IPL 2021 Points Table

After successfully hosting the 2020 IPL edition in UAE, the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League is currently taking place in the various venues of our country.  The main focus of the teams is to be at the top of the IPL 2021 points table. It might sound like an easy task, but it’s not. With at least one match being played every day, it is quite unpredictable to guess which team will be at the top. It might be one team leading the IPL 2021 points table today and it might be another team the next day. All the eight teams facing each other on the cricket pitch are awarded two points for winning each match while one point is awarded to either team in case of no result. In case of a tie, matches go into a 'Super Over'. The build-up towards the finals is the knock-outs, followed by the 'Play-off', 'Eliminator 1' and 'Eliminator 2'. And finally, the IPL final match, where everyone is on the edge of their seat hoping for their favourite team to win!

Though all the teams are playing exceptionally well, there is one team leading the board while another is down at the bottom. Let us quickly have a look at the IPL 2021 points table-

Indian skipper Virat Kohli bagged it in 2016 after an outstanding play with the bat. David Warner has won the Orange cap award maximum times in the IPL in the years 2015, 2017 and 2019, followed by Chris Gayle in the years 2011 and 2012) Kane Williamson won the title in the 2018 season while handling captaincy duties for the Sunrisers. After Warner in 2019, KL Rahul of Punjab Kings won it for the first time in 2020, scoring 670 runs from 14 matches.
