The Team is all packed with fantastic batters, from openers to lower-order batters. The middle-order batsmen are the winning catapult of the Team.

The Team has performed tremendously well in all the IPL series, so we hope that Team can sustain that pressure.

The most catches record by a player in the IPL series is also in David Miller’s name. In 84 matches or 84 innings, he took 53 catches.
The most wickets in IPL series history are taken by Piyush Chawla. In 87 matches, he took 84 wickets
The most ducks record is in the name of Glen maxwell. In 57 matches or 55 innings, the player got ducked 9times.
The lowest team total in IPL history is also King’s 11 Punjab name. In the year 2017 IPL, the team made 73 runs against Rising Stars Pune.
The highest team total in an IPL match is 232 runs made by the kings 11 Punjab in 2011 IPL against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Kings 11 Punjab’s Virender Sehwag scores the highest individual score by any player in 2014 IPL against Chennai Super Kings. He made 122 runs in 58 balls.
The record of most sixes in IPL history is in the name of David Miller. In 79 matches, he scored 87 sixes.

The record of most runs in the history of the IPL series is also in the name of Marsh. In 70 matches, he secured 20 times half-century and above. He also scored a century and once. He scored overall 2477 runs in IPL history.
The top-order batsmen of Kings Punjab like KL Rahul, Mayank Aggarwal, Chris Gayle are powerful contenders for every opponent they face.
The middle order of Punjab kings with Nicholas Pooran is expected to be replaced by David Mallan. However, Punjab kings have roped in Mallan, the world’s number one T20I batsman, but the team is almost full of big names struggling to adjust Mallan in the team order. Punjab Kings has an exceptional batting lineup from top to bottom with various domestic and foreign top-notch batters.
But the bowling lineup of the franchise is fragile. Mohammed Shami is the only bowler with regular IPL exposure. Most of the recruits have not much IPL experience. Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith, Fabian Allen, Ishan Porel, KC Cariappa, and Jalaj Saxena lack the crucial IPL experience.
History: The franchise team Chennai Super Kings of the Indian Premier League represents the capital city of Tamilnadu, Chennai. The team franchise was introduced in the auction of IPL’s first season in 2008. The home ground of the CSK( Chennai Super Kings) is Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. The team was suspended from IPL for two years(2015 and 2016) due to the owners’ involvement in the 2013 IPL betting case.
The team has won the IPL title thrice.
Franchise And Sponsors
Chennai Cements bought the original franchise of Chennai Superkings for 91 million USD. Being the vice-chairperson and Managing Director of Chennai Cements, ICC chairman N. Srinivasan was the team’s de facto owner.
However, the Supreme Court of India, in its ruling in 2015, debarred any cricket board official from holding the owner of any franchise team of IPL; this leads to transferring of the franchise to a new entity by the name of Chennai Super Kings Cricket Ltd.
The current value of CSK is around 104 million USD, the second-highest after Mumbai Indians.
Initially, CSK has managed to arrange a wallet of 22.9 crores for the EPL 2021 auction. But after trading Utthapa from Rajasthan Royals at a whooping amount of 3crores, only 19.9 crores were left in the CSK purse. From this 19.9 crore, CSK bought the following squad for IPL 2021.
Retained players – M.S. Dhoni, 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.

