The IPL teams that have a good batting lineup have half their job done and with the IPL 2021 to be held in India with flat wickets mostly, batting is going to be a key factor. In the past, we have seen that teams with good batting lineup have cherished success often and this year is going to be no different.
The IPL 2021 Auction witnessed one of the most interesting buys as the teams went all out for certain particular stars who can turn the game on its head. Glenn Maxwell despite his poor record in the last few years in the IPL was bought by the RCB for prize money of 14.25 crore which is a high risk. All-rounders have always had a liking from the teams, and Chris Morris due to his all-around abilities became the most expensive player in the IPL history.
IPL 2021: Rating All 8 Teams On The Basis Of Their Batting Line Up:
8. Rajasthan Royals – 6.5/10
Rajasthan Royals are a team that relies too much on overseas contingent and they have got a pretty inexperienced Indian outfit. They have bought Shivam Dube to bolster their batting lineup but still looks like a lot of holes are there in the batting. With Samson taking over as the new captain, they will need a lot more contributions from the middle order. Their only positive was the efforts of Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag who won them matches splendidly but couldn’t do it consistently.
They have been changing their batting order for so long and they ended with Ben Stokes and Robin Uthappa as their openers. Uthappa has been traded now to CSK, which means they will have to open with Manan Vohra or Yashasvi Jaiswal alongside Ben Stokes. If they open with Sanju Samson, they have to bring in an Indian batsman like Mahipal Lomror in the middle order which makes it even tough for them in IPL 2021.
