Weekends are the best times for people to entertain themselves and recharge which is why all the channels pour out entertainment in the two days. The same goes for most popular cricket tournament of the world IPL too. IPL schedules one match every day on the weekdays and two on each day of the weekend so that people can indulge themselves in the cricket storm sans any worries. Like any other weekend, this weekend too, there are two exciting matches on Saturday and two on Sunday.
Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals at 04:00 PM IST Saturday
The first match on Saturday is between MI and RR. With four victories out of six, MI now stands in 3rd place in the points table along with KXIP which shares the same number of points. RR, on the other hand, has only one victory out of 6 and is almost at the bottom of the points table. While Mumbai Indians is strongest of both the teams, experience has taught us that IPL is full of surprises.
Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore at 08:00 PM IST Saturday
KXIP currently stands at 4th position in the points table with 4 victories out of seven. The team has had some surprising victories and unexpected losses. Ravichandran Ashwin, the captain of the team is leading it with a passion that was never seen before. While this is KXIP’s first match against RCB, we can see a great performance from the team given its defeat at the hands of Mumbai in the previous match.
RCB, while being one of the best teams in IPL has failed to win a single match in IPL 12. The team led by Virat Kohli has performed well in some of the past matches but were outperformed. The team’s composition is balanced and the players seemed to be in form but RCB’s fate hasn’t changed in the past six matches. This match with Kings XI Punjab might become a game changer for the team as consecutive losses might act as a strong motivator.
Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings at 04:00 PM IST Sunday
This probably is the most exciting match of the weekend since both the teams are the strongest in IPL 12 and are performing at their best all through the tournament. CSK and KKR had their previous encounter in Chennai on 9th of April in which Chennai had put a stop to KKR’s winning streak. KKR used to be at the top of points table as it had a better run rate and equal points with CSK. With CSK’s victory in the last match, CSK had seized the top position overtaking KKR. The next victory for CSK against Rajasthan Royals had put it 4 points ahead of KKR.
While KKR is destructively motivated to not face another defeat at the hands of CSK, CSK will fight until its last breath to be at the top. As both the teams are provenly strong, their battle will be watch-worthy.
Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Delhi Capitals at 08:00 PM IST Sunday
Another two equally strong teams that are fighting hard to get into the playoffs are Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Capitals. Weaved with fantastic players, both the teams currently stand at equal points (3 each at the time of writing). Delhi Capitals is high on its victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad is tenaciously motivated with its defeat against Kings XI Punjab. Since the match is crucial for both the teams to get ahead, it is only expected that DC and SRH will fight hard for victory. The match is taking place in Hyderabad which can be advantageous to SRH but as it was proven, IPL can surprise us.
