Recap

To recap the main performances of the week:

KXIP v CSK: KXIP won by 4 runs despite a late charge by MSD on one leg. Chris Gayle was the man of the match for his 63 runs, announcing his return to the IPL.

KKR v DD: KKR won by 71 runs. More depression for DD fans. Rana and Russell demolish the DD bowlers.

MI v RCB: Rohit’s 94 overcame Kohli’s 92 not out. Mumbai Indians finally got some points on the board.

RR v KKR: Nitish Rana again came to the party to take KKR to a 7 wicket win.

KXIP v SRH: The Gaylestorm (104) handed the Sunrisers their first loss of the IPL 2018. Gayle announced that Virender Sehwag had saved the IPL by picking him in the auction. Sehwag promptly confirmed this on Twitter. Rab ne bana di jodi!

CSK v RR: Watto smashed a ton as well just to show he’s still got it. RR fell short by 64 runs.

KKR v KXIP: Another Gayle/Rahul demolition job to breach KKR’s fortress at Eden.

RCB v DD: When AB is flying, no one can catch him. After a great innings by Pant, AB almost single handedly made sure that DD fans had to endure yet another loss. Gambhir must be scratching his head wondering how a team that looks so good on paper is sitting at the bottom of the table.