CSK In News
Chennai Super Kings CEO Kasi Vishwanathan has also confirmed the development that Ngidi will join the MS Dhoni-led squad only after April 05.
CSK recently unveiled their new jersey ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season, which has three stars above the team logo.
Josh Hazelwood withdrew from CSK due to some personal reasons.
• Successful Run Chase- 206 Runs Chase Vs. RCB( in 2013)
Most Catches- Suresh Raina (91)
Most Wickets- Dwayne Bravo (104)
Some Records of CSK in IPL history-
• The team also has the highest winning percentage of 61.28 among all the eight franchise teams.
• Captain Dhoni holds the record of maximum time captaincy of a single team record.
• Dwayne Bravo took 32 wickets in 18 matches. This is the most fantastic bowling record of IPL history.
• The team played in the final for maximum times.
The CSK has an incredible batting lineup with the players like Dhoni, Faf du Plessis, Robin Uthappa, Ravindra Jadeja, Ambati Rayudu, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, and Ruturaj Gaikwad. K Gowtham. They all have IPL batting experience. The team missed Suresh Raina in the middle order batting lineup the previous season, but Suresh Raina is also in the squad this season.
Bowlers like Lungi Ngidi, Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir, and Deepak Chahar also strengthen the team’s bowling order.
The only concerning thing is the playtime gap of some players. Dhoni, Raina, Tahir, Rayudu are coming to the game after a gap time. It will be interesting to see if these players have lost the grip of the game or not.
The team has relied chiefly on spinners in past seasons, but the current venue of IPL 2021 is not spinner-friendly.
So, overall the team squad is very apt, but they will be able to perform stupendously on some particular venues is questionable.
History: Rajasthan Royals is one of the founding franchise teams of the Indian Premier League. The team represents the state of Rajasthan. Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur, is the home ground of RR. Despite being considered one of the weakest IPL Rajasthan Royal team, it won the first ill trophy of 2008. Various scams and conspiracies have surrounded the team.

The pink jersey of this team represents the pink city of Jaipur. Initially, the team adorned blue themed jersey but later replaced them with new pink jerseys.
BCCI, in 2010 expelled two teams, namely Punjab kings and Rajasthan Royals. The franchise team alleged BCCI for foul play, and it went to Mumbai High Court. Later on, Rajasthan Royal decided to pursue the case with any arbitrator. Finally, the Mumbai High Court dissolved the matter. BCCI, after facing huge financial and reputation losses, decided to allow both the teams, Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings, to remain part of IPL.
In 2015, after the Lodha Committee’s inquiry regarding fictitious bidding procedure, while violating the BCCI norms, Rajasthan Royals’ team was banned from IPL for two seasons of 2016 IPL and 2017 IPL. The team owner Raj Kundra was prohibited for a lifetime from the team.
Franchise and Sponsorship

Other investors include Lachlan Murdoch, Aditya S Chellaram, and Suresh Chellaram. The Chairman of the franchise is Ranjit Barthakur. The shareholding of the franchise owners is as follows-
Manoj Badale (32.4%)
Amisha Hathiramani (44.2%)
Lachlan Murdoch (11.7%)
After releasing previous players, left with a salary cap of 34.85 crores, the franchise bought eight players for IPL 2021. The franchise also holds the record of making the highest ever bid for a player in IPL history. Chris Morris is the highest ever bought a foreign player in IPL history with a whopping amount of 16.25 crore. The franchise bought five domestic and three foreign players amounting to a total of 24.20 crores.

Sanju Samson (Captain, Wicketkeeper)
David Miller, Liam Livingstone, Chris Morris,
Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer, Andrew Tye, Mustafizur Rahman
Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Anuj Rawat, Sanju Samson, Riyan Parag, Shivam Dube, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Shreyas Gopal, Kartik Tyagi, Andrew Tye

The most potential opening order batsmen of RR are Josh Butler, Yeshashwi Jaiswal, Ben Stroke, Manan Vohra. Ben Stokes has played well as an opener in the previous IPL season. Manan Vohra was on the bench in last year’s IPL for Rajasthan Royals, but he has played well for Punjab Kings when given a chance. Josh Butler has a good performance against India in international matches. Anuj Rawat, Riyan Parag, Chrish Morris performed well In Vijay Hazare Trophy.
As far as spinners are concerned, Shreyas Gopal, Rahul Tewatiya, Mayank Markande can require acceleration. The new inclusion of KC Carrippa is also in the team, giving a good spinning jest to the team.
Chris Morris, Jofra Archer, Ben Stokes, Mustafizur Rehman, Kartik Tyagi, the Rajasthan Royals have these allrounders and fast bowlers in plenty for this IPL 2021.
Mustafizur Rehman is expected to cover the whole death bowling area. If Jofra Archer and Chris Morris play together, it can be a blizzard game for the IPL 2021. Chris Morris and Kartik Tyagi are also suitable for death over. This team’s main strength is the overseas players of outstanding quality.
The main weakness of Rajasthan Royals is the spinners, as most of the spinners of Rajasthan Royals are wrist spinners, so the team lacks the required leg spinners and finger spinners which can highly impact the team endeavors of winning the trophy. Moreover, there is no Indian mainstream good quality player in the team, except Sanju Sampsons. The middle order of the team is also not good experiencewise.

