Indian Premier League matches are shifting from the United Arab Emirates to India, prompting a day without any matches on Thursday.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians played in the last match of the UAE leg, with the Sunrisers winning by 15 runs.

In fact, the Indians are th eonly team without a win, going 0-5 so far. Four teams–KKR, RCB, DD, and SRH are 2-3.

RR is 3-2, CSK is 4-1, and KXIP is atop the standings at 5-0.

The first game of the Indian leg will be the Chennai Super Kings vs the Kolkata Knight Riders, as CSK tries to stay near the top of the standings.

That game will be on Friday at 8 p.m. IST at JSCA International Cricket Stadium, Ranchi.

The Indians will try to get a win against KXIP on Saturday at 4 p.m IST at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai while the Daredevils and Royals play at 8 p.m. IST on Saturday at Ferozeshah Kotla, Delhi.

The matches over the weekend will end with RCB and SRH on Sunday at 8 p.m. IST at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.
