IPL Live Streaming 2012

894 boundaries and 371 sixes! Isn't that phenomenal? This happens only in Indian Premier League and to entertain you IPL brings couple of good matches today to serve you the best available cricketing treat on Sunday! With CSK losing against Kings XI Punjab and RCB losing against KKR there isn't much shuffle in the points table. Still the scenario looks pretty same. The only difference is KKR has now two more points to their name and they move on to 11 points whereas Kings XI Punjab now have 8 points equally Mumbai Indians, Pune Warriors and Rajasthan Royals in terms of points.

1st Match:- Delhi Daredevils vs Rajasthan Royals

The first match on fun day Sunday would be Delhi Daredevils vs Rajasthan Royals. Delhi Daredevils has got a brilliant response this year thanks to their good performances so far. They lead the points table right now and they have a very good chance of reaching the play-offs. Captain Sehwag has led from the front opening the innings for Delhi Daredevils and has hit three consecutive half centuries with a very good strike rate. His 39 balls 73 runs innings against Mumbai Indians was a treat to watch. Kevin Pieterson who won't be playing too long for Delhi as he has to be a part of the series between England and West Indies, has also been in splendid form with the bat. He has played a vital role so far in Delhi's wins. Lately Delhi bowlers have given away loads of runs and things need to be strategised as far as bowling is concerned.

Rajasthan Royals have been a bit off track after getting a very good start to the tournament. Batting has depended a lot on openers Rahul Dravid and Ajinkya Rahane. The only other batsman who has been consistent is Owais Shah with 278 runs to his name. Bowling deparment has been more consistent. Apart from being a handy batsman, Kevin Cooper has bowled well to clinch 10 wickets in IPL 2012. Brad Hogg has been very good with his chinamen deliveries which are unplayable at times.

Delhi Daredevils being the team to beat nowadays seems to be the favourites for this match against Rajasthan Royals. So the prediction goes in favour of Delhi Daredevils who would also be a better knowledgeable team at their home ground.

2nd Match:- Mumbai Indians vs Deccan Chargers

Mumbai Indians are seeking redemption as they host Deccan Chargers. Mumbai Indians have suffered two heavy losses against Delhi Daredevils and its time for them to click form before its too late and they are out of the race for the play-offs.

Deccan Chargers have been the most out of form team this year and now they can play a role of spoiling parties for teams who are doing well. Mumbai Indians with 3 losses out of their last 4 matches eye their best opportunity to gain the lost form if they can beat Deccan Chargers in Mumbai.

Deccan Chargers clinched their first win of IPL 2012 against Pune Warriors and who knows this can bring them back in form! A team just needs one win sometimes to change the fortunes. Will Deccan Charger be able to capitalise on that win still remains a big question. With the likes of Tendulkar, Harbhajan, Franklin, Pollard, Malinga and Rayudu, Mumbai Indians seems to be the favourites tonight but Deccan Chargers will play without any pressure and hence they may find themselves in the driver's seat!

Just sit back and enjoy Super Sunday of IPL 2012. Feel free to post your comments on what do you feel about this year's IPL and what is the factor that has made the difference this year?
