Sam Collins is asking the questions from the chairman’s chair and is joined by Betting.Betfair.com cricket correspondent Ed Hawkins, colleague Paul Krishnamurty and Sportinglife.com’s Richard Mann.

And they have three matches to work through with possible XIs, head-to-head records and side markets bets discussed. First up they deal with the double-header on Thursday as Rajasthan Royals take on Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians. Paul and Richard are convinced the Royals, heavily depleted, are on a hiding to nothing but Ed is not so sure. Delhi Capitals versus Kolkata Knight Riders is analysed, too, with another split opinion on how the match will pan out.
