The Royal Challengers Bangalore got a much needed win under their belt, hammering the table topping Rajasthan Royals by 9 wickets in a non-contest in Bengaluru.

Having been put into bat by RCB, the Rajasthan Royals struggled to 130-9 in their 20 overs with Mitchell Starc and Harshal Patel doing the bulk of the damage, sharing 5 wickets between them.

In what was arguably the most enjoyable game in Season 8 of the Indian Premier League thus far, the Kings XI Punjab handed the Rajasthan Royals their first defeat of the campaign, needing a super over to upset the runaway IPL leaders.

The Kings XI Punjab won the toss and elected to send the Rajasthan Royals in to bat, a decision they were soon left to rue as the home-less Royals shared a 95-run stand for the opening wicket with Shane Watson (45) and Ajinkya Rahane (74) continuing from where they left off in the last game.

Fantastic half-centuries from openers Ajinkya Rahane (76* from 56 balls) and Shane Watson (73 from 47 balls) helped the Rajasthan Royals thump the Chennai Super Kings by 8 wickets in the battle of the two unbeaten sides in IPL Season 8.

The flip of the coin went the way of the Chennai Super Kings, who had absolutely no hesitation in opting to bat first on a very warm afternoon in Ahmedabad. The Super Kings came into this side unchanged, but the Royals did tinker around with their playing eleven with Shane Watson returning to captain the side and Tim Southee the foreign player forced to make way. The Royals also brought in rookie left arm spinner Ankit Sharma into the side for the excellent Dhawal Kulkarni, who was unfortunate to be dropped after taking 2-9 from his 3 overs in the last game.

The Rajasthan Royals reaffirmed their status as one of the teams to beat this season, picking up their straight win of the campaign by beating the Mumbai Indians by 7 wickets in Ahmedabad. The defeat was also particularly disappointing for the Indians, who have now lost three straight matches to kick-off season 8 of the IPL, and are already looking like they will struggle to make the play-offs this season.

The Mumbai Indians won the toss on a belter of a wicket at Ahmedabad, but quickly lost their way, stuttering to 45-3 at the midway stage of their innings. Corey Anderson (50* from 38 balls) and Kieran Pollard (70 from 34 balls) resurrected the innings by mixing aggression with caution early in their innings before Pollard exploded towards the back end, with Mumbai virtually doubling their score in the last 5 overs, scoring 81 of the 164 runs they finished with.

An increasingly desperate Mumbai Indians side take on the in-form Rajasthan Royals in what has the increasing look of a must win game for the visitors in Ahmedabad.

The Indians won the toss and decided to make first use of the pitch. They have also made three changes to their side for this game, one of which is enforced by injury. A sore neck for the previous game's hero Harbhajan Singh has ruled him out of this contest, and the veteran offie has been replaced by leggie Shreyas Gopal. Alos coming in for their first game of IPL Season 8 are Unmukt Chand and Parthiv Patel with Ambati Rayudu and Aditya Tare making way.

Lady luck continues to reside as far away from the Delhi Daredevils' camp as possible as the home side suffered their 2nd straight last ball defeat in this season's IPL and were also as a result condemned to an 11th loss in a row, going all the way back to last season.

The Rajasthan Royals won the toss and opted to chase in the 4pm kick-off at the Feroz Shah Kotla. The Delhi team had three changes with allrounder Angelo Mathews replacing Albie Morkel, who came within a run of winning the last game for the Daredevils. Additionally, Jaydev Unadkat and Manoj Tiwary came in for CM Gautam and Domnic Muthuswami. Gautam sitting out meant that Delhi used a part-time keeper in Kedar Jadhav behind the stumps. The Rajasthan Royals meanwhile were unchanged, which meant no Shane Watson in this game either.

Delhi plays host to Indian Premier League for the first time in Season 8 as the Daredevils entertain the Rajasthan Royals in what should be a terrific contest.

The flip of the coin went the way of the visitors with Steve Smith deciding to put Delhi in to bat. The decision was well received by Delhi skipper JP Duminy, who shared he would have opted to bat anyway!
