Eminent sports journalist Ayaz Memon discusses the weekend double-headers, aside from previewing the upcoming matches of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 this week, in another edition of the Firstpost Gameplan.

The weekend saw two close games — Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) beating Delhi Daredevils (DD) by 15 runs and Mumbai Indians (MI) outsmarting Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by four wickets in a game that went down to the very last minute. In the other matches, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) recovered from a bad start to ultimately win their opening encounter, in which they squared off against Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS). Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) having got off to a strong start with a 35-run win over Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), thrashed struggling Gujarat Lions by nine wickets in a lopsided encounter.
