CSK – settled team. UAE form
RCB – sundar/overseas
PK – pooran form/overseas 4
SRH – no Bairstow
KKR – Cummins/Ferg, batting
RR – Jos/Jof/Kiwi Ben.

Chennai Super Kings as per Styris looks a settled team but their poor form in the UAE in the last season should keep them thinking feels the Kiwi. CSK finished seventh in IPL 2020 in the UAE. Regarding RCB Styris said the absence of Washington Sundar and the availability of the overseas players may be a matter of concern. The franchise has roped in as many as four replacements for the UAE leg.
Scott Styris Keeps KKR & SRH In Bottom Four
Punjab Kings, Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad are his the last four picks of the Kiwi cricketer. All the sides need to potentially win all their remaining matches in the second half of the season. SRH are on two points, KKR, four, RR and PBKS on six each.
