas all-rounders in the form of Chris Morris and Ben Stokes, but their Indian all-rounders like Mahipal Lomror and Riyan Parag haven’t fared well so far.
Although Rajasthan Royals have strengthened up the left-arm spinning department by recruiting Chetan Sakariya and Akash Singh, their lack of experience could be a challenge for the Sanju Samson-led side.
Players released before the auction
Steve Smith, Ankit Rajpoot, Oshane Thomas, Akash Singh, Varun Aaron, Tom Curran, Anirudha Joshi, Shashank Singh.
RR complete squad
Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Christopher Morris, Shivam Dube, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman, Jofra Archer, Jos Buttler, Mahipal Lomror, Liam Livingstone, Manan Vohra, Mayank Markande, Rahul Tewatia, Riyan Parag, Shreyas Gopal, Robin Uthappa, Jaydev Unadkat, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Anuj Rawat, Kartik Tyagi, David Miller and Andrew Tye, K.C Cariappa, Akash Singh, Kuldip Yadav
Punjab Kings (PK)
Punjab Kings invested heavily to strengthen their fast-bowling department by acquiring the services of Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith for INR 14 and 8 crores respectively.
The Punjab-based franchise also recruited Sharukh Khan and Moises Henriques to bolster their all-rounder unit. Both Khan and Henriques are capable T20 players and will be keen to contribute with both the bat and the ball in the upcoming edition.
Strength of Punjab Kings
Punjab Kings features a good set of openers, and their three-year stats is evident of the fact. Be it KL Rahul and Chris Gayle or KL Rahul and Mayank Agrawal, Punjab’s opening duo has delivered good performances in most games.
Punjab Kings also have a decent all-rounders unit for IPL 2021. For the Kings, Dawid Malan can elegantly handle the middle order, though Malan is an opener.
Weakness of Punjab Kings
The only major problem that Punjab Kings seems to have is with Indian bowlers. Although there are some Indian bowlers in the squad, their lack of experience could be a liability for the Kings.
PK complete squad
KL Rahul, Arshdeep Singh, Chris Gayle, Darshan Nalkande, Harpreet Brar, Mandeep Singh, Mayank Agarwal, Mohammad Shami, Murugan Ashwin, Nicholas Pooran, Sarfaraz Khan, Deepak Hooda, Ishan Porel, Ravi Bishnoi, Chris Jordan, Prabhsimran Singh, Jhye Richardson, Riley Meredith, Shahrukh Khan, Moises Henriques, Dawid Malan, Fabian Allen, Jalaj Saxena, Saurabh Kumar, Utkarsh Singh.
