Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, dealt their chances a major blow by failing to chase down 127 against Kings XI Punjab. With eight points from 11 matches, their chances of progressing to the play-offs are wafer thin.
Punjab roared back to the top four of the points table after an easy win against Kolkata. Mandeep’s 66*(56) and Gayle’s 51(29) was too much for the KKR bowlers to handle as Punjab registered their fifth win on trot.
With not much to lose, CSK played freely today, and as a result walked away with a comfortable win over RCB, who would have hoped to top the table after winning. Gaikwad 65*(51) and Rayudu 39(27) starred with the bat as CSK chased down 145 with 8 balls to spare.

Second-placed Delhi Capitals will look to get back on the winning track when they face fourth-placed Kolkata Knight Riders in the 42nd match of IPL 2020 at Abu Dhabi on Saturday. Well placed with 14 points from 10 matches, Delhi came up with a half-hearted effort against the ever-improving Kings XI Punjab in their previous encounter to go down by five wickets.

The Chennai Super Kings were handed their first 10 wicket loss at the hand of their arch rivals Mumbai Indians. Boult (4-18) and Bumrah (2-25) restricted CSK for 114 before Kishan’s blistering 68*(37) took them home with more than seven overs to spare.
Sunrisers Hyderabad registered a crucial win to keep themselves in the hunt for playoffs as they chased down 154 comfortably against the Rajasthan Royals, whose chances are looking bleak now.

The two teams who kicked off IPL 2020, Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings, will clash again in match number 41 of the tournament at Sharjah on Friday.

Chennai are languishing at the bottom of the points table with only three wins from 10 matches. Mumbai, on the other hand, are in the top three with six wins from nine games.

They will take on under-performing Sunrisers Hyderabad in match number 40 of IPL 2020 at Dubai on Thursday. SRH go into the game having suffered a Super Over defeat at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders, thanks to a stupendous bowling effort by Lockie Ferguson. Despite experiencing contrasting fortunes in their last encounter, both Rajasthan and Hyderabad are aware that their chances of play-off qualifications remain slim. While RR are at sixth position with eight points, SRH are seventh with six points.
Vengeance of 2017 is what this match is called now. Back then, RCB were skittled for 49 by KKR’s pace attack and this time it was RCB’s turn to return the favour. Mohammed Siraj registered impressive figures of 3-8 as KKR could manage only 84.
Punjab won their third match in a row, after beating the top three teams in the points table - Bangalore, Mumbai and now Delhi.

After three supers overs in the previous day, we had a rather mundane game at our hands as CSK could manage only 125 on two paced pitch in Abu Dhabi. Even though Rajasthan were rocked early, Buttler and Smith combined to make light work of the chase.
A thriller, a nail biter, a humdinger - call it whatever you want. We experienced some unprecedented situations as not only the match was tied, but the super over was also tied and we had another super over to decide the winner. Eventually, it was Punjab who managed to get over the line as they edged past RR and CSK to reach the 6th spot on the points table.
Struggling to find consistency, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will take on each in match number 37 of IPL 2020 at Abu Dhabi on Monday.

Further, both sides go in having lost their previous match. CSK went down to favourites Delhi Capitals by five wickets while Rajasthan were undone by Royal Challengers Bangalore by seven wickets. Neither side can afford to slip from here.
We witnessed a last over thriller in Abu Dhabi as both the teams were tied at 163 at the end of their 20 overs. Lockie Ferguson, playing his first game of the season, picked up three wickets in the regular innings and two in the super over as KKR somehow managed to get over the line.
It will be the battle of contrasting fortunes when Mumbai Indians take on Kings XI Punjab in match number 36 of IPL 2020 at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday. With six wins in eight matches, including the last five in a row, Mumbai are well on their way to progress to the play-offs. KXIP, in contrast, have been below ordinary despite their openers skipper KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal being the top two run-getters in IPL 2020 so far. They would be glad to have broken the losing jinx against RCB though, the only team they have beaten in this year’s edition so far

Despite the change in leadership, there was not much improvement in Kolkata Knight Riders’ performance as they went down to Mumbai Indians by eight wickets in their previous encounter. Of course, it will be unfair to expect miracles from Eoin Morgan as he took over the reins from Dinesh Karthik the day KKR were to face Mumbai. Sunrisers Hyderabad too would be worried after two losses in a row. They just haven’t been able to find the desired consistency this season, owing to some form issues combined with injury problems.
Delhi Capitals will look to carry on their good form when then take on an inconsistent Chennai Super Kings in match number 34 of IPL 2020 at Sharjah in the evening game of the Saturday double-header.

Royals, on the other hand, are just above bottom-placed KXIP, with three wins in eight games. They go in having lost to Delhi Capitals twice in a week, the latest being by 13 runs.
In an interesting development in the Kolkata Knight Riders camp, Dinesh Karthik has decided to handover the captaincy of the franchise to England's World Cup-winning skipper Eoin Morgan.

David Warner and Jonny Bairstow starred with the bat as the Sunrisers Hyderabad posted 201. For the Kings XI Punjab, it was Pooran who fought a lone battle with a sparkling 77, but with little support from his fellow batsmen, his side lost the match by 69 runs.
