Key Matches

Kings XI Punjab vs. Kolkata Knight Riders, Match 34

After beating Chennai Super Kings in Cuttack last time out, Kings XI Punjab have taken a big step in slowing the progress of their rivals, and they can do so once more when they host Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday.

Sandeep Sharma was handed man of the match honours the last time these two sides faced off, when Kings XI Punjab showed their credentials as serious title contenders, outlasting some prolific bowling by Kolkata.

Currently sitting in first and fourth, respectively, Punjab and Kolkata are six points apart, and while the Knight Riders would love to take a monumental step in reducing that gap, it may be beyond their control against an in-form Kings XI.

 

Chennai Super Kings vs. Rajasthan Royals, Match 37

Chennai Super Kings triumphed by seven runs when these Indian Premier League giants clashed in Dubai two weeks ago, a fixture that would ultimately establish the two-point gap which currently separates them.

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was in superlative form on that occasion, knocking for a score of 36 before then taking four wickets as he sent the Rajasthan Royals sinking.

As ESPNCricInfo show, Dwayne Smith was at least one of the Chennai Super Kings staff who managed to contribute something to that meeting: 

On May 13, Rajasthan Royals will get their chance at redemption and see their playoff aspirations either given a new lease of life or made to look all the more unlikely.

 

Mumbai Indians vs. Delhi Daredevils, Match 51

However, they aren't the only side struggling to attain consistency in 2014 as the Mumbai Indians have also taken just two wins thus far in the campaign, albeit having played a game less.

Delhi will hope to have made much more of their campaign by this stage, but their penultimate game of the season is at Wankhede Stadium in what could still be a make-or-break matchup by that point.

Pietersen must work with his squad between now and then to ensure the Daredevils pull off the same result as they did in the reverse fixture, beating the defending champions by four runs with seven balls to spare.
