MI vs RCB Live Streaming - KKR vs CSK Live Streaming

This isn't weekend still both the matches are nothing less than block busters. Reason being we are into the final stages of IPL where many teams are trying to find their feet in the play-offs. Mumbai Indians have done well to be in top three and they are now almost in to the next stage unless and until they don't lose all of their games. On the other hand Kolkata are almost in! Other two teams battling out today are Bangalore and Chennai who are still in the race and eager to win all they play to qualify for next round.

1st Match: Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

Mumbai Indians takes on Royal Challengers in Bangalore today. RCB will be wary of the fact that MI has lost just one away match this year. So beating them in Bangalore also won't be easy. RCB has thumped the oppositions comprehensively in last two matches. Mumbai has been in good form lately.

The biggest plus point for RCB is its batting line up. With the likes of Gayle, AB de Villiers, Dilshan and Kohli; they look unbeatable. Bowling is well managed by Zaheer, Muralitharan, etc. On the other hand Rohit Sharma from Mumbai has clicked form with one of the best T20 ton you would have ever seen. Gibbs has made a brilliant come back for Mumbai. Malinga is a feather in Mumbai's crown. So overall this match promises to be a thriller!

2nd Match: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings

Defending champions CSK are left out with just one option if they need to qualify for next round - win everything that they play! So their path ahead is not easy. But they are the best team as far as bounce back is concerned. Beating KKR at the Eden Gardens won't be easy for Dhoni's XI.

CSK is high in confidence with a win over Rajasthan and table toppers Delhi. With 15 points from 14 matches, they have kept their hopes alive in the league. The man in best form recently for CSK is Hilfenhaus who clinched two Man of the Match awards in last two matches due to his brilliant bowling.

Kolkata relies too much on Gambhir's batting. If Gambhir clicks today, Kolkata would look stronger outfit. With the likes of Lee, Kallis, McCullum, Narine and many more to name; Gambhir has a strong team which can beat any team on any given day.
