- IPL LIVE: Pune Supergiant Wins Toss & Opts To Bow.
Pune: Kings XI Punjab will be aiming to continue their late surge when they face Rising Pune Supergiant in a “winner takes it all” Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter at the Maharashtra Cricket Association’s International Stadium, Pune on Sunday.
Three teams — Mumbai Indians, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders are already assured of a play-off berth. Supergiant fluffed their lines in what seemed to be an easy run-chase against out of contention Delhi Daredevils only to keep the race of final four open till the last game. Supergiant are currently on 16 points from 13 games with a net run-rate -0.083 while Kings XI Punjab are on 14 points from equal number of matches but have a comparatively better run-rate of +0.296.
If the latter win, they will then take Pune’s fourth place and secure a place in the play-offs, as simple as that.
