Delhi Daredevils and Kolkata Knight Riders cruised to easy wins during Saturday's 2017 Indian Premier League action, taking care of Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad, respectively.

Neither team was able to chase down a lofty target, denting both teams' play-off chances considerably.

Here's a look at Saturday's results and the schedule for the coming days:

Sunday's IPL action will be another double-header involving Mumbai Indians, Gujarat Lions, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rising Pune Supergiant.

In the early match, table-toppers Indians will try to grab their first-ever win over Lions after losing both matches last season. Mumbai have started the IPL season in remarkable form, while Gujarat currently find themselves outside of the play-off spots.

Lasith Malinga missed Indians' last match against Bangalore due to illness, and should he return, it would give his side yet another advantage against a team that has struggled greatly without the injured Dwayne Bravo.

The wicket in Mumbai should boost Gujarat's prolific and explosive batsmen, however, and New Zealand star Brendon McCullum can't wait to play there:

@mipaltan at Wankhede Stadium! Lets get it on! Great wicket for batting, two strong line ups! Should be proper viewing! Swing hard!!!

Lions' spinners haven't been at their best so far this season and will need to be ready to play against the likes of Rohit Sharma and his team-mates.

Ravindra Jadeja in particular will play a crucial role―the star bowler has only just returned from injury and was a little rusty in their last match. If he's anywhere close to top form, Gujarat will have the chance to attack early and put real pressure on Indians.

Later in the day, Bangalore and Pune will do battle, with Supergiant looking for their first win over their opponents. The visitors are the only winless team left in this year's IPL, while Royal Challengers have won just a single match so far.

The surface of the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium has been far from ideal in 2017, and its dry state hasn't helped Bangalore's usually prolific batsmen. Cricket writer Harsha Bhogle made the comparison to a stadium notorious for ceding the advantage to bowlers and how the two seem to have switched places:

So the old Chinnaswamy track has swapped places with the old Eden Gardens pitch.

The likes of Chris Gayle have struggled with spin at home as a result, and that in turn may see Lockie Ferguson dropped to the bench. Ferguson struggled tremendously against Gujarat, and replacing him with a spinner would be a good idea.

But even if Gayle struggles, Bangalore's depth remains remarkable, and Virat Kohli showed solid form in the mach against Mumbai.
