Purple Army will be looking to bounce back in style after their loss to RCB by 8 wickets. They were blown away by Mohammed Siraj’s furious spell, KKR managed just 84 runs on the board. Now sitting at fourth place in the table with 10 points, they would be desperate to increase their tally to stay alive in the play-offs race.

DC will also be eager to make amends following their loss against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in their last game. While both the teams are currently in the top half of the points table, a win will help them strengthen their position.

Whereas, in the second game of the day Kings XI Punjab [KXIP Full Squad] will face Sunrisers Hyderabad [SRH Full Squad] in a battle of survival. Both KXIP and SRH are on the same pedestal, having garnered eight points apiece after 10 games, but the Hyderabad outfit is a rung ahead in the eight-team standings, on the fifth spot by virtue of a better net run rate.  And both the teams need to win their remaining four games to guarantee their place in the play-offs.

Will Glenn Maxwell's bat do the talking today?

Kings XI Punjab's Glenn Maxwell has been the most disappointing inclusion so far in the IPL 2020. It will not be wrong to say that KXIP’s Maxwell is having a season to forget. He was bought for a whopping amount of 10.75 crores by Punjab and has been woeful with the bat so far. With 90 runs in 10 matches, he surely does not do justice to the kind of player he is. How long will he be a part of the KXIP playing XI remains to be seen.

Dhoni's CSK hit rock bottom

Midway through an inky Friday night in Sharjah, an era of Chennai Super Kings’ invincibility ended without a fight, but with a sense of inevitability. There was no better proof of CSK’s calamitous season, and a desperate need for renewal, than this night. They were helpless, and beyond it, hopeless in preventing a disastrous exit from the tournament. It was the most un-CSK performance of all times. They huffed and puffed to 114 for 9, and what rubbed salt into their festering wounds was the fact that Mumbai Indians won with 10 wickets to spare in just 12.2 overs. Watch highlights:

Who will prevail? Ferguson or Dhawan?

Lockie Ferguson has picked four wickets from his two matches for KKR this season. Add to it, his two in the Super Over against SRH. The Kiwi pacer will be someone that KKR will bank on as they look to make a strong return following their loss against RCB. On the other hand, Shikhar Dhawan, who is second on the Orange Cap list with 465 runs, is on fire -- 106*, 101*, 57, and 69*. Following his successive hundreds against KXIP and CSK, he became the first batsman to achieve that feat in the IPL history.
