Action time on the field –
Lucknow Super Giants faced off against Chennai Super Kings on Wednesday afternoon in the 1st of the second double header weekday. Gautam Gambhir will be without his captain KL Rahul who has been ruled out of the tournament. Rahul, hurt his leg on Monday and will under BCCI supervision and is a huge doubt for the World Test Championship final.
Virat Kohli, is in Delhi as he will turn out for the Royal Challengers Bangalore against the Delhi Capitals next. David Warner and his men kept their slim hopes alive by beating defending champions Gujarat by 5 runs on Tuesday night. A win for bottom placed Delhi will open the tournament even more, while a win for Bangalore will put them in with a good shout of making it to final 4.
