One of the only three franchises (in the current season) yet to lift the IPL title, Virat Kohli’s side made a strong start to the 2021 edition and are one of the prime contenders for the trophy. The side was level on points with CSK (10), with five wins in seven matches.
However, the side was forced to make wholesale changes in the squad after a number of players were unavailable for the side, including India’s Washington Sundar who suffered a finger injury during India’s tour of England.
