Match 39 Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians

The Dubai International Stadium hosted the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians match. Virat Kohli led side has done it yet again. The RCB squad get a complete team effort this time. After being horribly trolled in the opening game of the season. We see Virat Kohli fight back with a 51 (42) and Glenn Maxwell who had a max- very well show!! Yuzvendra Chahal and Harshal Patel were absolutely successful in crushing the Mumbai Indians squad. Rohit Sharma and Quinton De Kock anchor Mumbai Indians innings but they are not able to get a steady innings and get all out on 111 runs! A big margin win and much needed victory for the Royal Challengers Bangalore as they get their first win against the Mumbai Indians in their first game of the IPL remainder by 54 runs!

Match 38 Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings

 Faf Du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad might have anchored the innings for Dhoni's yellow brigade. Ravindra Jadeja has just turned the game around with his heroic innings with the bat and ball both. What a wonderful comeback by the Chennai Super Kings. Sunil Narine and Andre Russell's combine effort fall short to save the Knights from a defeat by just 2 wickets! Although Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana and a much needed cameo from Dinesh Karthik help the Kolkata Knight Riders reach absolutely up their game! Interestingly, the CSK bowling unit get the better of the Knights!

Match 37 Punjab Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

 The Sharjah Cricket Stadium is set to host Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad today. The pitch favoured the bowlers more than batsman today. Both the teams did not capitalize on a good innings. The bowlers stole the limelight more so. Sunrisers Hyderabad win the toss and decide to bowl first. Punjab Kings set a total of 125/7 (20) after a low string of scores from Aiden Markram and KL Rahul getting just 27 and 21 runs respectively. Jason Holder of Hyderabad gets 3/19 (4) with Abdul Samad and Rashid Khan getting one each to quickly send the batsmen back to the dressing room. Guess what! Jason Holder also gets to 47* (29) and Wriddhiman Saha has 2000 IPL runs to his kitty allowing the Sunrisers Hyderabad to be back in action. Although the Sunrisers are not just getting well with their game. They fail to get past the total and Punjab Kings win the game by just 5 runs! Now it's time that the Hyderabad Orange Army works on some much required areas to bounce back stronger in their upc

Match 36 Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals

 Wasn't Sanju Samson's knock enough for the Rajasthan Royals to successfully win against Delhi Capitals. Probably not!  Rajasthan Royals' Rahman, Sakariya and Tewatia get timely wickets to restrict a good batting line up of the Delhi Capitals to just 154/6(20) Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw fall short to the Royals' bowlers. All eyes were on Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer. What a fine knock the middle order batsman have played to reach this total! On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson gets to a 70* (53) but remains to be under pressure as he fails to get the support of his fellow team mates. Anrich Notrje, Ashwin and Rabada have done their bit to quickly weaken Samson's support. They clinch back to back wickets. As a result, Sanju is unable to capitalize towards the winning side at the end of the game. Rajasthan Royals are in desparate need of victory before they fall short of qualifying in the top four of the points table. Delhi Capitals win this

Match 35 Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Chennai Super Kings

The Royal Challengers Bangalore vs  Chennai Super Kings  match was supposed to begin at 7.30 PM IST. Unfortunately, a sandstorm in Sharjah delayed the toss. The toss was initially delayed for 10 minutes but looks like we will have to wait longer. Another inspection from the umpires took place at 7.25 PM IST. Amidst this, Virat Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni were seen chatting with each other. Firstly, the fans are waiting for the famous Sothern Derby. Secondly, the famous sandstorms have struck UAE once again.   The Royal Challengers Bangalore have to up their game. They were defeated horribly by the Kolkata Knight Riders in their first game. Whereas, Ruturaj Gaikwad played so well to get CSK their first win. Definitely looked like RCB's day at office today. Devdutt Paddikal and Virat Kohli's combined knock allows the Challengers to put up a fine total of 156/6(20) Dwayne Bravo gets 3/24 (4) to become Man of the Match to send some batsmen back to the dressing room. The RCB need

Match 34 Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders

Here at the Shiekh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, the Kolkata Knight Riders go against Mumbai Indians today. Rohit Sharma added back to the squad after he misses the opening game of the remainder in the Indian Premier League. He will also be leading the side today for the Mumbai Indians. Knights will take to field against MI. Rohit and Quinton De Kock began the proceedings for the men in blue. They are up to a good score, try to get to maximum boundaries and end up at 155/6 (20) with Kieron Pollard playing a short cameo there. Wickets in the name of Prasidh Krishna, Lockie Ferguson and Sunil Narine to restrict the team to just 155 runs off 20 overs. Knights have been shining so bright ever since phase two began. What a wonderful beginning we see by Rahul Tripathi 74*(42), Venkatesh Iyer this youngster keeps getting better at his game with a 53(30) and Shubman Gill, short roll of 13 runs but crucial role there. Jasprit Bumrah of the Mumbai Indians picks up 3/43 in 4 overs but KKR emerge vi

Match 33 Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Delhi Capitals

  The   Rishabh Pant   led Delhi Capitals to go against   Sunrisers Hyderabad   in their first encounter of the IPL remainder today. The match will be played live from Dubai International Stadium. Before that, firstly the head coach Ricky Ponting and Captain Rishabh Pant engage with the audience via a virtual press conference. Secondly, they are discussing the atmosphere in their training camp and thoughts on their first game. The tournament was played in parts. First in India and now in UAE. Ricky Ponting says it’s quite unusual. Firstly, there was a gap too so it’s been a disruptive series so far. As a result, the camp started off well in UAE. Now the team is trying hard in the practice session to get back. Then, addressing the tournament before it got suspended, the captain of the Delhi Capitals mentions that the previous competition counts but as a team, the squad chooses to focus on the present match and they do not discuss the previous games.  Speaking of the challenge against th
