Chennai Super Kings, Kings XI Punjab, Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad emerged as the first point-getters of the tournament and this is the points table as of now of IPL 2018.
So, we will start with the first Talking Point in our list that is:
All the matches of the 11th season of IPL 2018 were close encounters. Except the RR v SRH match, rest all the matches gave us a nail-biting finish.
In the first game between CSK-MI, the fans were unable to take a deep breath as the game could have changed at any moment. Thanks to Bravo’s heroism that Chennai which took the game from the hands of Mumbai Indians.
In the next game, Delhi Daredevils fought a tough game against Kings XI Punjab, though it looks like an easy victory for Punjab, Delhi made it tough for them to chase the total of 167 runs. Delhi could have won the match if they would have succeeded in pulling out the wickets at regular intervals, which they failed.
The third match which took place at the same evening of DD-KXIP match, Kolkata managed to outplay RCB with their balanced squad. RCB’s poor bowling line up was not able to handle the Knight Riders.
Scoring a high total was always RCB’s agenda and they didn’t fail in that, but it was just Narine’s 50 from 19 balls which dismantle the RCB side totally.
The final match of Round 1 between Hyderabad and Rajasthan wasn’t much fascinating as SRH clinched an easy victory over the Royals which didn’t leave much to excite the viewers.
However, we still hope this season to keep up an exciting pace to entertain the IPL lovers worldwide.
