Punjab Kings Captain KL Rahul has Asked the Owners to let him Join Another Team

IPL 2021 is in its last stage and the season has its fair share of ups and downs.

Facing the initial matches in the country, the tournament had to shift to UAE because of the situation with Covid-19 in the country during the respective time. The change in the situation did not seem to do very well for the batsman and a lot of teams and their batsman had to suffer on a huge account. It included teams such as Mumbai Indians, Punjab Kings, Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

With two new teams joining the tournament with the mega auction coming in the coming month things might take different turns especially when the game returns to India in the next season.

Amidst all of this, there are reports that the captain of Punjab Kings, KL Rahul has secretively requested the franchise to release him ahead of the mega auction. KL Rahul is currently the orange cap holder with the leading run scorer in the present ongoing IPL season. He is also part of the Indian team for the T20 World Cup 2021.

The reports state that KL Rahul is interested in joining Royal Challengers Bangalore as a team and the franchise is also interested in him as they are looking for a new captain and a fiery batsman and KL Rahul seems to fit the bill. Along with that, KL Rahul is a Bangalorean. His family shifted there many decades ago and this move would be beneficial for both him and the team making it a hot topic of discussion for all.

IPL 2021 – This Star Cricketer’s Rumoured Girlfriend Reacts to his Fifty

This season of the IPL has not been so great for Ishan Kishan. The cricketer has not managed to score so well getting out at a low score in the tournament.

One can witness his condition from the way he shed tears after the match against RCB. One could see Virat Kohli approaching him after the match and consoling him.

Ishan seems to have recovered from this phase. The 23-year-old cricketer scored a fifty in the last game of Mumbai Indians against Rajasthan Royals. He was seen being brutal towards the bowlers with a strike rate of 200.0, scoring 50 out of 25 balls during the run chase. This included 5 fours and 3 sixes making Mumbai Indians win the match against Rajasthan Royals easily with 8 wickets in hand.

Amidst the win, Kishan’s rumoured girlfriend Aditi Hundia attracted the limelight with a story of her’s on Instagram. It involved a selfie of hers along with the caption “God’s delays are not God’s denials.” It was followed with a blue heart and joining hands emoji.

There have been rounds of her supporting her love towards Mumbai Indians.

Ishan in his talks stated that he has gained his confidence back. He credits the same to talking and chatting with the senior players that helped him in great regard. He in his post-match presentation stated, “I feel ups and downs are a big part of any sportsman. I was also not in good shape. Most of our batters were not getting runs like in previous seasons.”

“We had great support staff. Our captain [Rohit Sharma] too. In fact, I chatted with Virat bhai and Hardik Bhai, and everyone was there to support me.”

Aakash Chopra Makes Huge Prediction Regarding KKR

On Thursday, September 23, the Kolkata Knight Riders extended their winning run by registering an emphatic victory against the Mumbai Indians in Abu Dhabi. To demonstrate their supremacy and get into the top four of the points table, KKR outplayed MI in the last match. Aakash Chopra, a former Indian cricketer and pundit, was tempted to make two big predictions as a result of this.

MI got off to a good start, but KKR held the side to a total of 155 runs in the first innings. Venkatesh Iyer, in pursuit of the goal, once again demonstrated his dominance by scoring a ferocious half-century in the process. Against MI, Rahul Tripathi blasted the bowlers all over the place to put up a stunning unbeaten 74-ball century. They further managed to beat the Punjab Kings with six wickets in hand and one over left to spare.

KKR earlier earned a dominant victory over RCB

Following KKR’s impressive victory, Aakash Chopra went to his official Twitter account to declare that the team will go to the finals of this year’s Indian Premier League. Chopra also made another startling prediction, stating that he would not be shocked if Mumbai Indians, the five-time IPL winners, do not qualify for the playoffs this season.

The first half of the Indian Premier League had to be halted because of Covid’s entry into a few training camps. For a few teams, it was anticipated that this break would go smoothly, allowing them to close any gaps in their side’s defence. In this way, it seems like KKR has gained from the hiatus since they have come back stronger in the IPL’s UAE leg of the tournament.

KKR took on Royal Challengers Bangalore in their opening encounter of the UAE leg. The bowlers of the side completely dismantled RCB’s formidable batting lineup. Varun Chakravarthy and Andre Russel each took three wickets, causing problems for the Royal Challengers Bangalore batsmen. Lockie Ferguson, who took two wickets in the contest, was also a very economical bowler.

No RCB hitter was able to muster enough resistance, as the club was dismissed for 92 runs. When KKR came out to bat, they immediately seized control of the field, with their openers putting the team into a winning position. In the second innings, Shubman Gill fell only two runs short of his half-century, while Venkatesh Iyer stunned the cricketing world with an unbroken 41-run performance. The match was won by KKR by nine wickets.

Sanjay Manjrekar Was Shocked By CSK’s Decision Regarding Dwayne Bravo

Former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar was “surprised” when Dwayne Bravo was selected by the Chennai Super Kings for the encounter against the Mumbai Indians in the 30th Indian Premier League match. The veteran voiced his surprise, claiming that the Bravo hasn’t bowled in a long time. Dwayne Bravo led the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots to their first Caribbean Premier League title earlier this month. He scored 145 runs and took eight wickets in the competition. The 37-year-old veteran, though, was forced to miss two games due to injury.

He hasn’t bowled a single over in the last four games since returning from injury. Bravo was also the most costly of the Patriots’ regular bowlers, with an economy rate of 9.49. Bravo’s selection was questioned by Manjrekar, who believed the latter was not entirely fit.

Sanjay Manjrekar has some thoughts on the inclusion of Dwayne Bravo in the CSK team which he shared with ESPNcricinfo

Manjrekar also said CSK made the right decision in selecting Josh Hazlewood over South Africa’s Lungi Ngidi.

“They reasoned that Hazlewood would profit more than someone like Lungi Ngidi on the surface. It is an excellent decision, in my opinion. Shocked, Dwayne Bravo is on the team since I heard he had bowling problems. Despite concerns about his total fitness, am shocked CSK chose him.”

Manjrekar also believes that Faf du Plessis’ return to fitness will help CSK. He added, “It is fantastic news for CSK that Faf du Plessis is back in action after his groin injury.”

While playing for the Saint Lucia Kings in the CPL, Du Plessis had a leg injury and missed a few games. Against the Patriots, he also hit a century. The former South Africa captain scored 277 runs in nine CPL games at an average of 34.62 and a strike rate of 143.52.

In the game versus MI, Du Plessis didn’t have a particularly good performance. He went out to Trent Boult after bagging a duck. Bravo, on the other hand, hit three sixes and scored 23 runs off eight balls to help CSK record a daunting total of 156.

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.

WATCH THE POST:

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.

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.
