Chennai Super Kings v Kings XI Punjab Chennai 11:30 AM (10:30 GMT)
Sunrisers Hyderabad v Mumbai Indians Hyderabad 3:30 PM (2:30 GMT)
The first match of the double-header on Saturday will be played between Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab at Chennai's home ground at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
Chennai Super Kings were dethroned from the top of the points table after the defeat in their last match against Mumbai Indians. They had Mumbai pinned down for about the first 16 overs but Chennai's death bowlers Dwayne Bravo and Shardul Thakur did not have answers to the late blitz by Hardik Pandya Kieron Pollard.
Jason Behrendorff then knocked out both Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu, making it very difficult for Chennai to get going. Wickets kept getting toppled at regular intervals as Chennai lost the match by a huge margin.
Kings XI Punjab had contrasting fortunes in the last game against Delhi Capitals till around 37 out of the total 40 overs. Delhi Capitals were in control of the match but suddenly lost their way towards the end.
Some excellent death bowling from Sam Curran, which included a hat-trick, helped the team win the match by 14 runs. Curran was replacing the injured Chris Gayle and did his job brilliantly by winning the Man of the Match award.
While Chennai Super Kings played just three overseas players in the last match, Kings XI Punjab have also not been able to settle with a particular playing XI. Both teams would make a few changes in their final XI as they step out on the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
Probable playing XIs of both teams.
Chennai Super Kings- Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir
Kings XI Punjab- KL Rahul, Sam Curran, Mayank Agarwal, Sarfaraz Khan, David Miller, Mandeep Singh, Hardus Viljoen, Ravichandran Ashwin, Murugan Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
The second match on Saturday would be between table toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians at Hyderabad's home ground at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.
Sunrisers Hyderabad cantered to a victory in the match against Delhi Capitals, credit to an early blitz from Jonny Bairstow at the top of the order. Both Bairstow and David Warner have been on song and are expected to get the team off to a good start yet again.
With Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Siddharth Kaul, Rashid Khan and either of Shakib Al Hasan or Mohammad Nabi as their frontline bowlers, SRH look a complete unit and deserve the top spot.
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians got off to a sluggish start in their last match against Chennai Super Kings and lost few wickets in a bunch in the middle overs. But it was then the partnership between Krunal Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav which helped them consolidate.
Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard led the charge in the last three overs and a score, which once looked to be heading towards 150, ended up with 170. Despite the fact that dew set in, Mumbai Indians' bowlers did not allow the Chennai batters to get any sort of momentum throughout the match.
Once Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni were dismissed in quick succession, the match was done and dusted as Mumbai announced their arrival in the league with a 37-run win.
The inclusion of Australian quick Jason Behrendorff has further amplified the killer instinct of the side. With Jasprit Bumrah and Mitchell McClenaghan already in the ranks, MI now possess several wicket-taking options.
Probable playing XI of both teams.
Sunrisers Hyderabad- David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Vijay Shankar, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul
Mumbai Indians- Quinton de Kock, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Yuvraj Singh, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Jason Behrendorff, Rahul Chahar, Mitchell McClenaghan, Jasprit Bumrah
