Kevin Pietersen Reveals Who Has The Biggest Chance Of Winning IPL 2021

On September 19, the Indian Premier League’s second leg will begin with Mumbai Indians taking on Chennai Super Kings, their arch-rivals. Both teams have a reputation for being the most successful in IPL history. Former England captain Kevin Pietersen has stated that CSK has a chance to win another IPL title ahead of the commencement of the UAE leg.

The IPL 2020 season for Chennai Super Kings was a disappointment. They did not advance to the Playoffs for the first time in the tournament’s history. The MS Dhoni-led team, on the other hand, reversed the tables this time and dominated the opening half of the IPL 2021. The squad is presently in second place in the points standings, having won five of the seven games they have played.

As a result, Pietersen stated that CSK’s success in the Indian leg of the IPL 2021 shocked him. He also put his hopes on the squad, claiming that they now have a great chance of winning the championship.

“Everyone had written off CSK’s old boys’ army before the IPL began in April, so watching them perform so well was a pleasant surprise. However, I’m not sure how well this four-month hiatus will have worked out for them. It may take some time for them to get back into gear, especially the older guys. It might be a historic few weeks for the franchise if they are prepared.”  In his recent piece for betway insider, Kevin Pietersen writes, “They have a terrific opportunity of achieving a title that everyone believed was beyond them.”

Losing three or four games is not an option for the Mumbai Indians: Kevin Pietersen

The defending champions, the Mumbai Indians, are presently in fourth position on the points standings, with eight points. The side usually gets off to a sluggish start in tournaments before gaining traction. The Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, cannot afford to lose their first few games, according to Pietersen, because the tournament is almost halfway over.

“They have a tendency to lose their first few games and then improve as the tournament progresses. We’re getting close to the finish of the competition now. Because there is so little time to make up, Mumbai cannot afford to lose three or four games before they begin playing. They must be on it from the first ball if they want to keep their crown. Clearly, they are capable of achieving it, given the skill on their team,” he continued.

WATCH: Rajasthan Royals Respond Amusingly to Scott Syris’ Power Rankings Before of the IPL’s UAE leg

The rest of the IPL 2021 will begin on September 19 in the United Arab Emirates. The cricketing community, as well as onlookers, are all excited to see the action develop. Experts and former cricketers, on the other hand, have been making predictions about the team balance and results before of the event. Scott Styris, a former New Zealand cricketer turned broadcaster, is the most recent addition to the list.

The power rankings of the IPL franchises have been updated by Scott Styris. This isn’t the first time Styris has come up with this sort of thing. He had also forecasted the IPL team rankings in the past. He revealed his ranks on his official Twitter account. Mumbai Indians, the tournament’s most successful team, took the top place in Styris’ standings, as predicted.

The following teams were added to the list: RCB, Punjab Kings, SRH, KKR, and RR. The Rajasthan Royals, who are now in last place, responded to the former New Zealand player.

In the Indian edition of the IPL, the Rajasthan Royals haven’t had the best of luck. The club is presently in fifth place on the points standings, having won three of their seven games. In the UAE leg, the squad will be without Archer, Buttler, and Stokes, who are all out for the remainder of the competition.

As a result, Styris may have placed the team at the bottom of the list. The Rajasthan Royals franchise came forward to respond to Styris after he tweeted the rankings. They responded with a photo from the film Love Aaj Kal, which contains actress Sara Ali Khan’s speech. The wording on the photograph said, “Tum mujhe tang karne lage ho.” This intriguing response drew a lot of attention from Twitter users.


With the IPL’s second half about to begin, RR will be hoping to turn things around this time. The side will be eager to make an impact in the competition, thanks to some fascinating new additions.

CA is not Expecting an Ashes Boycott or a Huge Exodus of English Players, According to Reports

Despite rumours of English players withdrawing from the Ashes owing to Australia’s rigorous COVID-19 rules, CA expects England to field a full-strength team for this summer’s Ashes. It should be emphasised that next week will be crucial for English players, since they will receive a thorough briefing from CA on Australia’s strict quarantine laws.

In a similar vein, CA Chief Nick Hockley indicated that he has not received any information from ECB Chief Tom Harrison regarding a weakened side touring their country for the forthcoming Ashes. CA is still hoping to tour this summer with a full-fledged lineup that was finalised four months ago. Their cricket body, on the other hand, recognises the possibility that some players would withdraw from the series owing to personal reasons.

For similar reasons, several Australian cricketers did not travel to Bangladesh or the West Indies. It was also claimed that certain English players have a strained relationship with the ECB and are hesitant to skip the trip. England’s players are not in the mood to subject their families to a lengthy quarantine.

In both countries, there have been distinct COVID-19 experiences, while in the UK, life has returned to normal following the big vaccination deployment. In Australia, however, strict procedures and quarantine protocols remain in place, which English players and their families are attempting to evade.

The CA will collaborate with the government to ensure a successful cricket summer

“Cricket Australia continues to work closely with the ECB and Australian government officials in preparation for the forthcoming Ashes series, which will be the highlight of one of cricket’s most historic summers. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, CA is “currently preparing the operational requirements of this trip and working with the ECB on the projected make-up of the England touring party.”

