The Indian Premier League is entering the home straight with just over a week remaining of the regular fixtures before the knockout stages begin.

Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings are tied up at the top of the table with 16 points from 10 games played, while Delhi Daredevils' pitiful return of two wins from 11 sees them propping the others up.

However, there is still much scope for a table reshuffle over the last week of matches, with each side attempting to break into the top four and fight for a final chance.

Here is the schedule for the final league games of the seventh edition of the IPL and the current table.

Kings XI have provided much of the batting fireworks in the tournament so far and sit top of the table courtesy of their net run-rate.

They have scored over 200 runs in an innings on three occasions so far this tournament, one of which was an absolutely enormous 231-run total in victory over Chennai, the biggest score of the tournament so far per IPLT20.com.

Punjab have also chased down the biggest total in the tournament as they won with eight balls to spare in pursuit of the 205 target set by Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday, per ESPNcricinfo

Former England spinner Phil Tufnell commented that it was not really a match for bowlers:

Glenn Maxwell has been the star batsman so far in IPL 7, joining an elite group of players to reach 500 runs in one tournament, per Opta:

Along with Kings XI, Chennai are the other team who look well set to secure a place in the knockout rounds.

They have been equally impressive with the likes of MS Dhoni and Dwayne Smith contributing hugely.

The West Indian has scored stacks of runs up front while skipper Dhoni has continued to prove his ability as the best finisher in the game, per CricHQ.com:

At the other end of the table, Kevin Pietersen's Delhi Daredevils have been woeful and sit bottom with last year's winners, Mumbai Indians, two points ahead of them in seventh.

Cricket Central unfavourably compares Delhi to the English national team, and there is indeed little to be said for their form so far in the tournament:

While their scoring has not been too bad—they have two scores in the 170s and one of 180 in the competition—their ability to defend a score has been terrible. 

Kolkata and Rajasthan need to claim victories in the next week to confirm their places in the top four, but Sunrisers and Bangalore could make a charge with a strong finish.

The real question is whether there is any looking past a matchup between Chennai and Punjab when the final comes around in Bengaluru on June 1.
