The second leg of the IPL 2021 is all set to start in a couple of days and cricket lovers are quite excited as they will be able to see their favourite cricketers once again on the field fighting for the IPL trophy.
The IPL 2021 was originally held in India in the month of April but it had to be postponed midway after the country got hit by the second wave of COVID-19. When the league got postponed, Delhi Capitals was at the top with 6 wins in 8 matches followed by Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians at the second, third and fourth positions, respectively.
Recently, the former Kiwi cricketer Scott Styris took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and posted the power rankings of the IPL teams and Mumbai Indians which is the most successful IPL team is once again at the top spot in the rankings of Styris.
Delhi Capitals which has been performing superb in the IPL 2021 till now is at the second spot while the second most successful IPL team Chennai Super Kings is at the third spot followed by Royal Challengers Bangalore at the fourth position. As per Scott Styris, Rajasthan Royals will be at the last spot in the table.
This is what the former New Zealand cricketer tweeted,

This was not the first time that Scott Styris came up with the rankings of the IPL teams as he has shared them earlier as well.
Rajasthan Royals decided to react on this matter but in a funny way as it shared a meme from Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan starrer “Love Aaj Kal 2”. The image featured Sara Ali Khan delivering the dialogue, “Tum mujhe tang karne lage ho” (you have started troubling me).
Here is the meme:

Rajasthan Royals is presently at the fifth spot with 3 wins in 7 matches that it has played but it will be missing some of its star players such as Jofra Archer, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler.
It will be interesting to see whether Scott Styris is proved correct or not. What do you think?
