MI vs KKR and DD vs CSK - Matches You Can't Miss

IPL Live Streaming Cricket 2013

As IPL 2012 enters its final stages with the most interesting phase where atleast six teams are battling out to make into the play offs. Delhi and Kolkata have been the best of the lot and are resting comfortably on the top two positions. These two teams will feature in today's matches and the opponents MI and CSK are eager to win and  make their position stronger for top four positions.

1st Match - Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders

If we compare these two teams Kolkata is a better outfit due to their phenomenal form whereas Mumbai is still struggling with inconsistent performances. They suffered a bad loss against Bangalore at home due to the unstoppable Gayle storm. A win here would be a good confidence booster for Mumbai Indians.

Kolkata has not lost a single match since last one month and compared to Delhi they are in a slightly better form as they also defeated Delhi in their last face-off. The man leading this team from the front is Gautam Gambhir. He has scored 457 runs and is one of the leading run scorers this year. Lately he has received a good support from Kallis and McCullum. Bowling wise Sunil Narine is almost unplayable and he claimed 15 wickets so far. Rajat Bhatia has bowled well in the middle overs to restrict the run flow.

For Mumbai, it is of utmost importance that all their batsmen contribute well to score big even if they bat first or second because Kolkata has a good batting line up too. Malinga is doing a brilliant job with the ball but he needs an equally good support from Harbhajan, Munaf Patel and company.

2nd Match - Delhi Daredevils vs Chennai Super Kings

Two time defending champions Chennai Super Kings is still struggling with uncertainties of reaching the next stage. Their batting has disappointed the fans in last three to four matches. Fortunately Morkel and Srikanth came to the rescue in last match and clinched a win from nowhere against Rajasthan Royals. This win helped them to climb up couple of positions in points tally. It is almost a must win for Chennai here against Daredevils.

Delhi managed to defeat Chennai at the Kotla stadium last time when they played each other. Today's match gives Chennai the home advantage if they can capitalise on it. If Chennai bowls first they need to ensure that they don't allow Sehwag, Taylor, Warner and Jayawardene to settle for too long. Chennai are among the good chasers and a low score will fetch them a win.

David Warner smashed a big century in last match and he would be the man to watch alongwith the swashbuckling Sehwag. If these two get going from the start, Chennai's hope would reduce to stay alive in the league. Both the teams have good bowlers who can trouble the opposition batting line ups. This match is certainly going to be a nail biter till the end!
