The fourteenth season of the Indian Premier League, VIVO IPL 2021 is set to begin from 9th April, Friday at 7:30 PM IST. Cricket fans are waiting to see how their favorite teams entertain with powerful gameplay, their game strategies, game-changing performances.
Like every IPL, there are eight teams in the IPL 2021 as well– Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Mumbai Indians (MI), Punjab Kings (PBKS- formerly KXIP), Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Rajasthan Royals (RR), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Delhi Capitals (DC), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The Mumbai Indians has won the IPL title five times and has become the most successful team ever. The Chennai Super Kings, also a great team that has delivered consistent performances, has won the IPL Trophy 3 times. Kolkata Knight Riders, a team with many game-changing players, has won the IPL title two times. In the inaugural season of IPL in the year 2008, the Rajasthan Royals had won the trophy but are dealing with a trophy drought now. The Deccan Chargers had won for one time in 2009 and Sunrisers Hyderabad won once in the year 2016. PBKS & RCB are the teams that are yet to taste success in IPL.
Although RCB has not achieved any real success, they have notched up the top two highest team scores ever in IPL History. On April 13th, 2013 Chris Gayle, a record-breaking opener from RCB, had delivered a 175 run unbeaten knock and helped RCB score 263/5 at Bangalore against Pune warriors. Gayle impressed with as many as 17 sixes and 13 fours, coming off just 66 deliveries, and became the man of the match. Gayle hit the fastest century within 30 balls and the highest-ever individual score in a T20 game. Pune Warriors scored just 133/9 and they failed to chase the T20 world record target of 264. It was an unforgettable day in IPL history.
The record for the second-highest team scorers in IPL history also belongs to RCB. In a match against Gujrat lions in 2016 they had made 248/3. The Unbelievable and genius gameplay openers Virat Kohli & AB de Villiers had set the ground ablaze with their legendary sixes and fours. GL had scored 104/10 and hence lost the game. Virat Kohli went on to become the first player in the IPL history to score two centuries against the GL.
They are RCB’s two of the most unforgettable matches so far. The Challengers might win their maiden title this year considering how incredible they have been since the inception of IPL. Many of such incidents have been witnessed in IPL so far and it is not the end. The upcoming IPL tournament might pack more punch than ever and it is beginning from the 9th of April.
