We are not over the comprehensive victory of MI and are stumped by the ease with which it has jumped up to the top spot. Yesterday’s match has set the perfect weekend mood and what is better than a double header to enjoy the weekend? On Saturday, RR will be facing RCB first at 14:00 local (10:00 GMT) followed by the clash between DC and CSK at 18:00 local (14:00 GMT).
First Clash: RR vs RCB.
Rajasthan Royals second from the bottom of the points table and the players will have to step up their game. With a negative Net run rate, RCB are vulnerable and will have to give their best in the game to keep their play-off chances alive. Both the teams are fresh off losses and that is a reason enough to expect a run-fest.
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli, the captain has scored 304 runs for the team in the last 8 outings and is 3 fours away from completing his 500 IPL fours. Devdutt Padikkal had scored an amazing half-century when RCB faced RR earlier this season and might score big runs today. AB de Villiers needs 46 runs to complete his 5000 IPL runs and will look to do it. Yuzvendra Chahal (11 wickets) and Isuru Udana (7 wickets) might help them restrict the opponents.
Rajasthan Royals: Jos Buttler, in the match against had a short but powerful time on field with a score of 22 runs off 9 balls. This shows that he is in good touch with the bat and might bring runs. Robin Uthappa needs 6 runs to complete 4500 IPL runs and will look to complete that today. Ben Stokes who could not complete his half century in the last match might score it today. Jofra Archer, who was on fire against DC might continue the same against RCB.
Who do you think will win?
Second Clash: DC vs CSK.
Delhi Capitals has looked an unbeatable team in many clashes and is currently second on the points table with six wins from eight matches. CSK on the other hand has not been its usual terrific self and is in the bottom half of the points table. In their last encounter, DC had beaten a rusty CSK by 44 runs easily but CSK seems to have changed tactics and is confident after the win against SRH.
Delhi Capitals: Shreyas Iyer, one of the best captains this season, requires 21 runs to complete 2000 IPL runs. Shikhar Dhawanscored 57 in DC’s last game and might be in the same form in today’s game. In their last face-off, Prithvi Shaw had scored 64 off 43 to help DC set up a win and might do it again. Kagiso Rabada, the star bowler had picked up 3 wickets in their last meeting and is one wicket away from 50 IPL wickets. Will DC be able to stop CSK?
Chennai Superkings: Sam Curran, as an opener scored a quickfire 31 off 21 deliveries in their last game and is a key player for CSK. Ambati Rayadu has scored two successive 40+ runs and is 8 runs away from making 3500 IPL runs. Faf du Plessis has scored 307 runs in this season and continues impress in every clash. Sam Curran, as the bowler has taken the highest number of wickets for the team and might take out a few crucial ones. Are the kings back on track?
