It is really hot out there and poor Disha Patani was made to dance, poor girl!

The opening ceremony is underway and Disha Patani is spiking the mercury levels. Its getting HOT out here!

As Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) won their first match under the newly-appointed captain Steven Smith, it is time for Glenn Maxwell to replicate the same as they lock horns with the RPS side. Maxwell is the new captain of the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) franchise and a lot of hopes have been pinned on him to take the franchise to the play-offs and mat be then win it.

Rising Pune Supergiant is a good unit, which shows it possesses the depth in batting, om the other hand Punjab have a few ominous hitters of the cricket ball. By the looks of it, it is all-set to be a humdinger. The match starts at 16:00 IST.

We are all excited to see a game face challenge between Ishant Sharma and RPS skipper Steven Smith like we witnessed in Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
