The best cricket competition is still at its initial stage, and the results of the second round are up to your attention.
The first game was between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders. KKR started batting first but hit only 128 runs in 18.5 overs, so they were easily chased by RCB, who made 132 for 7, although they made it in 19 overs. The next scheduled game was between Lucknow Super Giants and Chennai Super Kings. The reigning champions, CSK, seemed to clinch the game by scoring 210 runs. However, the newcomers responded with a crucial 211 for 4, having three balls saved.
