This could probably be the best double header day in IPL 2015. Reason - Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore are the strongest contenders after CSK, KKR and RR and they would battle it out today in the 4pm encounter at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The other match for the day would involve the strongest teams of this edition CSK and RR locking horns in the 8pm encounter.
Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore have a similar story. They started off struggling but later they are back to their winning ways. Especially Mumbai Indians currently have an upper hand with five wins on the trot. Above all their recent win came against the strong Chennai Super Kings in their own backyard in Chennai. Rohit Sharma, Rayudu, Pollard, Malinga and Harbhajan are doing a great job.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have always had the strongest team on paper. But they have somehow 'under achieved'. With the likes of in-form Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers this team deserves a title. Mitchell Starc has bowled exceptionally well and he will surely be a threat to the Mumbai's batting line up.
The strong team Rajasthan Royals meet equally strong Chennai Super Kings at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Both the teams have 14 points so far but CSK has played a match lesser than RR. The situation currently is a bit difficult for RR as they have just two matches left and they can't leave their fortunes for the last match. They would love to nail one today and strengthen their claim for playoffs.
CSK lost a match against MI at home and now they would strive for a win. The team needs big knocks from Brendon McCullum, Raina and Dwayne Smith. For RR, Ajinkya Rahane is the most consistent scorer. Spinners would definitely play a big role today here at the spin friendly track of Chepauk.
