It was literally a case of blow-hot one day and blow-cold on another. Despite early stutter, RCB batted powerfully after winning the toss in Pune’s Eliminator match against a side, which recorded five consecutive victories to begin the 2015 IPL season. And when, no one doubted their place in play-offs, RR lost their way. Bangalore […]

It could have been a lot easier for Rajasthan Royals, if they had not yielded a bundle of extras after batting marvelously earlier on. There was a bug in their bowling performance as they allowed KKR to come within 9 runs after scoring 199. RR skipper Steven Smith won the toss and rightly elected to […]

It wasn’t much of the contest at the end as CSK dictated terms to Kings XI Punjab in their last IPL fixture.

Mumbai Win Another Match to Stay Alive in 2015 IPL

, , , , , , , ,

Mumbai might have won against KKR in a thrilling contest at the Wankhede Stadium but their batting weakness in the first 12 overs was a repeat script of their several earlier innings.

Having already made their exit from 2015 IPL, Delhi Daredevils’ victory in the night game at Raipur was inconsequential for themselves.