Kolkata Knight Riders Preview
KKR are struggling to win the IPL trophy post-Gautam Gambhir era. Though the franchise has retained 17 of its players, some additions can prove themselves change bearer to the team. With world cup winner skipper Eoin Morgan is now the full-time captain of KKR. The franchise now has the grease of Ben Cutting and Shakib Al Hasan like all-rounders. The team pacers spearhead includes Pat Cummins and Lockie Ferguson. But the team spinning ledger is relatively shallow as Kuldeep Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy, Sunil Narine are not in good form. However, some players like Harbhajan Singh, Subham Gill, Vaibhav Arora, Venkatesh Iyer, and Dinesh Karthik gravely need this IPL2021 opportunity to keep themselves up in the game.
The franchise of Delhi Capitals was auctioned in 2008 IPL by the BCCI. The team represents the capital city of India, Delhi NCR. The team has not won any trophy yet. After a gap of 12 years, the team faced Mumbai Indians in IPL 2020 final. The team qualifies for the IPL playoffs in 2019 for the first time in seven years. Initially, the team was named Delhi Daredevils but in 2018 franchise and sponsor decide to change the name to Delhi Capitals, as they believe that Delhi is the capital city and India’s power center.
Rishabh Pant also holds the record of being the only Indian player to score the highest in IPL all seasons.
Most sixes- Rishabh Pant (94 sixes)
Lowest team total- 67runs vs. Punjab (IPL 2017)
Highest team total- 231/4 vs. Punjab (IPL 2011)
Most half-century- Virender Sehwag (18 half-centuries)
Rishabh Pant- 1
David Warner- 1
Sanju Samson- 1
Most wickets- Amit Mishra; 90 wickets in 85 matches
Most runs- Virender Sehwag (From IPL2008- to IPL2013); in 86 matches, 2382 runs
The Capitals have a fantastic fast bowlers combo in Kagiso, Canada’s name (previous year purple cap winner), and Anrich Nortje. Other notable fast bowlers include world cup 2019 winner Chris Woakes, Marcus Stoinis, and Tom Curran. In the domestic fast bowlers, the team has Umesh Yadav, Lukman Meriwala, and Avesh Khan.
The team doesn’t have any Indian alternative for the wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant. If Pant misses any match, then taking any foreign player in his spot can disharmonize the team’s balance.
The spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin and Amit Mishra don’t have any alternative for them, and as we have witnessed, how often these two spinners got injured in the last few years do raise some concerns for the spinning zone of the team. However, Pravin Dubey, M Siddharth, Axar Patel are some spinners options in the team, but except Axar Patel, no other spinner is in good form.

Analysis for Cup Winner Team
If we compare both teams, we can easily derive that the batting lineup of RCB is stronger than CSK. CSK has more world-renowned solid all-rounders. The bowling line of RCB is almost the same as CSK. The top-order batting line of RCB is stronger than CSK, as most of the players of RCB are playing cricket continuously. At the same time, most CSK openers aren’t playing cricket regularly.
The middle batting order of RCB is also more substantial than CSK with AB Devilliers. The middle order of CSK, with Dhoni being out of practice for a long, sam Curran, Ambati Royudu are also not in good form. The lower-order batting lineup of CSK is more robust as compared to RCB. With Shardul Thakur and Imran Tahir’s availability as lower-order batsmen, CSK has the edge over RCB.
The bowling lineup of RCB is weak. Mohammed Siraj and Harsha Patel are some inexperienced bowlers of the RCB.
