The five-time IPL champions lost their first match against Delhi Capitals by four wickets and then against a resurgent Rajasthan Royals by 23 runs.

On the other hand, KKR, the two-time title holders (2012 and 2014), are second on the points tally currently with two wins in 3 matches. They in fact almost successfully defended 128 vs RCB in their second match, which they eventually lost.
