Hi all,

Double Header Sunday…

Till now Sunrisers are having easy opponents to face off, But when met the defending champions, It was not to be… KKR’s top order ensured runs are on the board by the end of 20 overs and bowlers made sure they win the match with a Big margin… It was actually as easy as I have written.. 

Kolkata Knight Riders won the match by 48 runs…

Switching to Jaipur Sawai Mansingh Stadium so called fortress of Royals remained intact even after the game, As Kings XI failed to breach the Wall… A Low Scoring match, as Punjab was bowled out in 18.4 overs for meagre 124 runs, which gave Royals enough time to chase through even after a blistering start from Watson, Royals kept the hunt alive till 19.2 overs and finally crossed the line to get themselves to 3rd place in the table.

Rajasthan Royals won the match by 6 Wickets with 4 ball to spare…
