One week into the IPL and thank God it’s Friday again or TGIF as they say. For IPL fans, they can watch the next three matches with full concentration as work takes a backseat over the weekend to give way for some exciting IPL matches this weekend, starting with Chennai Super Kings(CSK) versus Delhi Capitals(DC) on Friday. While CSK lost the match against Rajasthan Royals(RR), their opponents in Friday’s match DC have won against Kings Xi Punjab(KXIP) by over 2 wickets in the super over, after both teams were tied. Will CSK be able to gain back their confidence and give DC a good run on the field? MS Dhoni fans want to see the captain weave his magic and get his boys to win this match.
On Saturday, fans will see Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) play against the orange Army, Sunrisers Hyderabad as both fans in Kolkata and Shah Rukh Khan fans will want to see KKR giving their best shot. KKR, however, lost to Mumbai Indians in their last match by 49 runs while SRH has a slight upper hand after winning against Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) by 10 runs. With almost no practice as a team during the global lockdown, all eight teams in the IPL will have to rely on the little practice they have managed to squeeze in before the matches coupled with past experience that can be a saviour.

The team from the Pink city RR are ready to take on KXIP on Sunday. RR got off to a good start in the 2020 edition of the IPL after winning their match against Chennai Super Kings(CSK) by 16 runs. It will be a good contest considering KXIP has also won their opening match in the IPL against RCB against a huge margin of 97 runs.
Jos Butler joins RR’s training ahead of the match on Sunday against KXIP. Butler had missed the team’s first match of the IPL against CSK. Butler lost out due to quarantine rules amidst the COVID-19 pandemic as the cricketer was travelling with his family.
