The IPL fever is again going to hover over the minds of Indian cricket fans with the forthcoming 14th edition. IPL 2021 is a much-awaited cricket tournament for Indian cricket lovers as the event will be played in India, unlike the last season which took place in UAE due to Covid 19 epidemic.
Also, fans will also be allowed to enter the stadium to cheer for their teams, something which was missing during the last season.

Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, Punjab Kings, Rajasthan Royals, and Sunrisers Hyderabad are the teams that will try to impress their fans with their performances in IPL 2021.
After IPL 2021 auction, there are some minor changes in the teams’ squad. Also, there are a few well-known cricketers who are going to make a debut in IPL 2021. Since IPL comprises a close competition among the teams, there is a nail-biting battle for the top positions on the points table.
Only the top four teams qualify for playoffs and get a chance to reach the finals. The bottom four teams on the points table have to end their journey in the tournament. Here we will predict the four teams that will lurk in the bottom half of the points table in IPL 2021.
IPL 2021: Predicting The Four Teams That Will Lurk In The Bottom Half Of The Points Table
Royal Challengers Bangalore
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) managed to fix a spot in the playoffs last season in IPL 2020 after a close competition with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). RCB had a better net run rate which helped the team to grab the 4th spot in the points table. However, they lost the very next Eliminator match to Sunrisers Hyderabad which ended their journey in the tournament.
In IPL 2021 auction, RCB bought Glenn Maxwell who was a crucial buy. However, the team did not buy some experienced pace bowlers. Kyle Jamieson was one bowler which the franchisee bought during the auction. However, the New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson will make a debut in IPL 2021. Hence, the team cannot put absolute trust in him in the bowling department. RCB do not have experienced pace bowlers in the team which will hamper their performance in IPL 2021. They are expected to lose out qualification to playoffs in IPL 2021.
