IPL Match 12: Chennai Super Kings thrash Mumbai Indians in no contest

The Mumbai Indians succumbed to their fourth straight defeat of IPL Season 8, getting hammered by 6 wickets by the Chennai Super Kings, who romped home with 20 balls to spare.

To compound matters for the Mumbai Indians, this time they actually posted a pretty decent score on the board, batting first in front of a buoyant home crowd at the Wankhede Stadium and recovering from a horror start of 12-3 to post a very respectable 183-7 on the board.


IPL Match 11: Rajasthan Royals extend winning run to 4 straight games

The Rajasthan Royals continue to know the secret to winning in IPL Season 8, squeezing past the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Vizag today in a low scoring contest.

Having sent the Sunrisers in to bat after winning the toss, the Royals appeared to have the game well in control when they restricted them to just 127-5 in their 20 overs with virtually everyone in the Surisers' batting unit getting starts, but no one going on to make a decent contribution.


IPL Match 10: Delhi Daredevils record long overdue win

The Delhi Daredevils finally brought an end to their brutal losing streak, stopping it at 11 games, after beating the Kings XI Punjab by 5 wickets with 1 ball to spare in an entertaining contest in Pune.

Punjab won the toss and decided to bat first. Their openers - Virender Sehwag and Murali Vijay - struggled against the raw pace of Nathan Coulter-Nile, but enjoyed immense freedom at the other end to express themselves. Coulter-Nile conceded 2 runs from the first 11 balls he bowled, but Vijay (19) and Sehwag (47) picked up enough runs off Dominic Muthuswami and Angelo Mathews to ensure that the scoreboard ticked over at a decent rate.


Kings XI Punjab win the toss and decide to have a bat

An in-form Kings XI Punjab entertain an unfortunate Delhi Daredevils side that is hoping to avoid losing a 12th straight game in the IPL.

Delhi have been playing decent cricket this season, but have fallen agonizingly short in both their games thus far. Punjab on the other hand continue to look just as dangerous as they did last season, and that too without their two big Ms firing so far this campaign.


IPL Match 9: Smith condemns Mumbai to third straight loss

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.


Mumbai Indians win the toss and elect to bat first

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.


IPL Match 8: Sunrisers Hyderabad hammer Royal Challengers Bangalore to get season up and running

The Sunrisers Hyderabad picked up a much needed early win in IPL Season 8 to announce themselves as potential challengers for a top 4 berth, beating the Royal Challengers in Bangalore by 8 wickets in what was a rather one-sided, yet quite entertaining contest.

The Sunrisers won the toss and put RCB in. The decision looked like to backfire as the Royal Challengers were 77-1 at the half-way stage of the innings and looked well set to score in excess of 200 runs with 9 wickets in hand. However, some inspired bowling in the second half of the innings saw the long tail of RCB badly exposed as they were bowled out for 166, failing to bat out their 20 overs.


IPL Match 7: Harbhajan effort in vain as Punjab record narrow win

User Rating: / 1

The Kings XI Punjab dominated 34 overs of their contest with the Mumbai Indians, and looked set to win their match in a canter before a late burst from Harbhajan Singh saw the 'Turbanator' smash 6 sixes and 5 fours to score 64 runs from just 24 balls and record the fastest 50 ever in Mumbai Indians history.

Bhajji though fell on the penultimate ball of the match as Kings XI hung on nervously to record an 18 run victory against a Mumbai Indians side who just refused to know when they were beaten.


Mumbai win the toss and send Punjab in to bat

The Mumbai Indians play host to the Kings XI Punjab at the Wankhede Stadium with both sides in desperate need for a win.

The flip of the coin went the way of the home side with Rohit Sharma sending Kings XI Punjab in to bat. Mumbai have made some interesting selections with Jagadeesha Suchith and Pawan Suyal coming in for Pragyan Ojha and Bumrah.

Punjab meanwhile made one change to their side with Rishi Dhawan coming in for Karanveer Singh.


Mumbai Indians: R Sharma (c), A Finch, A Tare (wk), A Rayudu, C Anderson, K Pollard, H Singh, L Malinga, V Kumar, P Suyal, J Suchith

Kings XI Punjab: V Sehwag, M Vijay, W Saha (wk), G Maxwell, A Patel, D Miller, G Bailey (c), M Johnson, R Dhawan, A Singh, S Sharma
