The sensational season of the VIVO IPL 2021 is coming to a close, and we are all set to go into the playoffs with our four charged-up teams.
The teams qualified for the playoffs went through turmoil in their matches, crashing every other team while learning from the defeats. Our super teams have emerged victorious and have defeated the other four teams to get to the playoffs. The league matches stage is done with Delhi Capitals (DC), Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) making it to the playoffs.
With just four more matches to go, the teams are all amped up for the payoffs. There will be four matches where the winners of Qualifier 1 (Delhi Capitals vs. Chennai Super Kings) will move to the final of the IPL 2021 season.
The loser of Qualifier 1 will get another chance in Qualifier 2, where they will face the winners of the Eliminator (Royal Challengers Bangalore vs. Kolkata Knight Riders). And finally, the winners of Qualifier 2 will then move into the finals to compete with the winners of Qualifier 1, which will be held in Dubai on October 15.
Delhi Capitals are sitting at the top of the table with 20 points and 0.481 as Net Run Rate, and Chennai Super Kings are sitting in the second position with 18 points and 0.455 Net Run Rate. Both the toppers will lock horns and play to go straight into the finals on October 10 in Dubai.
It is noteworthy that Delhi Capitals have beaten Chennai in both matches this season. They will be coming in confident and will start with a mental advantage. However, Chennai has always been a powerful team that is headstrong and has made it to the finals 8 times, out of which they have won the title thrice.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals have appeared five times in the playoffs and have emerged as runner-ups once in 2020.
In the Eliminator, Royal Challengers Bangalore will face Kolkata Knight Riders on October 11 in Sharjah.
KKR made it through the league matches after Mumbai Indians lost against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Kolkata Knight Riders are currently in the fourth position with 14 points and 0.587 Net Run Rate while RCB is in the third position with 18 points and 0.140 Net Run Rate.
When it comes to a head to head of these teams, KKR has won the IPL title twice and have made it to the playoffs four times. Thus, it will be a tough fight for the men in red who have never won the IPL title and have made thrice to the playoffs.
With four teams battling it out in the playoffs, it will be interesting to see which teams finally manage to hold the IPL 2021 trophy.

Players to Look out for in IPL Playoffs
Well, of course, it is a team effort when a team reaches the finals, but some key players give it their all to make a dream come true. Here are some of the players from all four teams whose performances were outstanding in the IPL 2021, and we are looking forward to seeing how well they pull their game off in the upcoming playoffs.
Shikhar Dhawan is India’s ace opener and is a master of the game who is simply a treat to watch in the field. He scored the highest runs for DC with 521 runs in IPL 2019 and 618 runs in IPL 2020.
The team has flourished under Iyer’s leadership, and he has stepped up as a player in the last three years. However, playing with shoulder injuries ahead of IPL matches in 2021 was the toughest for Iyer, but he has and will overcome the same to take the team towards the win.
He has been the most dynamic cricketer and has emerged as one of the highest run-scorers for Delhi in 2018 with 684 runs. This season of IPL 2021 has been the most fantastic year for Pant, and we are looking forward to some fantastic games from him.
Chennai Super Kings
Mahendra Singh Dhoni
MS Dhoni, or as the fans call him, Thala, is the driving force of CSK. Captain cool nerve loses the cool and has taken the team to the playoffs in eleven seasons. We are waiting to see if he can also stir up the same momentum in this IPL season.
He is the highest scorer of Chennai Super Kings and is regarded as the most reliable batsman. With multiple records under his name, Suresh Raina is living under high expectations this season as well.
Faf du Plessis
Du Plessis has proven his worth time and again in both batting and fielding. He is the pillar of CSK, who has always been strong until the finish and is the team’s key player.
Kolkata Knight Riders
He is the West Indian cricketer who has been a vital part of the KKR franchise. He is an ace bowler and has kept the batsmen under his watch in this whole IPL season. We are eager to see if he can get the ball like he always did in the IPL matches.
Shubman Gill has shown tremendous performances this year by hitting some amazing shits in every match of KKR. He is a budding young talent and would surely like to seize this opportunity this year.
One of the most experienced players and reputed finishers in IPL, Dinesh Karthik, has established his mark throughout this season. We hope that his form helps the team win this season.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
India’s most loved cricket player, Virat Kohli, is nothing but the best in his business. He brings the perfect balance to the team and makes sure that he has some surprises up his sleeve every time he comes down to play.
AB de Villiers
AB de Villiers is the best when it comes to cricket. He has the reputation of taking the fielder for a ride all around the ground with his 360° hitting. We are looking forward to him bringing up some amazing performances in IPL 2021.
He has shined in this IPL season and has scored more runs than Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. He will indeed be looking forward to RCB winning, a dream that they dearly desire.
