Top Players to Bet on in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021
Chris Morris (Rajasthan Royals)
When Rajasthan Royals paid a massive Rs 16.25 crore for Chris Morris, he felt the pressure himself. And, why not? He’s the most expensive foreign player ever in the IPL. But if you consider his ability, you won’t be surprised why RR paid that much for him. Morris is a competent all-rounder who can turn a match around by both bat and ball. T20, being the shortest format, desperately needs all-rounders, and Morris just fits the bill for RR. Over the years, he has played for several IPL teams, always making a good impression with both bat and ball.
K.L. Rahul (Punjab Kings)
K.L. Rahul scored 670 runs at an average of 55.8 for Punjab Kings in IPL 2020. While his strike rate of 129.3 was slow compared to other players, who have scored 600+runs, he should be your pick if you want to bet on the batsman who will score maximum runs in IPL 2021. As far as T20 cricket is concerned, Rahul is at the prime of his career. He hits bowlers all over the park, and there’s hardly any flaw in his technique while facing the white ball. Indeed, his batting has not won as many matches for PBKS as he wanted, but he can emerge as the batsman with most runs and win an orange cap in IPL 2021.
Rishabh Pant (Delhi Capitals)
When it comes to IPL, you just can’t ignore Rishabh Pant. This swashbuckling batsman has been so successful for DC that they have retained him since 2016, which is quite long when you consider that most players don’t spend more than a year or two with a team. But, look at his numbers. He has a strike-rate of around 150 and a batting average of around 35. Moreover, his flamboyance makes a significant impact on other players as well. Pant has played a huge role in the turnaround of DC, which for years was not able to perform well. He should definitely be a player to watch out for.
Jasprit Bumrah (Mumbai Indians)
Although Jasprit Bumrah is recognized as one of the best bowlers in world cricket today, he came to the limelight while making his IPL debut at the age of just 19. Since then, he’s been one of the most consistent bowlers of the league. He can bowl yorkers, slower deliveries and also at an extreme pace, much to the chagrin of opposition batsmen. Bumrah has been an asset for MI over the years. Even in the previous edition of the IPL, he took 27 wickets. If you are betting on the bowler who will take maximum wickets and win the purple cap in IPL 2021, then consider Bumrah for sure.
Kagiso Rabada (Delhi Capitals)
Another speedster who’s expected to shine in IPL 2021 is Kagiso Rabada. He’s one of the best bowlers to watch in modern cricket. Every time he bowls, it seems that he will take a wicket. Rabada took the highest number of wickets (30) in IPL 2020, and he’s likely to continue his excellent run in this edition as well. Along with Pant, he’s one of the key players who have turned around the fortunes of DC.
