With the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League moving into the playoff stage, the franchises have given their best. Like the last year, the playoffs spots were filled at the end of the final league game. This time too, there were so many memorable moments.
Mumbai Indians is knocked out of the tournament. The huge task of winning the match against SRH by a margin of 171 runs was practically impossible. But, they managed to defeat them, thanks to Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav’s knocks.
PBKS lost matches they should have won, and RR, as usual, failed to maintain consistency. CSK has somehow lost momentum, too, as they have lost three consecutive games. Adding on, DC, RCB have been extremely good in terms of performance.
Here are the best and worst players from each team in IPL 2021 league stage:
DC: Best Player- Prithvi Shaw, Worst Player- Lalit Yadav
Prithvi Shaw has finally found his mojo this IPL. Although his second leg of the IPL has been a bit bland, he has done enough for DC. This is mainly because of his strike rate.
Of the 255 balls he has faced, he has been scoring at a strike rate of 157.25. This means the targets of the 150s or 160s are chased down with ease. He had smashed six boundaries in an over to decimate KKR during the first half. Well, in this situation, someone like Dhawan could take his time to build his inning.
Talking about their worst performer, it has to be Lalit Yadav. Not because of his bowling, but because of his batting. Being a middle-order batsman, he has been scoring at a strike rate of just 93.15. As Delhi’s middle-order already has the services of Iyer, there is no point in playing Lalit Yadav.
