Be it the Mumbai Indians vs Kings XI Punjab clash or the match between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals which was played on Thursday, both were good and entertained us till the last minute. While the matches have been full of entertainment, it has very much affected the IPL points table.

Before the CSK vs RR match, Dhoni and team were already leading the chart but post the win over hosts Rajasthan, they are at a comfortable position.
