- RCB’s 100% winning start to the campaign has been built upon quality batting from Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers. Maxwell has 176 runs to his name and is second only to Shikhar Dhawan in the 2021 IPL runs list. de Villiers top scored in the first game and also made 76* in the victory against KKR. With the ball, Harshal Patel began the tournament with 5-27 against Mumbai Indians and has chipped in with two wickets in both games since.
- Rajasthan Royals, so often an English dominated team, have their South African contingent to thank for their only win. David Miller (62) and Chris Morris (36*) getting them over the lane against Delhi Capitals. With the ball, Chetan Sakariya is leading the way with six wickets, 3-31 against Punjab Kings and 3-36 against CSK.
- RCB’s form has meant they are yet to select overseas players Daniel Sams, Finn Allen, Kane Richardson and Adam Zampa. Rajasthan Royals have not played Australian Andrew Tye in any of their three games.
