The underrated Kings XI Punjab jolted Chennai Super Kings in their opener while Rajasthan Royals won their first encounter against Sunrisers Hyderabad. CSK scored 4-205 in the allocated 20 overs and Mohali powered 4-206 with seven balls still available. Sunrisers Hyderabad managed 6-133 and RR smashed 6-135 in 19.3 overs. Both teams will enter the field for their superiority, gaining two vital points and additional confidence.

Players to watch

Glenn Maxwell continued with his brilliant form with an attacking knock of 95 for Kings XI Punjab whereas David Miller posted an unbeaten fifty. Their skipper George Bailey along with Virender Sehwag can get back their form any time. Mitchell Johnson is a match winner on his day while Lakshmipathy Balaji and Akshar Patel will give him nice support.

Ajinkya Rahane laid the foundation of victory for RR by scoring 59 runs and Stuart Binny held the middle order and secured his end for 48. Shane Watson will be a vital batsman and Brad Hodge has a vast experience in T20 cricket while the fast bowling trio of Kane Richardson, Rajat Bhatia and Dhawal Kulkarni is bowling superbly.