“As was the case last season, CA will work constructively and in cooperation with government to offer a summer of cricket while safeguarding the community’s health, wellness, and safety,” the statement said.

Faf du Plessis and Sam Curran are Expected to miss the first match in the UAE leg

The IPL’s second leg will begin on September 19 in the United Arab Emirates. The IPL will resume in 2021, with Chennai Super Kings facing off against arch-rivals Mumbai Indians. CSK, on the other hand, may have to deal with two major setbacks before the competition begins. The team’s two-star players, Faf du Plessis and Sam Curran, are both unavailable, which is causing concern.

Faf du Plessis, a South African batsman, is presently playing in the Caribbean Premier League in the West Indies. He led the Saint Lucia Kings to victory in the tournament. However, due to a groin injury, he was unable to play in the remaining two games.

This has raised questions regarding his fitness and availability for the remainder of the IPL season. A CSK official, on the other hand, has indicated that the team is optimistic that Faf du Plessis will be available for the first match.

“We are sure that Faf du Plessis will be ready to play against the Mumbai Indians in the first match. Our medical staff will evaluate him once he arrives in the UAE for the IPL 2021, but we believe the week off will have aided his recovery. “Faf, along with other CSK players Dwayne Bravo and Imran Tahir, will be here on Thursday (September 16),” according to a Super Kings official, as published by MyKhel.

The CSK official also stated that players arriving from the CPL will not be subjected to quarantine because it is a bubble to bubble transfer.

CSK has begun full-fledged preparations for the second leg of the IPL

CSK was one of the first teams to arrive in the United Arab Emirates to begin their preparations. In the last several weeks, the players have been training at a high level. The English all-rounder Sam Curran, on the other hand, has only recently arrived in the UAE for the competition. However, in the first game, CSK will be without his services.

Curran will be required to stay in quarantine for six days. As a result, he will be unable to take command of the field for the game against the Mumbai Indians. Curran has been a key member of the squad, and his efforts will be vital if CSK are to maintain their winning ways in the IPL’s second leg.

Before the UAE leg of the IPL, Aakash Chopra Offers six Suggestions to the Teams

In a few days, the second phase of the Indian Premier League will begin in the United Arab Emirates, with the first match between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. Former Indian cricketer and pundit Aakash Chopra has offered six intriguing recommendations to all of the teams ahead of the high-profile event.

Chopra’s initial aim was to play just fast pacers and stay away from medium pacers. RCB should avoid playing Harshal Patel in favour of Navdeep Saini and Mohammed Siraj, according to him. Chopra’s second argument was that batting first after winning the toss is the way to go in the UAE, as chasing cannot be the motto, as teams tried it in the 2020 season and failed.

“Do not use medium pacers; instead, use fast bowlers with speeds of above 137-140 kph. Fast bowlers who bowl faster than 140 kph have a higher average, economy rate, and strike rate than slower bowlers. This indicates that the pitches are aiding the speed of the bowlers. So, instead of playing Harshal (Patel), I’d suggest Navdeep and Siraj, who have more speed. “Pick (Josh) Hazlewood over (DJ) Bravo and genuine fast bowlers over swing bowlers,” Chopra stated on his YouTube channel.

Chopra added, as his third suggestion, that teams should select spinners who are faster in the air, such as Varun Chakravarthy and Rashid Khan. Chopra’s fourth argument was that suitable openers should be used against pinch hitters.

The fourth key is to use suitable openers: Aakash Chopra

“The fourth thing is to use good openers. If you’re thinking of starting with pinch hitters or ‘doing something new,’ don’t. The first 30 games here revealed a lot of dot balls at the outset, with at least two wickets falling in the powerplay. In such a situation, appropriate openers with correct approaches are required,” Chopra remarked.

Chopra’s third suggestion was that teams should go with left armers because they were highly effective in the first 30 games, according to his study. The veteran cricketer ultimately advised teams to aim for a total of more than 180 runs when batting first, since anything more than 170-175 becomes hard to chase.

Viral tweet about future CSK captain that was deleted by Ravindra Jadeja

MS Dhoni, the captain of the Chennai Super Kings, is unlikely to play more than one season. When he retires from the Indian Premier League, the Chennai Super Kings will be left with a big hole. 

The Chennai Super Kings can buy another wicketkeeper and a finisher, but they won’t be able to buy a leader like Mahendra Singh Dhoni. During his captaincy, the Chennai-based franchise has reached the Top 4 ten times out of eleven seasons. Only in 2020 did they miss it. 

It is also expected that the Chennai Super Kings will win the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League, with the team firmly positioned in the Top 4 before the UAE leg of the competition. 

Chennai Super Kings fans have been asked on Twitter who will be the team’s captain. Ravindra Jadeja, the star all-rounder of the Chennai Super Kings, responded. 

