As your favorite destination for IPL match predictions and IPL betting tips let’s offer you some insights into this season and make our predictions. This analysis is based on performance in the previous seasons and strengths of the teams.
IPL has always been a very competitive tournament and hence it can be interesting to stick the neck out and predict the final contest at the start of the season. With several players coming to this tournament after long breaks it can be even more challenging to predict the winner. The teams change, players drop in form and hence making a prediction for Indian Premier League final 2021 is a big bet. Yet we have been following the teams closely and also kept a watch on the player auctions. Here are the three teams we believe have the best chances of making it to the final of the 2021 Indian Premier League
|Ask the fans who will win the IPL and most are likely to say Mumbai Indians. The reigning champions and winners of four titles in the last six seasons and they would definitely be the team to watch out for this season as well. They are the most successful team in the history of the tournament with five title wins and shall be aiming for their sixth overall and third in a row. The side has a strong batting core led by skipper Rohit Sharma with the likes of Quinton de Kock, Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav adding to the strength. Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard check the all-rounders’ list perfectly. With Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult and Rahul Chahar manning the bowling department, the side has all the bases covered and is the without doubt the strongest team in the tournament.
|If there is one team that has made the headlines over the last two seasons despite not winning the title; it surely had to be Delhi Capitals. Over the last two seasons this young side has overwhelmed opponents. This is great for a team that has never won a title so far and was used to finishing at the bottom half of the points table in its previous moniker of the Delhi Daredevils. While the loss of their regular skipper Shreyas Iyer due to injury is a big loss for the side, they are being led by a confident and energetic Rishab Pant. With the likes of Steven Smith, Shimron Hetmyer and Shikhar Dhawan in the side they have good strength in the batting. With the ball Ishant Sharma, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje make it a potent attack. If there is one team that can deliver a body blow to the Mumbai Indians, it is Delhi Capitals.
|They have been quite for few seasons but David Warner is leading one of the best squads for the season. Their campaign last year was marred by injuries yet the side had done well to reach the final stages. They had won the title back in 2016 and since then have been one of the most consistent sides in the IPL. Apart from Warner the side also boasts of having good strength in the batting with players like Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey and Jonny Bairstow. It is their bowling attack that gives edge to the side with the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan and Mujeeb ur Rahman in the team. They may lack the star power when compared to some of the other two sides but compensate it with their consistency. They have the resources to go the distance and win their 2nd IPL title.
These are the three teams we would have our money on to win the tournament and we could see the title contest between two of these three sides. If we are to pick two of the sides for the final we would go for a repeat of the title game in the previous season where the Mumbai Indians triumphed over the Delhi Capitals. They are without doubt two of the strongest sides in the tournament and would start at the top in the list of outright winners for the season.
Mumbai Indians VS Delhi Capitals
Apart from these three two other teams would be considered the dark horses for the season. Kolkata Knight Riders finally seem to have a settled side to begin with and Eoin Morgan with his tactical brilliance and a strong batting core can take the team to the finals of the season. Royal Challengers Bangalore is another side that we would have our eyes on as Virat Kohli’s side has the batting resources and if they are able to spin some magic with the ball the side may grab the IPL title that has eluded them for so many seasons.
