What makes the IPL stand above all the other leagues in the world is the sheer fan following it enjoys. Close to 3.5 million people watched the last edition of the tournament from the stands and this beats every other league or tournament in the world.

There are T20 leagues around the world, and there is the Indian Premier League which is in a league of its own. Competitive cricket, brand value, fan following, expert analysis, IPL predictions, or participation of the biggest T20 stars; IPL is miles ahead of any other franchise league in the world. With more than $6 billion dollars in valuation, it is one of the biggest sporting extravaganzas in the calendar. The success with the tournament last year amidst the pandemic was a reflection of the management and professionalism of the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
The 13th edition of the IPL was highly competitive and we expect to see a similar show from all the eight teams in this edition of the tournament that is scheduled to be played from 9th April to 30th May. After it was shifted to UAE last year, the BCCI has decided to bring the cash-rich league back to India. However, the unique aspect of IPL 2021 is that no team will get to play a home game. The teams have done well to rope in some exciting talent in auctions and the excitement is on an all-time high. The 3-time champions, Chennai Super Kings are likely to revamp their squad for the upcoming season which poses a challenge for IPL 2021 predictions. All the experts and punters will need to do thorough research to tackle the uncertainty problem hovering around this franchise.
At Betting Top 10 we have begun our countdown for IPL 2021. We have been successfully covering this tournament for the last few years and take pride in getting 85% of our IPL Predictions right. Our team is on tracking the progress of all the teams and following the news from all the camps.

From betting during the league games or into the competitive playoffs, we would bring to you non-stop action from the IPL throughout the course of the 7-week tournament.
It is always difficult to make predictions for a T20 franchise league as every new season sees changes in the sides. And the upcoming season as well will create fresh opportunities for the sides. But over the years we have seen some of the teams establish themselves as consistent performers in the tournament. For our 2021 IPL cricket prediction let us look at how the sides have fared over the years in this tournament –
|Rohit Sharma is leading the most successful franchise across T20 leagues in the world. They are the most successful team in the tournament’s history with five title wins and would be attempting their third title in a row. They have a bunch of young and exciting cricketers who are well guided by the experienced blokes in the side. The likes of Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Chris Lynn, Suryakumar Yadav, Trent Boult, Kieron Pollard, and Jasprit Bumrah make them a formidable force. Having retained their core group of players for the next season the team would be one to watch out.
|It has been a turnaround for the side in the last two seasons where their stocks have gone up. DC would have been disappointed to have failed at the final hurdle last year. Nonetheless, they are side for the future that boats of young blood. The side has retained the likes of Prithvi Shaw, Kagiso Rabada, Rishab Pant, Shimron Hetmyer, and Ravichandran Ashwin and they have the ability to go the distance in this year’s tournament. After Shreyas Iyer sustained an injury during the ODI series against England, Rishabh Pant has been named the captain of Delhi Capitals for the upcoming season. A change in captaincy will affect the IPL predictions for Delhi Capitals given Pant is quite young and isn’t as promising as a captain.
|2020 was the worst season for MS Dhoni’s side as the team finished 7th on the points table, their worst ever show, and the first time they were not among the Top 4. The side has in the past set standards for consistency. But age seems to have caught up with the team with some mocking them as the dad’s army with most of their key players being on the wrong side of 30. However, they still have few exciting names in Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo, Lungi Ngidi, Sam Curran, Imran Tahir, Faf du Plessis, and Deepak Chahar and shall look to put the disappointment of the last season behind. The new signing of the uncapped player, Krishanppa Gowtham adds more strength to the CSK bowling attack. He is one to watch out for along with the 24-year old opening batsman Ruturaj Gaikwad.
|A star-studded side and the wait for a title win, that’s been the story of Virat Kohli’s side over the years. They did well by their standards in the last season finishing 4th after struggling at the bottom half of the points table in the three previous seasons. Talent has never been an issue for the side that boasts of players like AB de Villiers, Devdutt Padikkal, Kane Richardson, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Navdeep Saini. They always start with new hope every season and we have to wait and see if the Challengers are able to grab the elusive crown this year. The fans have been predicting a title win for RCB almost every year with their famous slogan “E Sala Cup Namde” which translates to “this time the cup is ours”. However, RCB lacks the ability to play consistently throughout the season with the same vigour and enthusiasm as the Mumbai Indians do. Our IPL predictions for this season reckon the cup is likely to continue being a distant dream for Virat Kohli and his team.
|They haven’t moved beyond the 5th position in the last five seasons and finished 6th last year. Great players don’t always play complementary roles and this has been the story for KL Rahul’s side. Though he finished as the top run-getter last season, there was little support from others and the team was a sitting duck in most games it played. Rahul would be looking for a turnaround here and look at the likes of Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Mohammad Shami, Nicholas Pooran, and Chris Jordan to play well as a unit and earn the side its first title win. Cricket punters will need to consider the new additions in the PKS squad – Dawid Malan, Moises Henriques, Jhye Richardson, and Riley Meredith while making thier IPL predictions.
|Champions in 2012 and 2014 the side finished 5th in the last season. Eoin Morgan had to take the leadership role from Dinesh Karthik midway through the last season. Their off-the-field news has dominated the headlines more than their performance and Morgan would have to get the house in order for this edition. He has plenty of exciting players at his disposal and would look at the likes of Sunil Narine, Shubman Gill, Andre Russell, Lockie Ferguson, and Pat Cummins to live up to the challenge as they aim at their third title. They would be the dark horses for this edition of the tournament. However, as the talks of releasing some of the major players in the KKR setup emerge, it looks like the team is about to begin a new chapter in their IPL struggles. As a result, it is only natural and tempting for IPL 2021 predictions to not consider KKR as a major contender for the title.
|The winner of the inaugural title in 2008, the team has never looked the same again. They finished at the bottom of the points table last year and Sanju Sampson who takes over as skipper this year would look to infuse fresh energy into the squad. They have quality players in the camp with big names like David Miller, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, and Rahul Tewatia. It would be interesting to see these players and able to show us exciting cricket and end the 13-year wait for their second IPL title. Bowling all-rounder Chris Morris was the biggest buy of the IPL 2021 auction and along with pace bowlers Andrew Tye and Mustafizur Rahman forms a strong bowling attack.
|David Warner’s side has been playing consistent cricket at the IPL but their inability to win crunch games has cost them dearly since their last title in 2016. Since then they have made it to the playoffs in the last four seasons but have failed in crucial games. They were unlucky last year to have had to deal with injuries to their new-ball bowlers. Warner would like that to end as he leads a team full of promising talent that includes the likes of Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson, Rashid Khan, Manish Pandey, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Mitchell Marsh.
The Indian Premier League 2021 which had to be abandoned midway due to the rise of Covid-19 cases in India would see the next round of games being played in the United Arab Emirates. Here is the updated schedule for the tournament –
The 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League promises to be exciting and the fans in India would eagerly want the league to be back in their own country.
