Mumbai vs Chennai Live Streaming

We are already into the much awaited play-offs and we are already through the first qualifier played between Delhi and Kolkata. Although Delhi was successful in clinching the first position of points table in the league matches, Kolkata defeated them in the first qualifier to reach the finals of IPL 2012.

Now its time for one of the most exciting matches of IPL 2012 which is the eliminator between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. The team that loses this match is eliminated and the winner goes on to play against Delhi for a place in the final against Kolkata. This is easily the most fancied matches of IPL 2012 because it consists of most popular team Mumbai Indians and the two times IPL winner Chennai Super Kings.

The defeat of Bangalore against Deccan Chargers made way for Chennai into the play-offs. Otherwise Chennai as a team hasn't played upto their potiential. They have been in the top four teams all the IPL years so far. They have reached the IPL finals thrice out of four and won two of them. So they are the team to beat all the way long. Now they have nothing to lose. They may have lost hopes of making it into the second round. But the luck has favoured them. Now its time for them to convert this into a win and once again progress to the finals.

Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni are yet to showcase their brilliance and this is the best opportunity. They are big match turners and they can play innings of their IPL careers to take the team to the finals. Albie Morkel and Dwayne Bravo need to repeat one of those good all round performances to take the team home. Ben Hilfenhaus has been upto the mark with bowling and he needs to continue his good line and length in the eliminator.

Mumbai Indians finished third in the points tally and missed the entry to qualifier just by one point. So they are here placed in the eliminator against Chennai. Mumbai Indians played exceptionally well against Rajasthan Royals in the last league match and won the match by ten wickets. Sachin and Smith took the team home with some sensible batting till the end. Mumbai has good players like Gibbs, Franklin, Rohit Sharma, Rayudu, Pollard who all are well capable of producing match winning T20 performances. Their ace bowler Lasith Malinga can easily turn tables on the opposition.

The venue for this match is M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore which is a flat track supporting the batsmen more than the bowlers. So we can expect a high scoring game here. It is hard to pick up any team as favourites here as Mumbai Indians are in a better form whereas Chennai Super Kings are renowned to play well in the final phases of the league.
