The 15th season of the IPL continues, and three more matches are played. Eight teams played three games each, while two teams were still within two games.
On Tuesday, March 5, Rajasthan Royals faced Royal Challengers Bangalore. RR showed a good level of safe batting, losing only three wickets, but the scoreboard fixed a moderate 169 runs. It meant all the chances for RCB to chase their opponents, and they did it in 19.1 overs, scoring 173 for 6. An unfortunate result for RR’s Buttler, who scored 70 from 47 balls, not out as the best batter of the game.

On the following day, Kolkata Knight Riders opposed Mumbai Indians, who settled in the bottom with two losses. And KKR continued a losing streak for MI, winning the game 162/5 (16) – 161/6 (20). Actually, MI had chances, but a crazy 56 runs from 15 balls by Cummins (373.33 SR) closed the game much faster than anyone could expect.
On Thursday, Lucknow Super Giants faced Delhi Capital. The newcomers of the competition showed another good game, beating DC with a tight score of 155/4 (19.4) – 149/3 (20). It should be quite unfortunate for DC’s Show (61 from 34) to lose the game, while LSG’s de Kock should be pleased with his 80 from 52.

On Saturday, Chennai Super Kings will try to claim their first win against Sunrisers Hyderabad, while Mumbai Indians will also try to take the first points in the encounter against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
