With the halting of the IPL 2021 tournament, the disappointment that the fans must be going through has no end. Live cricket was the one thing keeping the Indian faithful motivated and cheerful. However, it had to be stopped with the cases of Covid 19 being reported. This did not go down well with the fans, though they had to accept the fact that the BCCI did so for the safety of the players and everyone involved with the tournament.

With that being said, the fans of CSK and RCB would not have been happy with the halting. They were in second and third place, along with the Delhi Capitals, who were on top of the IPL points table. Keeping that in mind, there were some good performances, while others bad.
