So we have reached that point of IPL where we can start predicting a few things.
While it’s almost clear that Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians will occupy the first two spots.
It’s very certain that Royal Challengers Bangalore will finish at the third spot.
While the competition for the fourth slot is still open.
Kolkata Knights Riders are the top contenders for it while Sunrisers Hyderabad and Even Chennai Super Kings can fight for it.
But, what was the highlighting part of this week??
Three Super Overs in a single day…..
Super Over getting tied and thus resulting in one more super over….
Wasn’t it a bit too much of suspense to handle in a single day!!!
Let’s have a quick look at the report of all the 8 teams.
Report Card of Week 5 ->
RCB -> Win – 2 Loss – 0
CSK -> Win – 1 Loss – 1
MI -> Win – 1 Loss – 1
SRH -> Win – 0 Loss – 2
DC -> Win – 2 Loss – 0
KKR – > Win – 1 Loss – 2
KXIP -> Win – 2 Loss – 0
RR -> Win – 0 Loss – 2
Chennai Super Kings continue their horrible run this week as they have done till now.
They started getting some momentum after beating SRH but lost to DC making things worse for them.
Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore were quite consistent this week too making things a bit more transparent for the play offs.
All the other teams were inconsistent getting both victories and defeats.
Thus, making the run for fourth slot really exciting.
Kings XI Punjab who looked almost out of the tournament have grabbed two wins in a row against strong teams making the tournament open up again.
Chris Gayle is back and is making impact right from the word go.
We have also seen some interesting opening combinations where players like Stokes and Curran have open the innings for their respective teams again following the unsaid protocol of Strange Selections.
In this week, we have seen one great spell by Lockie Ferguson at the same time a real good knock by Ab De villiers against Rajasthan Royals where he almost pulled off a blinder.
And what about super over bowled by mighty Indian Pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami.
It was really scintillating stuff…
It’s also that part of IPL where the bottom teams will start playing spoilsport for midway teams.
