The 14th edition of the Indian Premier league is postponed after a few players from the Kolkata Knight Riders and a few staff members from Chennai Super Kings tested positive for coronavirus.

The BCCI announced that the tournament will be paused momentarily and they will provide safe passage for all the players and the supporting staff to reach their homes. 

Currently, there is no word on when the tournament would be resumed. 

In my personal opinion, the tournament will be postponed for at least 3 months and might move away from India to complete the remaining half of the tournament.

This is the penultimate match of the season's first round. After the 28th match between SRH and RR, the first round of the season will be completed, where all the team have played with all the other 7 seven other teams once. from the 29th match, the team will be playing for the second time.

This is a big match for the Indian Premier League fans, as we can expect a thriller match and the aggression of some serious rivalry between the two teams. Both the teams have played 6 matches till now, in which CSK only lost a match to DC whereas MI lost 3 matches.

The 27th match of the IPL will be played in Motera Stadium, Ahmedabad and the match begins at 7:30 PM.

Chennai Super Kings

Chennai has able to win all the matches but the first match against the Delhi Capitals. In that match, the team has performed well but, the DC has performed better than them.

This team has able to break the winning streak of the Royal Challengers Bangalore by taking the wickets of the team's big-guns in the middle over. 

All thanks to Sir Jadeja, he scored 37 runs from Harshal Patel's last over and took 3 wickets in the second innings.

Chennai needs to be careful by not giving any runs to Mumbai Indians in the death overs. If they are succeded in restricting them, Chennai is going to win.

The CSK batting big guns needs to flourish in the powerplay and try to set a maximum score and make MI harder to chase in the following innings, if they chose to bat first.

Chennai Super Kings Squad

Probable Playing 11

1 Faf du Plessis, 2 Ruturaj Gaikwad, 3 Moeen Ali, 4 Suresh Raina, 5 Ambati Rayudu, 6 Ravindra Jadeja, 7 MS Dhoni (capt & wk), 8 Sam Curran, 9 Shardul Thakur, 10 Deepak Chahar, 11 Lungi Ngidi

Mumbai Indians

In the 6 matches they have played, MI just won 3 matches. They won those matches because of very good bowling. Mumbai Indians have lost their touch in the batting as they are not scoring much compared to last year.

In the death over, the team is struggling as the death bowling specialist batsmen are failing to score runs and losing wickets in the process.

If this continues, it might hard even to secure 4th position on the points table. Its time for Mumbai Indians to change the squad and try to do experimenting with new players.

The CSK bowling and MI bowling is equal in all aspects,but the team whcih adapts to the situation and pressure will be the winner.

Quick wickets and tight feeling might save them from Chennai Super Kings in today's match.

Mumbai Indians Squad

Probable playing 11

 1 Quinton de Kock (wk), 2 Rohit Sharma (capt), 3 Suryakumar Yadav, 4 Krunal Pandya, 5 Kieron Pollard, 6 Hardik Pandya, 7 Nathan Coulter-Nile, 8 Jayant Yadav, 9 Rahul Chahar, 10 Trent Boult, 11 Jasprit Bumrah

With the help of Chris Gayle, K L Rahul scored 80 runs in 45 balls. Their partnership really helped the team to score runs in the middle overs.

Then Chris Gayle got out in Daniel Sam's 11th over. Then Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Hooda and Shahrukh Khan got out early by barely scoring any runs.

Then Harpreet Barr and KL Rahul built another partnership of 61 runs in 32 balls. Harshal Patel, the leading wicket-taker in the tournament gave the most runs in the death overs. 

By the end of the Innings, Punjab Kings scored 179 for a loss of 5 wickets in 20 overs.

With a decent and reasonable score to chase, Royal Challengers Bangalore batsmen Virat Kohli and Devdutt Padikkal opened the second innings.

While trying to hit a glory shot, Devdutt Padikkal got bowled in Riely Merdith's 3rd over. Then, Harpreet Barr took Virat Kohli and Glen Maxwell's wickets in the 2 consecutive balls.

Glenn Maxwell didn't believe that he got out for quite some time. He eventually went back to the dugout after getting OUT for duck. Those balls from Harpreet were really amazing.

In the next over, Harpreet got  AB de Villiers. With the RCB top-order and their big guns failed to fire, the small guns scored a few runs to save the run rate for the points table.

Harpreet Barr, the bowler who single-handedly crushed RCB and helped his team to win the game. This is the 3rd win for the Punjab Kings. And the Royal Challengers Bangalore just fell to third place in the points table.
