It has been nearly two weeks since the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) kicked off, and in our latest edition of Firstpost Gameplan with cricket expert Ayaz Memon, we take a look at all the matches that have taken place over the weekend, and preview the clashes on Monday.
Among the talking points in the matches over the second weekend of the league was the double hat-trick on Friday, with Samuel Badree and Andrew Tye recording the feats in what turned out to be a unique event. While Tye's haul engineered Gujarat Lions' first win of the tournament, Badree's figures of 4/9 went in vain as Royal Challengers Bangalore failed to defend the 143-run target against Mumbai Indians, who later defeated Gujarat Lions on Sunday to climb to the top of the table with four wins out of five.
Delhi Daredevils host Kolkata Knight Riders in the first match of the Monday's double-header, while Sunrisers Hyderabad lock horns with Kings XI Punjab (with both teams coming off the back of back-to-back losses).
