The Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore meet today at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur.
The loser will definitely be out of the running while a win would put them both in a strong position.
RR are hampered by the absence of Jos Buttler, who has been in sensational form in recent weeks, but he has returned to the England side.
IPL 2018 TV channel
Sky Sports announced in January that they had agreed a “multi-year extension” to their current contract to show the IPL in the UK.
Every single one of the 60 IPL games in 2018 will be live on Sky Sports Cricket while some matches, including the final, will also be shown on Sky Sports Main Event.
In India, the broadcasting rights are owned by Star Sports. Star India will broadcast the IPL in six different languages – English, Hindi, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Bengali – across their 10 channels.