After offering an opinion, Ravindra Jadeja promptly deleted the tweet 

In the second phase of the Indian Premier League 2021, Ravindra Jadeja recently arrived in the United Arab Emirates to play for the Chennai Super Kings. The all-rounder replied to the following tweet using his jersey number ‘8’. CSK fans asked: 

Who would be your pick to captaining the CSK team after MS Dhoni?

Jadeja tweeted the number 8, which is his jersey number, in response to that question. After deleting the tweet, fans took a screenshot. This screenshot of Ravindra Jadeja’s now-deleted tweet can be seen right here, which was shared by the CSK Fans Army themselves on their Twitter account.

Franchises sign West Indian player as a net bowler for IPL 2021 phase-2

The West Indies’ Dominic Drakes, Fidel Edwards, Ravi Rampaul and Sheldon Cottrell will join the UAE leg of the Indian Premier League as net bowlers. Despite this, it is unclear yet which groups these players will join, since a confirmation from any position will be required. 

Rampaul recently returned to international cricket after the 15-member squad for the T20 World Cup was named, and is now leading the ongoing Caribbean Premier League with 18 wickets at 14.62 and an economy rate of 7.26 in nine games for Trinbago Knight Riders. 

Rampaul played for RCB during the 2013-14 season, taking 14 wickets at 21.29 in 12 IPL games.

Watch: Ali Khan Sends Joshua Da Silva off Aggressively as he points towards the Pavilion

Pacer Trinidad Knight Riders sent off St Kitts and Nevis Patriots opener Joshua Da Silva by pointing aggressively at the pavilion. Da Silva scored 50 runs, including five fours and a six, as the Patriots scored 147/7 in 20 overs.

Trinidad Knight Riders’ Pakistan-born pacer Ali Khan took three wickets in match 30 of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021 against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. 

In 20 overs, TKR restricted SNP to 147/7 with the 30-year-old right-arm pacer. Sherfane Rutherford, Joshua Da Silva, and Fabian Allen lost to USA-based cricketers. Khan’s dismissal by Da Silva went viral due to the wild celebration and send-off he received. 

Khan shouts in joy after dismissing Da Silva, who scored 50 runs for his team, pointing to the dressing room as Da Silva looks at him in disbelief.

Ali Khan had taken 45 wickets at an average of 25.80 in 45 T20s prior to this match. 

SNP captain Dwayne Bravo and Rutherford each scored 25 runs, helping their team score 147 runs in 20 overs.

Brendan Taylor is Retiring from International Cricket!

In Zimbabwe, Brendan Taylor is ending his 17-year career. Against Ireland on Monday, the 34-year-old former captain, who is one of the most recognizable cricketers in his country, will play his final match.

Taylor made his Zimbabwe debut in 2004 and has since become a mainstay of the team. In ODI cricket, he scored 6677 runs from 204 matches, making him tantalisingly close to becoming Zimbabwe’s highest run-getter in the format. He has 11 ODI hundreds, more than any other Zimbabwean.

Taylor announced the news via Instagram on Sunday

It’s taught me to humble, to always remind myself how lucky I was to be in the position I was in for so long. To wear the badge with pride and leave everything on the field.”

“My goal was to always leave the team in a better position as to when I first arrived back in 2004, I hope I have done that.”

From 2011 to 2014, Taylor served as the team’s captain before stepping up to fill the role again earlier this year. He was Zimbabwe’s leading scorer at the 2015 World Cup, but he left the team following the tournament to sign with Nottinghamshire as a Kolpak signing.

In 34 Tests, he scored 2320 runs and in 45 Twenty20 Internationals, he scored 934 runs.

It’s with a heavy heart that I’m announcing that tomorrow is my last game for my beloved country,” he wrote. “17 year’s of extreme highs and extreme lows and I wouldn’t change it for the world.”

Virat Kohli’s captaincy will continue as before, BCCI treasurer confirms

BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal downplayed reports suggesting that Virat Kohli would step down as a skipper following the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. The Times of India reported recently that Kohli would step down as white-ball captain and Rohit Sharma would lead the team in ODIs and T20Is if India fails to win the ICC T20 World Cup in October or November.

However, BCCI treasurer dismissed such claims, quoting the IANS, he said, “This is all rubbish. Nothing (as) such is happening. This is all that you guys (media) are talking about. BCCI has not met or discussed anything on this issue (split captaincy). Virat will remain as the captain (of all formats).

Virat Kohli’s failure to steer the team to victory in the knockout stages of the marquee ICC events despite having some of the world’s best bowlers and batsmen may mean Rohit Sharma will have to step up to lead the side in limited-overs cricket.

Since India’s loss to New Zealand in the World Test Championship final in England, where they were unhappy with Virt Kohli’s selection, BCCI top officials have discussed the issue. Kohli played a couple of spinners during the WTC final in overcast conditions that were seamer-friendly.

“No such meeting took place,” the BCCI treasurer confirms. In 95 One-Day Internationals, Virat Kohli has led India to 65 victories and 27 defeats, for a winning percentage of 70.43. Under his captaincy, India has won 27 T20Is and lost 14. In 10 ODIs, Rohit has led India to eight victories and two losses. He has captained them 19 times in T20Is, and they have won 15 and lost 4.
