Another weird one for CSK yesterday. Were looking good for a good while got it to needing 39 of 19 but managed to come up 10 runs short.

Big Shout out to Kedar Jadhav with his plucky 7 off 12 balls, whilst Ravi Jadeja was down the other end hitting 21 off 8.

Some of CSKs performances are becoming quite questionable.

The important thing for me with CSK is how Sam Curran does. They must drive their fans mad.

Today's game was about the Sunriser's openers firing. Bairstow deserved a hundred but 97 will do. Rashid Khan did brilliantly then. Pooran played a blinder too, but they now look a side running out of ideas and look low in confidence.

They deserve today for dropping Tom Curran.

Delhi are the best team in it this year.

CSK made light work of losing that game. 17 needed off the last over, thanks to a great 19th over by Sam Curran. Jadeja was given the job to bowl it and Axer Patel finished it quickly. Turns out Bravo wasn't fit to bowl but the left arm spinner?

A double super over in the Kings XI v Mumbai game. Never seen this before

Big drop off in the quality of bowling second time around. Bumrah and Shami only giving five runs was excellent. Trend Boult was poor in the game but I suppose you have to back him to do it in the super over. Agarwal and Gayle only needed half his over to get the runs.

Shikhar Dawhan has made 106* today but the Delhi all stars XI have only made 164-5 vs the Punjab XI super all stars selection, in todays exciting IPL sponsored by Slogwithaheavybat.com. For all your slogging needs. Some players stealing a living from this game.

Not sure I agree. I mean some are but bowling is of a very high quality, fielding is excellent and pitches are getting slow. Dhawan is a class player, done it for India for years and is in great form, two hundreds in two games now, first in IPL history.

Bottom teams beating the top teams lately, a lot of one sided games last week but CSK are gone despite a fine win today. Brilliant hundred by Stokes keeping Rajasthan alive. It's all getting very tight to make the playoffs. Tomorrow it's Morgan vs KL. Usually always root for Morgan's team but I like Kings this year too. It really is true that anyone can beat anyone on their day in the IPL. Pure guesswork picking a winner this year.

Rajasthan Royals could still sneak into 4th spot here! Easy win over KXIP today!

It's all very tight. RR would be much better positioned in the table if they had Stokes in this form for the whole tournament. Bowling has improved every game and looks back to his best with the bat. Other than Archer, they have been too inconsistent. If they could sneak into the playoffs, I would fancy them. The other sides are all over the place at the moment.

They got off to good starts with the ball in almost every match thanks to Archer but just seemed incapable of doing anything with them, with Stokes the whole way through he might have made the difference but it felt like they were still a bowler short too often.

No doubt short in the bowling. Tyagi wasn't bad and Tewatia was good too. No consistency with the bat at all. On paper as good as anyone, Robin, Samson, Tewatia along with the big overseas stars. And Smith is copping a lot for his captaincy too.

So, last place to be decided today. MI vs SRH. SRH win will be enough for them and that knocks KKR out. Hoping MI play a full team and do KKR a favour.
